The Pokemon x Daniel Arsham x UT collection has a Singapore release date. The full collection will drop on the Uniqlo online store on June 15. Mark your calendars and cop them all!

The Pokemon x Daniel Arsham x UT Singapore release slated for April 24 imagines Pokemon as fossils that are unearthed thousands of years into the future.

Daniel Arsham has become a popular figure in the art and fashion scene. He worked with Kim Jones to produce the Dior SS20 collection, Hajime Sorayama on collaborative sculptures, Rimowa on a suitcase sculpture and Porsche for his “The House” exhibition. Now, he joins the ranks of street artists, like Kaws, Futura and Stash, to release a collection with Uniqlo UT, which means you can finally own a piece of his work.

The Pokemon x Daniel Arsham x UT collection is comprised of tees featuring graphics by Arsham, who takes his signature “Fictional Archeology” design and applies them on to our favorite Pokemon. The end results are designs that showcase what he imagines unearthing crystalized Pokemon relics would look like.

The collection ranges from kids to adult sizes, with prints featuring iconic characters like Pikachu, Mewtwo, and Jigglypuff.  Prices for the Pokemon x Daniel Arsham x UT collection range from S$14.90 for kids’ tees to S$19.90 for adults’ tees.

The full collection drops on April 24 at the Uniqlo online store.
