Want to stand out in the National Day crowd come 9 August? Simple. Design your own local tee to wear with red-and-white-hot patriotic pride.
Whether it’s your favourite Singlish phrase or a plate of char kway teow, if you can dream it, you can design it via Uniqlo’s UTme! app.
Download the UTme! app for free on iOS and Android. All you’ve got to do is create a base graphic image by uploading a picture, typing text, painting, or using stickers. Then choose from the six styles available to shake things up. As in, you literally shake your phone and the app does all the creative styling for you so you can never mess things up with your lack of artistic talent.
And even if you do, just hit the back button to start all over again. The app is ridiculously easy to use and turns out great results every time. The only problem you’ll have is deciding on how many tees you want to customise at Uniqlo Bugis+. You can get them in adult (S$29.90) and kid sizes (S$24.90) if you’re planning to wear the same design as a family.
Not feeling too creative?
If you don’t feel up to the creative challenge, you can also purchase any of the tees from the Uniqlo Street Tales collection. The 55 designs available come from local personalities like Rebecca Lim and Daniel Boey and businesses like Tiger Balm and BreadTalk just to name a few.
Plus if you purchase any of the tees between 4 July through to 10 August, all nett proceeds will go to the Community Chest, and matched dollar for dollar by the government. So there you go, new t-shirt purchases justified.
