April 12, 2012, Manila, Philippines –Why wear a T-shirt, when you can wear UT?
UNIQLO is a global apparel brand that does not dictate trends but allows individuals to express themselves by what they wear. With that desire of self-expression, UNIQLO offers a UT that is a UNIQLO T-shirt brand of PERSONAL EXPRESSION. As UNIQLO prepares to open its first store at the SM Mall of Asia this June, Filipinos will now have access to hundreds of ways to speak what they truly feel – that is through the wide range of unique concepts and designs of UT!
UT is unlike any other T-shirt. It is a tool to “make a statement.” As embodied in the UT Philosophy — “A T-shirt is more than just a T-shirt. It’s an expression of who you are. Where you’ve been. What you love. That’s the UT philosophy.”
UNIQLO collaborates with highly recognized names in the global pop culture in order to create a wide range of designs that captures people’s imagination and desire for self-expression. Yet despite the international stature of the design partners, UT products are priced affordably so that every Filipino can enjoy them. L. Ashley, Barbie, Hello Kitty, CONCORD MUSIC GROUP, Metal Gear, and Gundam, are just some of the designs to choose from. Kids, teens, yuppies and young at heart—there is definitely one UT for everyone.
“For UNIQLO, T-shirts are not just T-shirts. UT is a brand that helps people express who they are, their character and personality. We offer many T-shirt designs every year so we are sure that whoever you are and what you feel, there will always be a UT just for you,” explains Katsumi Kubota, Managing Director, Fast Retailing Philippines, Inc.
