At the booth, visitors are able to walk through creative installations and technology displays, across winter snow and cool summer, from nature to the city, exploring the many possibilities offered by LifeWear. Additionally, the UNIQLO booth takes CIIE beyond Shanghai, by playing host to a special space for LiveStation - UNIQLO’s livestreaming shopping and style advice program that can be viewed anywhere by customers.

Epitomizing fashion, technology, and sustainability

Showcasing the evolution of LifeWear, on display are a range of products that epitomize fashion, technology, and sustainability. Visitors to LifeScape are welcomed by the latest Ultra Light Down, HEATTECH, and Fleece offerings, in addition to PUFFTECH garments, which are new for the 2023 Fall/Winter season and utilize air heating technology, and the China debut of Powder Soft Down.

Powder Soft Down features superlative softness, lightness, and warmth through NANODESIGN™ technology developed in collaboration with world-leading materials manufacturer Toray Industries. Available in a rich array of colors, the jacket also features water-resistant and anti-static functionalities, and is easy to clean.
