Global Pop-Phenomenon Collabs with Takashi Murakami

Global apparel retailer UNIQLO announced the Billie Eilish by Takashi Murakami UT collection on May 25. This collaboration between global pop-phenomenon Billie Eilish and contemporary artist Takashi Murakami showcases the artistic perspectives of the two through graphics that were exclusively designed for UT.

Eilish became friends with Murakami after they messaged each other on Instagram. The pair jointly created the music video for Eilish’s song You Should See Me in a Crown, with Murakami drawing on Eilish’s ideas to animate it in his inimitable style. The video has attracted more than 68 million views on YouTube.

Highlights of this UT collection are graphics combining Eilish’s symbol, Blohsh, and Murakami’s iconic flowers. Designs also include collage of Eilish’s photos, a sketch taken from her music video and a UT-original Billie Eilish logo. Check out the online UT stores next week for T-shirts for men, women, children and also unisex caps.
