Michelin Tire PLC , the French tire manufacturer, has launched a collaboration with
UNIQLO Co Ltd for its The Brands Masterpiece series from the Spring & Summer
Collection of the UT T-shirt brand.
The Brands Masterpiece series is a brand-collaboration project that uses logos or noted
products from some of the world’s most famous companies as motifs. T-shirts featuring the
Michelin Man will be sold at UNIQLO stores nationwide and via the UNIQLO Online Store,
under license from Michelin Lifestyle Limited.
