After getting a first look at the collaborative collection yesterday, we now have the pleasure of sharing with you every piece from Uniqlo’s upcoming KAWS collection. UT KAWS includes 20 items in 25 patterns, featuring T-shirts, tote bags and room shoes. From the design and fabrics to the inks, UT Creative Director NIGO and KAWS worked together to ensure that every aspect was carried out with grave attention to detail.
KAWS’s most famous character, Companion, is the centerpiece of the capsule, alongside his signature heart and cloud motifs and his xx branding. The styles also feature UT-specific graphics, which is new territory for KAWS.
The collaborative collection is scheduled to be released online and in the U.S. on April 22, then globally on April 25.
To commemorate the occasion Uniqlo’s Fifth Avenue Flagship Store in New York City will debut the line, where the venue will also showcase examples of the art and designs that KAWS has become well known for internationally.
Prices for the items range from $14.90 USD to $19.90 USD.
