KAWS and NIGO for Uniqlo UT Collection Lookbook
NIGO, designer for HUMAN MADE, creative director of Uniqlo’s LifeWear UT division and formerly of BAPE, has linked up with legendary artist KAWS for the exclusive collaborative series. The UT KAWS includes 20 items in 25 patterns, featuring T-shirts, tote bags and room shoes. From the design and fabrics to the inks, UT Creative Director NIGO and KAWS worked together to ensure that every aspect was carried out with grave attention to detail.
UT Creative Director NIGO said, “KAWS has been a friend of mine for more than 20 years, and I’m very happy to collaborate with him for our 2016 UT items. I’m certain that the collection will be a hit around the world. I’ve created things with KAWS quite a few times before, and we’ve got a lot of respect for each other. This project was no exception. We went through a ton of ideas to come up with some great results. I think the T-shirts and other items in the collection reflect KAWS’s amazing worldview.”
The collaborative collection is scheduled to be released online and in stores from April 25th.
