Feel the SEA: Uniqlo Unveils Southeast Asian-inspired T-shirts

Japanese clothing brand Uniqlo has always been inspired by culture. With a booming presence in Southeast Asia (SEA), they launched "Feel the SEA", a special collection under their UT T-shirt line. This series was uniquely designed by Southeast Asian graphic designers.

For their latest collaborative project, Uniqlo handpicked SEA-based graphic designers to represent the latest inspirations from the region.

The three graphic design experts express the region’s localities through contemporary graphics – from
drawings of waves that represents unique geographic appearance of the region, to tropical fruit that can be easily found in SEA.
