The latest addition to UNIQLO’s selection of basics was inspired by geometry. The SUPERGEOMETRIC collection features the Japanese casualwear brand’s signature T-shirts (known as UTs) as well as other apparel and accessories.

The items in the collection are printed with bold patterns and fun prints, all of which pay tribute to seven pioneering artists and their contributions to the fields of art and design. More than a mere assembly of dots and lines, each innovative graphic is the result of experimentation with the fundamental elements of form, shape, and colour. Prices start from S$19.90 for a T-shirt, S$39.90 for a dress, and S$9.90 for accessories.

Comprising a total of 67 T-shirts and accessories such as scarves, caps, and tote bags, the collection was created under SPRZ NY, a UNIQLO project which sits at the convergence of art and fashion. Previous SPRZ NY collaborations have included T-shirts inspired by the works of other prolific creatives, from Andy Warhol to Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat.

The UNIQLO SPRZ NY SUPERGEOMETRIC collection is now available at UNIQLO’S Global Flagship Store at Orchard Central, online at www.uniqlo.com/sg, and at select UNIQLO stores.
