Shirts and denim shorts are your best friends this summer season. When the weather is too hot, sometimes I just get too lazy to think and grab a nice graphic tee pair and I’m good! Everyone, and I mean everyone, probably owns a t-shirt that they use over and over again (I’m guilty). I know it’s hard to choose shirts that fit you well, but I think I found mine at Uniqlo.
I went there a few days ago and got to try some tees from their UT collection. UT, the Uniqlo T-shirt brand was launched in 2003 and it’s all about mastering art, music, film, animation and other pop culture genres from around the planet, into the realm of wear. It’s to empower free expression for your own individuality! And since each and everyone of us has different personalities, Uniqlo has designed tons of shirts in collaboration with several popular artists like Disney, Music Icons, etc. This year, UT is all about powerful prints and colors, patterns and profiles. The final tally? A collection of more than 1,200 pieces!
You might be overwhelmed and you’re probably thinking how you’re going to choose, right? Worry no more because I’ve gathered some of my favourite pieces from the entire collection. The Shochiku Kabuki collection carries one of Japan’s most treasured cultural traditions. The design is rooted in Kumadori makeup and patterns of the Kabuki style and it will definitely make you feel like you want to go to Japan! The Disney project collection is one of their most popular shirts every year! This time around the designs are more classic and vintage- plus there’s an extra dose of swag in the characters. The Music Icon line showcases music legends from around the world. I got the Coldplay shirt. Lastly, I’m wearing one from the their movies collection and it’s obvious you know what it is.
