Tanks A Lot
When is a tank top not just a tank top? When it’s made from Uniqlo’s magical AIRism textile. “The new fabric is super thin, light, stretchy and smooth,” says Shu Hung, Global Creative Director for the brand, “It’s highly functional and breathable, moisture on the skin permeates through the fabric.” Ideal for any steamy situation (including workouts), the essential is Hung’s secret to surviving New York’s gruesome summer heat, melting subway temps and all. And it’s also her top pick for a getaway essential. “It’s like a shield that gives you a feeling of freshness,” she says. I’ll testify to being a recent convert: these are a body-cooling game-changer.
