Uniqlo’s Urban Sweats by Alexandre Plokhov Gives A Sick, Cool Twist To French Terry

If you thought you were over sweats as a ‘thing’, stop right there. You haven’t really seen it all. Also, who wants sweats to be over? Throwing on a track pant with a Saint Laurent pump is one of the best things in life right now. We do not miss our skinnies and neither does our body. For affordable, quality basics, Uniqlo is rightfully famous. For edgy, streetwear, not so much. But that is changing. The Japanese giant has enlisted Helmut Lang head menswear designer Alexandre Plokhov to create a line of sweats so sick you’ll never want to take it off. And you won’t have to; there’s no fear of looking like you’ve just been to the gym if you show up to dinner in this stuff.

Plokhov has given every piece something extra – longer length hoodies with convertible hoods/collars, cape-style hoodies and knee-length sweatshirt dresses. This stuff wouldn’t look out of place on the racks at Alexander Wang, Barney’s or indeed, Helmut Lang, but it’s not at any of those places, it’s at Uniqlo and it is so affordable you can probably get every single piece. Just don’t wait too long because this is legit going to sell out stat.
