The Louvre Museum said Thursday it has agreed to collaborate with the Uniqlo casual clothing chain to sell items including T-shirts carrying images of masterpieces in its collection, such as the Mona Lisa.

Under a four-year partnership, the museum will create T-shirts and other clothing items together with the Uniqlo clothing brand for sale online as well as at stores. The items will be sold at Uniqlo stores in Japan and abroad as well as the museum's online shop from Feb. 4.

"I am honored and excited to be partnering" with the Louvre Museum, Tadashi Yanai, chairman and CEO of Fast Retailing Co., operator of Uniqlo, said in a statement. "This is a longtime dream come true."
