Uniqlo is launching a capsule collection of eight items featuring traditional motifs of Indonesian batik fabrics. The lineup includes sleeveless tops for women, dresses and button-down shirts for men. It will be available at eight Uniqlo stores in Japan and on uniqlo.com from June 10. Prices range from 2,990 yen to 3,990 yen, or $28 to $37. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the items will go towards Uniqlo’s Factory Worker Empowerment Project, which supports educational programs for workers at the brand’s supplier factories in Indonesia.
Uniqlo’s May comps jumped 5.9 percent as other Japanese retailers digested declining sales for the month.
