In the brief teaser video above via Instagram, the collaboration provides a glimpse at one T-shirt, worn by NIGO himself, as he enters and sits in a movie theater. The featured tee depicts a graphic illustration of Yoda on the wearer’s back, which recalls to Luke Skywalker’s training scene in The Empire Strikes Back. Meanwhile, the front of the tee is detailed with one of the Jedi master’s classic quotes: “Do, or do not; there is no try.”

Additionally, the clip reveals that NIGO has also called upon his close friends UNDERCOVER’s Jun Takahashi and Tetsu Nishiyama of WTAPS, to aid in designing the forthcoming Star Wars x Uniqlo UT collection. Stay tuned for the official unveiling.
