Global apparel retailer UNIQLO today announces that it will launch the CELEBRATING SOFIA COPPOLA UT collection on Monday, March 6. This collaboration spotlights some of Ms. Coppola’s greatest achievements since her debut as a film director 25 years ago, flourishing into one of Hollywood’s leading contemporary directors by exploring the subtleties of human life. The UT line presents memorable scenes and quotes from her films.
Commenting on today’s announcement, Takahiro Kinoshita, Fast Retailing Group Senior Executive Officer and Creative Director, said, "Sofia Coppola has many fans around the world, including me. I feel her charm is in her ability to create carefully layered visual expressions, as well as her overall style and way of living a dignified life. I am really happy to be collaborating with Ms. Coppola on our special film-themed UT collection."
Ms. Coppola said, “I am so happy to have this project celebrating my work and hope people will enjoy the T-shirts as a token of the films that are so much a part of my life. They are a great reminder of the collaborators I worked with and the creative experience we shared. I like to wear T-shirts of artists and musicians who I love, and in the same way wish for them to mean something to someone who likes my work. I always like how a T-shirt can connect you to other people who like the same thing you do.”
