“Neighborhood Living” is theme of latest issue

Global apparel retailer UNIQLO announces the launch of the 2021 Fall/Winter issue of LifeWear magazine. LifeWear magazine is a free publication that conveys the UNIQLO LifeWear philosophy of making the everyday lives of people richer and more comfortable. The theme of Issue 05 for Fall/Winter is “Neighborhood Living.” Through features and interviews, the issue focuses on our relationships with the local, familiar neighborhoods that shape our everyday lives, and how that reflects the positive relationship between comfortable living and LifeWear.

“Is a world where movement is restricted inconvenient, or a new opportunity to expand our horizons?” said Takahiro Kinoshita, Fast Retailing Group Executive Vice President and Creative Director. “While it’s still difficult to get on a plane and visit other countries, the armchair traveler can journey anywhere in the world with ease. We still need to be patient a little longer when it comes to meeting friends who are far away, but now is the time to revisit the places we live, and enjoy time with nearby friends and family. The special features in this issue of LifeWear magazine showcase the life and wear of various countries, and the people who call them home.”
