For the past few days, I've been working out of Fashionista's New York office helping out while Tyler's off covering the shows in Paris. It's been lovely, but also a little dangerous: Our HQ is in the heart of the SoHo shopping district, i.e. in a two-block radius of some of my favorite retailers. As was the case when I lived here, I have not been able to resist stopping into Uniqlo after leaving the office, and wound up picking up a few things while doing so on Monday. The highlight was this sweatshirt from the newest Uniqlo U collection. And while I didn't necessarily need another sweatshirt, I have no buyer's remorse.
As with all pieces from the Uniqlo U line, overseen by Christophe Lemaire in Paris, thoughtful attention has been paid to every detail, making for a good, understated wardrobe staple that still feels special and current. My favorite features of this sweatshirt are the weight and feel — there's a nice, sturdy heaviness to it, but it's still soft and malleable enough to, say, tuck into a pair of jeans — as well as the cut: It's just the right amount of boxy and isn't too long. I also love the ribbed cuffs and crewneck, not to mention the colors: I went with the off-white shade as I'd been wanting a cream sweatshirt for a while, but the other options — a light heathered gray, a washed-out orange, a pale beige, a moss green and black — are also all kind of perfect. All these details have aligned to make this an ideal sweatshirt, especially for the price point.
Uniqlo U Long-Sleeve Sweat Pullover, $29.90, available here.
