UT 2013 POP-UP!


On Friday, 3 May 2013 UNIQLO launched the UT POP-UP! Singapore held at 72-13 and transformed the two-level rice warehouse and cultural relic into a fashion and musical stage for the night, where a mega display installation of over 1,000 UTs in 400 designs took centre stage. Guests also had fun posing at the UT Camera Booth, where their animated photos were uploaded on the global UT website. Throughout the night, there were entertainment from local artists and free flow of champagne for the guests.

From chic formal wear to casual daily , from loungewear to underwear, UNIQLO has something for everyone. I have been a fan of UNIQLO especially with their UT which often collaborates with various brands for witty designs. It’s summer all year round in Singapore so T-shirts are particularly useful and have become a staple dress code for most people living in Singapore.

One of the highlights of the launch is the showcase of UNIQLO x NOISE Singapore collaboration. Young artists and photographers had the opportunity to showcase their original works while budding musicians rock on through the weekend long event. There were also limited edition t-shirts designed by Noise artists for sale.

My favorite design was The Singapore Dream by local illustrator, Lim Qi Xuan. You can see more of her work at http://www.qimmyshimmy.com

“The Fresh Grad Cat is a SIngaporean stereotype that has just left school and is entering the industry. After slogging through 16 years in the Singapore education system, it better all be worth it. With his shiny new degree and hungry for the job that pays the best, he does not know what exactly lies ahead. But he is going where the money goes, definitely! Someone’s got to save up to afford that COE,” said Qi Xuan.

New Yorker Keith Haring‘s art is also expressed onto the new UT! New designs will be available in store but in different batches so make sure you check out the UNIQLO outlets regular and look out for the new shipment.
