SNEAK PEEK: UNIQLO Haruki Murakami / Murakami Radio UT Collection to launch this March 2021

Kafka on the Shore? Check. Norwegian Wood? Check. IQ84? Check. In case his novels and radio program are not yet enough for your imagination, Japanese author Haruki Murakami has recently collaborated with global apparel retailer UNIQLO to launch the Haruki Murakami / Murakami Radio UT Collection this March 2021. The collection includes six designs based on his best-known novels, and two for Murakami Radio – the music radio program that he hosts in Japan, so fans like us can wear Murakami’s unique and creative world on our sleeves!

Although the full collection will only be available in the Philippines starting March 22, 2021, Manila Millennial was able to get a sneak peek in advance and we’re here to share our favorite designs along with the price so you can also start saving for it as early as now.


Haruki Murakami has a huge collection of T-shirts stacked in cardboard boxes and has written about his favorite T-shirts and the stories behind them. This collaboration takes inspiration from the memorable phrases and striking cover designs of six of his novels that have been particularly praised in Japan and around the world (Pinball 1973, Norwegian Wood, Dance Dance Dance, Sputnik Sweetheart, Kafka on the Shore, and 1Q84) and incorporates the designs into T-shirts. The lineup also includes designs with illustrations of the cat featured on Murakami Radio, the music program that Murakami himself produces and hosts, and other items reflecting his unique sensibility.


The best thing about this creative collaboration is that the price are still the same as other UT collections that the brand previously offered. All designs cost Php 790 each and will be available in all UNIQLO stores nationwide, as well as via their website — Would highly suggest that you order online for safety.

Tip: XS-XL sizes are available in all stores, while 2XL – 3XL sizes are only available online.

Me and my friends are already excited about this new collection. Got my eyes on Murakami Radio (the one with a cat) and Kafka on the Shore! What’s your favorite out of the eight?
