UNIQLO, the Japanese global apparel retailer, today announces a major evolution for AIRism, its flagship innerwear line, that leverages technology to rapidly wick away sweat and maintain a smooth and dry feel. New lines making their debut in 2020 include AIRism Micromesh, AIRism Cotton, and AIRism Cotton Blend. AIRism continues to evolve as innerwear that provides allseason comfort, enhancing the everyday lives of wearers.
Men Two new items offer greater comfort • AIRism Micromesh – Exceptional breathability Launched earlier in the year, AIRism Micromesh employs a special mesh with an improved weave that provides exceptional breathability, and wicks away sweat to reduce stuffiness. Compared to the previous mesh type, the cool-touch sensation has been improved by 25%. Stretchiness has been enhanced by 40%, making it so lightweight as to be almost unnoticeable. The lineup includes a seamless type that will not show through outerwear. • AIRism Cotton – Single layer that can be worn as a T-shirt New this year, AIRism Cotton is a dual layer material with cotton on the outside and AIRism on the inside, providing a smooth and comfortable feel. It retains the same functionality of AIRism, and can also be worn easily as a T-shirt.
Women AIRism UV Cut series updated for greater comfort Since its launch in 2019, AIRism UV Cut has been popular as a way to block UV rays easily just by wearing it. The series has been expanded, and updated for greater comfort. New this season are the AIRism UV Cut High Neck T (Sleeveless) and AIRism UV Cut Leggings, which expand the line of comfortable clothing.
Kids AIRism Cotton Blend expands the lineup further The new AIRism Cotton Blend material was launched earlier in 2020 in response to feedback from parents seeking the gentle feel of cotton. The blended weave of AIRism and cotton retains the smoothness and functionality of AIRism, while delivering the natural texture and gentle feel possible with cotton. This series supports the lifestyle of active children with lightweight comfort.
Bedding Goods AIRism Bedding Goods offer round-the-clock comfort Beyond clothing, UNIQLO’s innovative AIRism technology is also applied to bedding goods, offering users round-the-clock cool comfort, even in their sleep. The AIRism bedding goods were first introduced in Japan during Spring/Summer 2018.
About AIRism Skin is exposed to unpleasant sensations every day of the year. Sweat is sticky, temperature differences create stuffiness, and layered clothing can be stiff. The various functions of AIRism regulate the air under clothing, releasing heat and humidity* just like breathing, providing a comfy dryness. With a soft and silky feel on the skin, AIRism is UNIQLO LifeWear that delivers ultimate comfort.
*Heat is released outside clothing through vaporisation, and humidity from good breathability. Product Information Sites
