September 2017, Singapore – UNIQLO launches the SPRZ NY EAMES Collection on 2 October. This collaborative collection will celebrate the groundbreaking contributions of 20th century American designers, Charles and Ray Eames, towards modern design, art and culture. The collection comprises 12 items and it will showcase their timeless designs through Graphic T-shirts and other items that fuse fashion and art.

SPRZ NY, short for Surprise New York, is an ongoing collaboration between UNIQLO and the Museum of Modern Art, where art and fashion meet to create something magical. SPRZ NY items are inspired by fame and influential artists of our time, including specially designed products like T-shirts, outerwear, innerwear and more.

Among the most influential designers of the 20th century, Charles and Ray Eames transformed how people experience and observe the world through furniture, architecture, public spaces and films for more than 40 years. Like UNIQLO, Charles and Ray believed that good design and quality objects should be available to all.

This belief underpinned their work with innovative materials to celebrate the uncommon beauty of common things and to uplift people in everyday lives. Their signature Eames chairs are enduring globally best sellers because they attractively combine sophistication and simplicity.

About Charles and Ray Eames:

Charles and Ray Eames were 20th century design masters who influenced people worldwide. The couple were best known as designers of furniture, but they also left their marks in many other areas, including through architecture, such films as the Power of Ten and the Relative Size of Things in the Universe, industrial design, and toys and graphic designs. Their designs cared for users and paid attention to detail. The couple started working on prototypes through the Eames Office, which they established in 1941. Today, the office embodies the authenticity of the Eames through activities to convey, safeguard, and further their legacy. © 2017 Eames Office, LLC
