UNIQLO is delighted to launch its Star Wars UT (UNIQLO T-Shirt) Artist Collection, which was designed in collaboration with three contemporary artists: Geoff McFetridge, James Jarvis and Kevin Lyons, to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope! The designs featured in this collection have been created exclusively for UNIQLO, and they showcase the artists distinct and unique take on the world's most popular franchise.

Whether you're a proud Trekkie or one who enjoys UNIQLO's Graphic T-Shirts, pieces from the Star Wars UT Artist Collection are versatile for everyday wear as well as for special occasions, such as the highly-anticipated Star Wars Day: May the 4th Be With You festival which takes place from 4 to 6 May!

Show your love for the most celebrated movie of all time by donning a UT from this collection, and immerse yourself in the range of activities available during the festival, including an entertaining light and music showcase and special appearances by Chewbacca and Kylo Ren.

The Star Wars UT Artist Collection comprises 13 designs and is available in men's sizes. The collection will arrive in all UNIQLO stores including UNIQLO's Global Flagship Store at Orchard Central and online at http://www.uniqlo.com/sg on 1 May 2017, with UTs priced at $19.90 each.

1. GEOFF McFETRIDGE

Geoff McFetridge is an artist and designer based in Los Angeles, California. Born in Canada, McFetridge studied at Alberta College of Art and California Institute of the Arts. The artist creates graphic images in fine lines and bold colours, playing with repetition, perspective, and simplicity. Examining the fundamental elements of visual language, the work offers the viewer an opportunity to play with a puzzle for a moment - a puzzle that doesn't have one simple answer.
