Osamu Tezuka is often referred to as the “godfather of anime” and “Walt Disney” of Japan with his body of work including classics such as the Astro Boy series. Tezuka’s Unico anime film was first introduced in 1979 as a family-friendly show and manga adaptation featuring a magical baby unicorn with white fur and a pink mane. Unico had the unique ability of bringing happiness to anyone near him wherever he went.
For the collection, Unico is seen interacting with the fragment design thunderbolt logo across a range of pullover hoodies, long-sleeve cut-and-sew tees, and T-shirts. The garments are found in white and black and are complemented by small branding accents below the illustrations, on the bottom hems, and on the sleeves.
The “UE: FRAGMENT/UNICO” collection will be sold on the SOPHNET website and SOPH.shop stores beginning on March 12. Hoodies, long-sleeves, and T-shirts are priced at ¥25,300, ¥15,400, ¥12,100 JPY respectively (approximately $218, $133, and $105 USD)
