Few artists and their body of work are as classic yet contemporary as Jeff Koons and his “Balloon Dogs”. First released as part of his “Celebration” series in 1993, these playful sculptures are now one of the most iconic works of modern art. Now, you too can own a piece of Koon’s masterpiece—without the million dollar price tag, of course—with the Jeff Koons UT Collection at UNIQLO.
“I enjoy very much how UNIQLO is in contact with my generation but also a younger generation. Everybody enjoys, very much, their clothing and I love that sense of unity. I hope that this collaboration will help people around the world to connect with each other and that art will enrich their daily lives,” says Koons on the collaboration.

The artworks chosen for this collaboration celebrate self-acceptance, empowerment, and transcendence. The eight items in this collection will also be sold at the Qatar Museums IN-Q giftshop during the artist’s solo exhibition Jeff Koons: Lost in America, presented by Qatar Museums, which opens in Doha this November. A portion of the proceeds from this collection will go towards funding the Dadu, Children’s Museum of Qatar that’s still under development.
