Japan’s biggest clothes retailer UNIQLO continues to take the lead in relief efforts following the country’s earthquake and tsunami disaster, partnering with a star-studded cast of designers for a new t-shirt collection.
Prints will consist of drawings and scripts, crafted by the likes of Lady Gaga, Karl Lagerfeld, Gwyneth Paltrow, Nicole Kidman, Lanvins Alber Elbaz, Blake Lively, Charlize Theron, Cyndi Lauper, Victoria Beckham, and Orlando Bloom.
UNIQLO whose CEO Tadashi Yanai already donated $12 million of his own money and a lot more in clothes, will release a range of ten new designs June 25.
UNIQLO is working with the Condé Nast Group—a supporter of the Save Japan! website and the publisher of Vogue Japan and GQ Japan—to create T-shirts featuring messages of encouragement from artists around the world. UNIQLO plans to donate approximately 100 million yen through the sale of Save Japan! T-shirts to the Japanese Red Cross Society, to back recovery efforts in northeastern Japan. T-shirts will be retailing for $19.90 each.
For me all the t-shirts are a work of love and hope. My favourite is the Karl Lagerfeld and Cyndi Lauper T- Shirt.
