UNIQLO has announced an exciting collaboration with KAWS for a new UT collection. Since 2003, UT has featured an extensive array of pop culture graphics through collaborations with brands and designers like SPRZ NY and the Shochiku Kabuki series. The new KAWS collection celebrates UT’s fusion of fashion with authentic pop culture once more.
UNIQLO is committed to change the world for the better through the power of clothing, and UT is a part of LifeWear, a concept developed to enhance the wearer’s lifestyle with quality clothing that is functional and constantly versatile.
New York-based artist and designer KAWS shared his thoughts: “I have always enjoyed working in different medium, whether it be plastic toys, painting, bronze sculpture, or graphic design. UT is a cool canvas for making my artwork available to people virtually everywhere. I have enjoyed working with the UNIQLO team whose enthusiasm is unparalleled. It is great to be part of the amazing UT platform of my friend and fellow artist NIGO.”
KAWS is a respectable artist who expresses his creativity on the streets of New York, with his subversive images winning him considerable notoriety. Today, some of the world’s most renowned museums and galleries collect and exhibit his critically acclaimed artwork.
