Editor’s Notes: Uniqlo’s graphic T-shirt line UT has come through with a collaborative capsule ahead of the release of Weathering With You, the highly anticipated new movie by Your Name director Makoto Shinkai. The Japanese fast-fashion brand has teamed up with Shinkai for a capsule of tees referencing both films, with the collection set to drop on July 15.
Uniqlo and Shinkai’s tees subtly reference the celebrated anime filmmaker’s work, with minimalist line drawings that allude to key objects and characters, as well as bigger prints and images from the films. Each tee will cost ¥1,500 (approximately $14).
Weathering With You is out on July 19 in Japan, with a limited US release on the same day. Check out the trailer below.
