Renowned Japanese artist Kosuke Kawamura has been enlisted by Uniqlo UT for a capsule collection that reinterprets some of Andy Warhol‘s most iconic artworks.

Kawamura is heavily inspired by Warhol, and as a result, he has produced six T-shirts that combine the iconic pop art pieces with his own style of collage. The results include a T-shirt with the quote “Anyone can do what I do” on the front, which is something Warhol often said of his work, while on the rear you’ll find a spliced and inverted color version of the banana that graced the Velvet Underground & Nico’s debut album in 1967.

Additionally, Kawamura puts his spin on Warhol’s Campell’s Soup Cans by intersecting this with his Marilyn Diptych, and another Campell’s Soup Cans twist that’s covered with another quote from Warhol reading, “When you think about it, department stores are kind of like museums.”

Rounding out the capsule is paint splattered take on Warhol’s 1970 piece Flowers, as well as a T-shirt depicting his Self-Portrait from 1986. Lastly, a black T-shirt is printed with a rough collage of Warhol’s face on the front.

All six T-shirts from the Kosuke Kawamura x Uniqlo UT “Andy Warhol” collection are set to drop sometime in early February, costing ¥1,500 JPY (approx. $14 USD) each. Take a closer look at them above and find out more on the capsule’s webpage.
