To say that American artist, KAWS had a big year would be an understatement. He has collaborated with Kim Jones for his debut at Dior Men, hosted multiple exhibitions around the world—including a massive inflatable sculpture of his famous Companion in Seoul’s Seokchon Lake—and, what has to be the icing on the cake, partnered up with UNIQLO.
But this isn’t the first time to KAWS and the Japanese retail giant have worked together. From solo efforts to bringing on American pop culture icons like Snoopy, these two powerhouses are no strangers. The latest Sesame Street collection is the second of the year, which features an expanded range of ready-to-wear including the addition of pullovers and hoodies.
The ready-to-wear pieces sees KAWS stamp his unique take on embroidered graphics depicting key characters from the Sesame Street gang: Big Bird, Elmo, Cookie Monster, Bert and Ernie all make an appearance.
But the most exciting part of the collection is that UNIQLO has brought these Sesame Street characters (as reinterpreted by KAWS) to life in the form of a plushie. Who said soft toys are just for kids? Whether you buy them for your 12-year-old nieces and nephews, or indeed, stock up for yourself, these KAWS x UNIQLO UT x Sesame Street merch are guaranteed to sell out. Fast. The plushies are available separately and also come in a limited edition box set featuring all five characters.
The KAWS x UNIQLO UT x Sesame Street collection will be dropping on 23 November on both their online store at 12 midnight, as well as all UNIQLO stores in Malaysia. Complete Box Set is only available online and Fahrenheit 88.
