NIGO Named Creative Director of Uniqlo UT
In the months following his high-profile departure from his own founded brand A Bathing Ape, NIGO insisted that he would pursue developing his HUMAN MADE label, and perhaps even retail development. Left out of his description was a new gig with Japanese lifestyle brand Uniqlo, who has recently tapped the legendary designer to become Uniqlo UT’s creative director. This is a hefty responsibility, no doubt, to a brand in the midst of rapid global expansion. NIGO will begin immediately with the men’s, women’s and children’s Spring/Summer 2014 lines.
