UNIQLO’s graphic T-shirt brand “UT” will be releasing a “Mamoru Hosoda Animation Works UT” collection on 16th July 2021! This collection is in commemoration of the release of Mamoru Hosoda’s latest work “BELLE” — also known as “Ryu to Sobakasu no Hime“. The collection is composed of six designs, with two designs from “BELLE”, and the rest from other popular Hosoda works such as “The Girl Who Leapt Through Time,” “Summer Wars,” and “The Boy and the Beast.”
“BELLE” is a commemorative project in celebration of Studio Chizu’s 10th Anniversary, and is Mamoru Hosoda’s first feature-length animation in three years since the Oscar-nominated “Mirai of the Future” in 2018. Studio Chizu will also be collaborating with Space Museum TeNQ in a special “Studio Chizu’s Space and Clouds” exhibition, while “The Boy and the Beast” will be adapted into a musical by Shiki Theater Company.
