One of the best parts about visiting Japan, or any other country that’s Not Australia, is seeing all the cool things that never make their way down under. Uniqlo’s a great example. They do a ton of work with game publishers, manga artists and major brands, and Australia barely gets any of the good stuff. Fortunately, their upcoming spring collection — some of which is available today — is bringing a much bigger cache of manga, anime and gaming-inspired shirts with it.
The latest Spring/Summer line for 2019 takes inspiration from Nintendo — no surprise there — but also leans heavily on designs from Street Fighter, Mobile Suit Gundam, Monster Hunter, Hunter X Hunter, My Hero Academia, and a bit of Prince of Tennis.
Below’s just a selection of some of the designs.
The whole collection will be available in Uniqlo stores around Australia and through the Uniqlo website. There’s 14 Nintendo designs for men, 8 for women and 8 for kids, with the male and female shirts selling from $14.90 ($9.90 for the kids shirts), and those designs are available today.
As for the Gundam shirts, there’s 12 unisex offerings from $19.90, while 10 Monster Hunter and 12 Street Fighter designs are selling for $19.90. They will all be available from September 13, while the manga-themed shirts will have 28 male designs, 12 female designs and 9 designs for kids, all of which will go on sale from November 4.
