We're always on the lookout for a stylish way to survive this season's sweat-inducing weather—what, with layering out of the picture, lest you want to deal with unprecedented heatstroke. Thankfully, Uniqlo's got us covered with their latest collaboration for Spring/Summer 2019. After their successful venture into Heattech, the Japanese retail giant returns with yet another Alexander Wang collab—this time, for their innovative AIRism line.
The collection is marked by basic undergarments with a touch of Alexander Wang's sleek styling. Made from lightweight pieces with Uniqlo's AIRism fabric, these sheer pieces—"developed to feel like second skin"—are essentially built to beat the sweltering summer heat. In particular, Alexander and Uniqlo hope to present this new line of basics as an added step to the growing fashion movement of wearing innerwear as outerwear. The best part? Each piece is affordable, as the entire collection ranges from P590 to P1490!

What made you decide to create another line with Uniqlo?
"We first collaborated with UNIQLO in 2008 for a capsule collection and I’ve stayed in touch with Mr. [Tadashi] Yanai (founder oof Uniqlo) ever since. He’s always been supportive of the brand and told me to re-connect when I had another idea."
