We all know I love a good white tee. And I am always looking for the various graphic tees to rock, so when my friend told me about the KAWS and Uniqlo collab, I was ready! On release day I took a break from work to catch it. The collection released at 10:00am and by 10:01 the site was already draaaaagging. But I managed to secure two of the tees. After watching videos of the chaos that this drop created in China, I’m glad I peacefully filled my cart from the comfort of a computer screen. Hype culture isn’t really my thing, and I do not typically wait for certain releases. But it was my birthday and you can’t beat a $15 shirt to add to my ever growing collection. The Uniqlo collab features American artist Brian Donnelly’s '“Companion” and “BFF” characters. Due to the demand for the shirt, Uniqlo did a second release. Some items are being sold with a $5 to $20 markup on sites like StockX.
