Brand: Uniqlo UT x Line Friends
Key Pieces: The simple white tee with heart pocket detailing is the collections must-cop for anyone wanting to hone a low-key but still cute aesthetic.
Release Date: June 21
Editor’s Notes: Uniqlo UT has come through with yet another hype-worthy tee collection, this time in collaboration with Line Friends, the emoji characters associated with Japanese messaging app Line. The capsule is called “BT21” and features a bunch of cute characters inspired by K-pop sensations, BTS.
There are eight characters in total, with standouts including a “pinkish tough bunny” called Cooky, a prancing pony called Mang, and a puppy called Chimmy. Previews of the collab are available online now, but the tees won’t hit stores until Friday, June 21. Every shirt in the collection is priced at $14.90.
