Billie Eilish is teaming up with Japanese contemporary artist, Takashi Murakami, for an upcoming collaboration with Uniqlo. The limited-edition collection of graphic t-shirts is set to debut later this May.
Murakami’s most influential impact on the fashion world comes from the Multicolore monogram and Cherry Blossom collections he produced for Louis Vuitton during the Marc Jacobs-era back in the early 2000s. Meanwhile, the 18-year-old Grammy-winner’s personal style has become synonymous with oversized logo-centric ensembles by Gucci and Chanel. Eilish also launched a kids’ clothing line called Blohsh in 2019 that mimics the look that she’s become known for.
The duo has worked closely before on another creative endeavor when Murakami directed Eilish’s 2019 music video, “You Should See Me in a Crown,” and led the animated visuals.
This isn’t Murakami’s first partnership with Uniqlo. In 2018, the 58-year-old artist produced a series of graphic t-shirts and plush toy that feature his artwork with the Japanese-based retailer.
A spokeswoman for Uniqlo told WWD that more details about the collaboration will be released next week.
