After a successful collaboration with Brooklyn-based artist Kaws (Brian Donnelly), Uniqlo is set to launch another collection that is expected to be just as popular.
According to Uniqlo Indonesia’s official Instagram, the Japanese casual wear retailer is set to launch the BT21 x Uniqlo collection on June 21.
BT21 is a collection of characters created by South Korean group BTS members in collaboration with short-messaging application Line.
BTS is one of South Korea’s biggest boy bands, which makes BT21 x Uniqlo among the most hotly awaited collections.
Previously, the characters were made into various merchandise, such as plush toys, cushions, passport cases and more. The collections were very popular among the band’s fan base, who call themselves ARMY. Online items sold out immediately, while several offline stores ran out of stocks in less than an hour. (jes/wng)
