As part of the Japanese fashion brand’s UT graphic tee range, the designs are a limited edition clothing line from the company’s Brands-MASTERPIECE collection, which has also partnered with the likes of Polaroid, Volkswagen, Ducati and audio company Kenwood. UNIQLO has also previously collaborated with Technics on a T-shirt celebrating the turntable brand’s famous SL-1200 model.
The Roland and UNIQLO T-shirts come in two colours, black and white, and with three designs; one features an illustration of the actual 808 drum machine itself and the others include graphics representing the instrument’s coloured drum pads.
The T-shirts are available via UNIQLO’s website and in all retail stores starting 16th April.
