UT Peace For All: Behind the Designs

Jun 17, 2022 LifeWear
Our new ongoing charity T-shirt project
The world needs peace now more than ever. That's why we have established the PEACE FOR ALL UT Project: an ongoing collection of unique T-shirt designs that promote messages of peace and unity. 100% of the profits from the sales of these T-shirts will be donated equally among UNHCR, Save the Children Japan and Plan International.

In creating these T-shirts, we have partnered with world-renowned leaders in art, design, literature, science, and sport who support the idea of taking action in the name of global peace. These volunteers have each designed a UT T-shirt that embodies their individual call for peace. Contributors include:

JONATHAN ANDERSON / TADAO ANDO* / INES DE LA FRESSANGE* / AYUMU HIRANO / REI INAMOTO / KOSUKE KAWAMURA / SHINGO KUNIEDA / CHRISTOPHE LEMAIRE / HARUKI MURAKAMI* / KEI NISHIKORI / GORDON REID / KASHIWA SATO* / ADAM SCOTT / HANA TAJIMA / SHINYA YAMANAKA


*T-Shirts designed in collaboration with marked volunteers are available from June 17th online and in-store. All other designs will become available at later dates.



UT Peace for All T-Shirt (Tadao Ando)


"In today’s increasingly fragmented world, we need to reacquaint ourselves with the fact that we all live together on one single planet. That is why I have used this particular message. To achieve “The Earth is One,”it is vital that each one of us thinks very carefully about what we, as individuals, can do for society."


Tadao Ando - Urbanist, Architect



UT Peace for All T-Shirt (Shinya Yamanaka)


"I took part because I wanted to do something useful as an individual in addition to promoting research as a physician-scientist. The ability of science and technology to change the world for the better is entirely dependent on the people who use it. So I added the message “Humanity must progress.”"


Shinya Yamanaka - Physician, Scientist



UT Peace for All T-Shirt (Ines de la Fressange)


"Today designers and fashion brands must be generous and think firmly about the world and about humanity. I believe people will enjoy participating in this new and ongoing commitment and in expressing their views about peace in such a specific way. Don’t you want to wear this T-shirt?"


Ines de la Fressange - Model, designer



UT Peace for All T-Shirt (Haruki Murakami)


"I just wanted to be of some use (maybe not much, but still...). I think it would be nice to create a world in which people, and cats, can live in peace."


Haruki Murakami - Novelist




UT Peace for All T-Shirt (Kashiwa Sato)


"I designed my T-shirt to convey the concept of PEACE, straight and simple. The repeated call for PEACE FOR ALL represents the feelings and voices of many people worldwide. It expresses a strong and heartfelt desire for a peaceful world."

Kashiwa Sato - Creative Director
