League of Legends has been doing fashion collaborations for years, but traditionally they’ve been more haute couture, high-end brands regular gamers would never be able to buy. Uniqlo’s upcoming offering, on the other hand, should be way more accessible.
There’s no information on what inspiration Uniqlo is taking with the line, what champions or designs will be highlighted, how wide the range will be in Australia and when it’ll be released. The only thing we know for sure about the existence is the official note from the League of Legends Twitter, which simply put out this one promo image. It looks like Ahri is wearing a shirt featuring Riot’s virtual K-pop group K/DA, if you zoom in far enough.

Riot’s fashion designs have been pretty wild in the past, and it’ll be interesting to see how Uniqlo lives up to that. Some of their collections have been pretty good in the past, and hopefully the League collection will have a decent amount of options for women.
Update 21/04: Riot has officially published the six designs that Uniqlo will showcase, which includes the K/DA shirt in the Tweet above, one highlighting Jinx, the League of legends logo, and a white shirt with a ton of poros.
The six shirts will sell for $19.90 each and will be sold “in sizes XXS-3XL”, according to Riot’s official release.
“The League of Legends UT collection will be available globally on UNIQLO’s website and in-stores while supplies last,” the company added.
