Uniqlo's supreme reign in the kingdom of staples has no end in sight, and that's partly down to assets like the UNIQLO U range. Designed in tandem with Christophe Lemaire, Uniqlo U returns every season with attractive price tags and the even more attractive dusty palettes and elegantly relaxed cuts that are usually reserved for Lemaire's eponymous label.

After Lemaire's recent Fall/Winter 2021 show which offered a typically intoxicating cocktail of effortless tailoring and dialed-down color palettes, Uniqlo U SS21 comes at the perfect time to get your new-season Lemaire fix without crushing your bank account. The same deconstructed blazers and airy pants that characterized Lemaire FW21 can be found mixed in with the evergreen raglan and pocket tees of the Uniqlo U collection. We're also particularly taken by the overt workwear allusions this season; heavy canvas trousers with a sharp crease to each leg proffer signature Lemaire flair.

The thing that really puts Uniqlo U on the map each season is the finesse with which it tiptoes the line between essential staples and highlight pieces. From the evergreen, heavyweight tees to gloriously boxy, clean outerwear, Uniqlo U SS21 has every angle that we look for when the time comes to rebuild a new-season wardrobe. Don't sleep, though, Uniqlo U doesn't usually hang around for long.
