Global apparel retailer UNIQLO will launch the Jason Polan UT collection on February 15, 2021. In January 2020, the New York artist passed away at the age of 37 and is mourned by many. UNIQLO began a special partnership with Polan in 2016, releasing three UT collections that shared his art with the world. This newest offering remembers his talented takes on everyday life. UTs (UNIQLO T-shirts) offer an array of authentic pop culture and art graphics from around the world that allow the wearer to express their individuality.
Showcasing Jason Polan’s loving take on everyday life and iconic art
In 2008, Polan took to the streets with his pen and notepad to take on the challenge of drawing every person in New York. Designs from this new UT collection feature some of those sketches and notes on the scenes he captured to enable people to sense the world as Polan saw it. The collection also features drawings from Polan’s time in Tokyo and his loving sketches of giraffes, hamburgers, and tigers that embodied his style.
