light luxury by UNIQLOBy Pat Law • Apr 25th, 2012 • Category: The Fashionista
In a tropical country that sizzles in heat and suffocates of humidity, Linen makes wonderful company for one’s everyday outfit. Smooth, light, with a gentle-to-the-skin texture, Linen offers a level of comfort unlike her cousins Cotton and Silk due to her moisture absorption and evaporation properties.
I’m digging my new stash of linen luxury from UNIQLO, especially from its Premium Linen collection.
Made up of 100% French linen (highest quality grown in France or Belgium ), the material offers exceptional summer comfort because of the material and absorbs and releases moisture. Wrinkles are one of the linen’s attributes and one of its appealing aspects. UNIQLO has ensured the fabric to consist of a special finish to minimize wrinkling, as well as making sure it has a sophisticated appearance while retaining its softness and texture.
