Editor’s Notes: Following on from the joint Peanuts collection that dropped earlier this year, this month iconic street artist KAWS is dropping another capsule in partnership with Uniqlo UT, this time themed around legendary kids TV show Sesame Street.
KAWS first hinted at the drop via Instagram and now we’ve received imagery of every item in the collection, as you can see from the gallery above. The capsule is full of childhood nostalgia, with Sesame Street favorites such as Cookie Monster, Elmo, Oscar, and Count von Count appearing alongside KAWS’ own BFF. The collection will first release in the U.S. tonight at 9 p.m. EST, before dropping in the EU tomorrow, June 29.
Among the collection are prints featuring individual characters, cute pocket tees, and an all-over print tee featuring the best-loved Sesame Street characters. The T-shirts will be available for both kids and adults (because you’re never too old to rock a Sesame Street tee).
Uniqlo has also announced that KAWS will be present at the brand’s NYC 5th Avenue flagship store to sign items from the KAWS x Uniqlo Sesame Street collection. The signing will take place on June 29 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. EST for the first 150 customers on a first-come, first-served basis. Note that signing is limited to one item from the collection per person.
