Editor’s Notes: Uniqlo taps New York-based, Korean-born artist Yoon Hyup for its latest collection of graphic tees, hoodies and sweaters. Once again Uniqlo pays homage to the iconic Disney characters, but this time around, Mickey and Minnie are presented in Hyup’s signature graphic style.
Yoon’s work explores spontaneous painting style using lines-and-dots inspired by skateboarding, as well as jazz, funk and hip hop. The collection showcases this aesthetic with a solid selection of white tees ($14.90 each), that will appeal to Disney fans and Hyup fans alike. The crewnecks ($29.90 each) are also standouts. The gray colorways come with two different Mickey profiles. Hoodies come in black, gray and mustard yellow colorways.
