What made you start your sport?

I’ve always liked being active, ever since I was a kid. A friend asked me if I wanted to go to a boxing session with her, and I said yes! We were 8 years old at the time. I got hooked really quick. I learned new things every week and felt like I was improving for every session.

OLYMPIC & PARALYMPIC collection

SWE graphic short sleeved t-shirt

Internationally renowned collage artist Kosuke Kawamura created the graphic art on this official men’s and women’s teamwear. The design combines Sweden’s national flag with the “Tillsammans” tagline, meaning “Together!” in English.

The idea is to bring athletes and supporters together during the Games to reach greater heights. 60% of the fabric of the T-shirt is made from polyester fibers derived from recycled plastic bottles. It feels as refreshing as cotton, employing UNIQLO’s sweat-wicking DRY technology to keep wearers comfortable all year round.

"I hope that athletes and Swedish supporters alike can enjoy this T-shirt as comfortable everyday LifeWear and use it as a fun cheerleading item"

- Mr. Kawamura

Born in Hiroshima in 1979. When he’s not exhibiting his collage art in galleries throughout the world, Kawamura also finds time for collaborations with companies to design music and film fliers, book jackets, and apparel. His latest art book is Kosuke Kawamura: Archives, published earlier this year, highlights his work over the years.

About

In January 2019, UNIQLO became the Main Olympic Partner and Official Clothing Partner for the Swedish Olympic and Paralympic teams.

Under the partnership, UNIQLO will provide its LifeWear apparel to Sweden's athletes and officials for four years, including the Tokyo 2020 Olympics and Paralympics, the Beijing 2022 Winter Games.

Apparel provided to both teams will be worn during training, competition, ceremonies, press engagements and downtime. This all-purpose approach to clothing is a natural extension of UNIQLO's ambition to create LifeWear designed to serve every moment of everyday life.

LifeWear was born out of UNIQLO's drive for simplicity, quality and longevity. Made to excel in any occasion, LifeWear by nature appears simple but boasts incredible functionality. Thoughtful attention to detail leads to continual innovation in the pursuit of warmer, lighter and better clothing.

Together with the Swedish Olympic Committee and Swedish Paralympic Committee, we look forward to celebrating record-breaking performances both on and off the field. We invite you to join us in the evolution of LifeWear.
