I have been a Uniqlo customer since the brand opened its first New York flagship in 2006. My first purchase was a black HEATTECH long-sleeve shirt to keep me warm during crazy unpredictable NYC winters. Since then, I have added multiple pairs of shirts and bottoms in black, camo and grey. Ask any New Yorker how they keep warm in the winter and HEATTECH is likely a part of their answer (along with Uniqlo’s Ultra Down Light). So when Uniqlo asked me to join their HEATTECH campaign, it was an obvious yes.
My HEATTECH long-sleeve shirt and bottom layers were two of the first things I packed for my 1+ year of travel because I knew they would keep me warm when I needed it, without adding bulk to my luggage or my frame. And just as I predicted, they have both come to the rescue during some cold spells in Belgrade and Seoul.
Temperatures dropped from balmy 60s down to frigid 20s overnight, and then back up to bearable 40s while I was in Korea. Even with just a suit on, HEATTECH layers kept me warm to the core. But style transcends the physical. Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak (thanks Rachel Zoe), and HEATTECH provides comfort beyond just the cold. There’s a sense of security when it comes to winter layers that protect me and keep me warm..
