KAWS new collaboration with UNIQLO, named KAWS:SUMMER, has been released on Monday the 3rd worldwide and people have gone crazy over it. Some parts of the collection sold of out in minutes. Some people even forcefully removed t-shirts off mannequins.
KAWS announced on Twitter that this collaboration will be his last with UNIQLO. This might have added to the value of it even more and many people will probably try to buy every last piece they find.
If you are in Japan you might be in luck. Some of the popular designs are still available online and in many stores in limited sizes and quantities. Since Uniqulo is still based in Japan and has the biggest number of stores here, the quantity produced is often larger than overseas.
If you want to get your hands on them make sure to drop by the next UNIQLO you see to get what is still available. Even some pieces of his older collection might still be available.
You might also be able to order online if you stay at a hotel in Japan but please make sure beforehand if it is possible for you to receive packages at the place you stay. UNIQLO Japan does not ship worldwide!
