Brand: Billionaire Boys Club, Takashi Murakami
Season: Spring 2017
Key Pieces: Grey long-sleeve crewneck, white short-sleeve tee.
Editor’s Notes: For the second time ever, Takashi Murakami has joined with BBC for a special project. The capsule consists of short-sleeve T-shirts and a crewneck sweatshirt, showcasing artwork from Murakami’s “Ensō” series. Ensō, meaning circle, is a famous motif found in Zen painting, symbolizing emptiness, unity and infinity in Zen Buddhism. The collection thus introduces BBC’s iconic helmet within the Ensō, mirroring the spray paint technique.
The collaboration will be available exclusively at Billionaire Boys Club’s NYC flagship and web store on Saturday, March 25. Doors open at 12 p.m. EST. The first 100 customers to purchase a collaborative item at the New York store will receive a complimentary mini flower plush keychain.
