Japanese fashion company Uniqlo has launched a new version of the Uniqlo Calendar, an online widget providing seasonal videos, music and images of Uniqlo merchandise. Uniqlo Version III can be enjoyed as a screensaver, a calendar on the PC desktop, embedded in blogs, and shared as a musical greeting card. Currently Uniqlo is promoting the winter collection with footage of wintry scenes from around Japan, along with traditional New Year ceremonies and pop culture videos. The scene shown here is the Penguin Walk at Asahiyama Zoo in Hokkaido. Click on the people in the scenes to view Uniqlo clothing. Also shown here is Florentijn Hofman’s Rubber Duck project in Osaka.
