Following the recent Blizzard graphic T-shirt collaboration, UNIQLO has introduced a totally different type of joint effort. Designed in partnership with legendary graphic designer Peter Saville, a series of UNIQLO’s functional activewear is refreshed with subtle abstract patterns.

Though he’s worked with fashion entities that include Burberry, Raf Simons and Dr. Martens, Saville hasn’t yet designed a full UNIQLO collection — he did provide a Pac-Man design for a UNIQLO UT offering in 2009, though. Still, this activewear line is first fully-fledged UNIQLO release, yielding an array of lightweight layering pieces for men and women.

A yellow DRY-EX polo is the collection’s boldest piece; though several items are available in bright yellow tones, the majority of goods are offered in muted tones of grey and navy. Other breathable DRY-EX layers include several crewneck tees and a pair of shorts, all emblazoned with bespoke prints. Nearly all the garments are realized with swirling, shapeless imagery reminiscent of smoke, except for one textural tee that recalls the pulsar radio waves that inspired the cover of Joy Division’s Unknown Pleasures. The menswear offering is rounded out by a pocketable parka, replete with the thematic print.

Peter Saville’s collaborative activewear range hits UNIQLO’s Japanese site and stores on June 24 — stay tuned for the Western release.

Recently, the KAWS x UNIQLO capsule resulted in stampedes at Chinese malls.
