It’s questions like these that I considered whilst holed up in my apartment, growing gradually more deaf from the smack of torrential rain off the kitchen windows, and despite several potential apocalypse-ready brands, the only really satisfactory answer to the burning question was Uniqlo.
Born out of a desire to provide impeccable quality, wearability and aesthetic simplicity on a large scale, the Japanese brand ticks all the fare-well-in-freak-weather boxes…
Will it keep the elements at bay?
Naturally – with outerwear like this cotton and polyamide jacket from the final +J collection. Face the perils of Winter with mistress of minimalism, Jil Sander, at your figurative side.
Will it keep me warm?
Undoubtedly – with knitwear, down jackets and their in-house technological advancement known as Heattech (whereby clothing fibres convert moisture from the body to heat energy), Uniqlo keeps the biting cold at bay.
