Uniqlo Singapore Neighbourhood T Shirts for National Day!




Uniqlo goes local





To celebrate National day and 10 years of calling Singapore home, Uniqlo together with Singapore-based hand letter artist E.J had created 10 typography designs that represent our 'hood'.These T-shirts will not be mass-produced, instead, they will be housed under the Ultme collection, titled #UTWearYourOwnHood.

You can get them printed on the spot at the UTme! booth at UNIQLO Orchard Central Global flagship store at $29.90 for adults and $24.90 for kids. It's not cheap, so our guess is that scaplers would leave it alone.



The unique thing for these t-shirts are that the placement of each sticker design can be customised in-store and you could choose to paste it anywhere you want!

Bedok

Mentioned Bedok and Blk 85 BaK Chor Mee comes into mind. If you are craving for noodles, this one is for you. Else, just buy it because you stay there!

Bukit Timah

Bukit Timah is known for the multiple millionaires living on a stretch of road alongside fancy restaurants. It also has a rail corridor where the former Bukit Timah Railway Station resides.

Katong

Katong and Peranakan culture are interlinked. It is perhaps best represented by the row of colourful Peranakan houses along Koon Seng Road where scores of tourists descend to take a selfie for Instagram. Now Katonites can proudly wear the houses on their chest.

Punggol

If you are having supper at Punggol, you would not go wrong with Nasi Lemak. The original Punggol Nasi Lemak is now at Jalan Besar, but don't let that stop you from wearing the shirt!

Serangoon

Another popular supper hunt is Chomp Chomp. That's probably why they're a few bites into the design (Chomp chomp... get it?)


Tampines

Tampines St42 HDB is what inspired this T-shirt. A retro TV Screen is actually painted on the block on that street. A must buy especially for those staying in the block!

Telok Blangah


Those who go Paktor or exercise love Henderson Waves. Wear this shirt when you go dating there. A sure conversation starter.

Tiong Bahru

Tiong Bahru old market is world-famous for its amazing Chwee Kueh. Personally, I have not tasted it yet, but I am sure the stall owners would love to get their hands on this one.

Toa Payoh


This dragon playground can fight with Merlion as the official symbol of Singapore. It appears in as many souvenirs shops as the Merlion. If you do not know where it is, we will let you in on the secret location. It's printed on the shirt.

Yishun

Don't rub your eyes, there is a knife there on the shirt for Yishun. Why a knife - because it is Yishun, the most notorious neighbourhood that is our very own 'Tenderloin'. Often in the news, but not always for the right reasons.

If your own neighbourhood is not featured and you would like to represent, simply design your own t-shirt with #Utme at Orchard Central
