UNIQLO has launched its 2015 UT (UNIQLO T-shirt) line, with around 35 graphic themes from iconic characters to designs inspired by businesses and collaborations with gifted designers and illustrators. In more than 1,200 colors and patterns, it is available at all UNIQLO stores (selection may vary per location) and through the online store.
UT first launched in 2003, as a fresh approach to the classic T-shirt. For the collection’s 13th year, UNIQLO presents a more global lineup, and under “THE NEW MODEL T” tag line, UT continues to evolve as a wardrobe mainstay. UT aims for authentic pop culture content, and UT Creative Director NIGO, with UNIQLO, sifts through a wide range of materials to select every detail - from the graphics to the materials.
New graphic content this season includes the Shochiku Kabuki Project, a collaboration with Shochiku Co., Ltd. -a major Kabuki, film and theater company in Japan- that showcases Japanese traditions in pop culture through clothing; U.K. picture book characters Mr. Men Little Miss; Belgian cartoonist Hergé’s TINTIN; and the Dutch character Miffy, as well as graphics inspired by companies such as British sewing goods company MERCHANT & MILLS, New York bicycle maker Brooklyn Machine Works, and 400-year-old Japanese cotton textiles trading company Eirakuya. In addition, the collection features collaborations with storybook author and illustrator Leo Lionni, and New York interior goods designer Thomas Paul. New to the popular Musical Icons series are artists Aerosmith, Metallica, and Coldplay. Finally, the Disney Project newly incorporates graphics from the Mickey Mouse Club, with unconventional Mickey designs.
