KAWS Previews New Companion & ‘BFF’ UNIQLO UT Collaboration.
The popular cultural artist known as KAWS just gave us a quick teaser of his upcoming collab with Japanese retailer UNIQLO. KAWS worked with the fast-fashion brand before so it’ll be interesting to see what they come up with this time.
He took to Instagram to share two videos, in the first video, we see the KAWS’ Companion in three different T-shirt styles. Starting with new drawings of a pink BFF Companion hugging a smaller Companion. There’s also a blue BFF Companion sitting on a ledge. Lastly, there’s a dissected Companion. Along with the clip, KAWS captioned the video with:
“COMPANION was super disappointed that someone leaked photos of my new collection with @uniqlo so he thought it best to just show you a few…”
As for the second clip, the Brooklyn artist’s blue BFF character showcased a set of graphic tees in kids sizes. We don’t know much regarding the forthcoming collaboration. But as I stated earlier KAWS has worked with UNIQLO UT and because of their longstanding relationship, we can likely expect more graphic tees, crewnecks. Hopefully, this time around we can get some plushes.
We’ll keep you posted when we learn more and have some release notes to share. In the meantime, you can view the teasers below. Lastly, for more fashion news, UNDEFEATED Release Their Spring/Summer 2019 Collection.
