With the theme of "WEAR YOUR WORLD", UT creates LifeWear to express the personality and passion of each person. In this project “CAPTURE YOUR WORLD”, UT will introduce photos created by artists who express their unique worldview through the medium of photography.
The three UT collections picked up for this volume are Keith Haring x Tokyo, which focuses on the relationship between Keith Haring and the city of Tokyo, Alice in Wonderland which features fresh illustrations by up-coming artists of Alice from the Disney film "Alice in Wonderland", and Jason Polan which pays homage to Jason Polan, an artist based in New York who portrayed people's everyday life in his work. For this time, we’ve teamed up with three photographers, Mayuka Katano for Keith Haring x Tokyo, Rie Yamamoto for Alice in Wonderland, and Go Itami for Jason Polan UT collection.
