Key Pieces: Takahashi’s “DROIDS” tee has taken the iconic image of R2-D2 alongside C-3PO. He has rendered the characters in a cartoonish style that extends throughout his capsule.
Release Date: April 29
Editor’s Notes: The full Uniqlo UT x Star Wars collaboration has arrived, just a day after NIGO teased the release on Instagram. The collection features designs by NIGO (who is currently the creative director of Uniqlo UT), UNDERCOVER’s Jun Takahashi, and WTAPS’ Tetsu Nishiyama.
Each of the designers has put their own distinct twist on iconic imagery and concepts from the Star Wars franchise. Jun Takahashi has employed a cartoon-style for his capsule. Nishiyama’s offering of tees features a retro-looking Mandalorian recruitment poster that reads “Join us now!” alongside a classic red tee with the famous Star Wars logo. While NIGO favors a text-based approach that includes Yoda’s famous, “Do. Or do not. There is no try.”
Men’s T-shirts come in at ¥1,500 (approx. $13.40) while kid’s sizes are ¥990 (approx. $8.85), head to Uniqlo to find out more.
