UNIQLO, JW Anderson collaborate for 2021 Spring/Summer Collection

THE 2021 Spring/Summer UNIQLO and JW Anderson collection will be launched on April 23. The new lineup is the fruit of an ongoing collaboration with the London-based brand revolutionizing contemporary fashion. The collection continues to evolve UNIQLO’s LifeWear with signature JW Anderson craftsmanship and heirloom charm. Designer Jonathan Anderson says that, “I was really thinking of Spring when I was working on this collection. We were all staying inside and I was looking forward to when we could venture out again. I also wanted to incorporate a feeling of craft, as it’s very important to me” A playful sense of ease threads through the range. T-shirts, blouses, hats, tote bags, and other items feature wildflower embroidery accents with appearances that vary according to hue and fabric. Other noteworthy touches are blanket stitching on men’s T-shirts and work shirts and on women’s denim items, as well as bohemian smocking on dresses and skirts. Cool linen and seersucker lighten the impact of such key collection colors as khaki, brown, and ivory. Men’s and women’s offerings include shorts and feature the homespun feels of linen blends and slub cotton. Signature JW Anderson craftsmanship shines through in the stitchwork and simple silhouettes of this relaxing collection. The lineup includes 15 items for women, 13 items for men and two goods items.

Longchamp and Filt join for summer bags

THE TWO French Maisons Longchamp and Filt joined forces in a collaboration that revisited and added a new twist to two iconic bags: Le Pliage and the essential string shopping bag. This hybrid design is available in six colors, adopts the large mesh of the string shopping bag and is adorned with the Russian leather handles and flap of the Le Pliage bag. Signature details add a touch of sophistication and make it the must-have bag for Summer 2021. “It’s rare for a collaboration to bring together two bags. But I like the idea of a union between two icons that combine to exalt an allure, personality and a little humor,” says Sophie Delafontaine, Artistic Director of Maison Longchamp in a company statement. Longchamp is exclusively available at Rustan’s Makati, Rustan’s Shangri-La, Rustan’s Cebu, Greenbelt 5 and Rustans.com

ASICS launches two new shoes

ASICS has launched two high-performance running shoes that take the power of human-centric design to the next level. METASPEED Sky and METASPEED Edge have each been scientifically designed with a distinct type of running style in mind. The new racing shoes help elite athletes to reach the top of their game, because they don’t have to adjust their running style to fit the shoe anymore; instead, ASICS is giving them high-performance shoes that support their running style. The unique design story behind the two new shoes centers on a crucial insight by scientists at the ASICS Institute of Sport Science (ISS). They recognized that the type of shoes powering the world’s fastest were only favoring one type of runner — stride runners — those with a long-loping gait with large periods spent airborne who increase their speed by extending their stride length. ASICS research however showed that these shoes do not fully support elite athletes who prefer the second major running style — cadence, which features smaller steps made while hovering over the ground with minimal up and down motion. Crucially, these runners increase their speed by both extending their stride length and increasing the number of steps they take per minute. The sports scientists at the ISS were able to measure that athletes perform better when running in shoes that are optimized for their running style. Addressing the challenge, ASICS has created the METASPEED Sky for stride runners and METASPEED Edge for those with a cadence style — both specially optimized and proven to improve runner performance for each of the two major running styles. The METASPEED Sky will be available globally this April at ASICS Bonifacio High Street via the ASICS website and is already available at selected specialty retail stores. The METASPEED Edge will be available from June 4. Both shoes will retail for P13,890.
