After teaming up on limited hand-printed T-shirts this past fall for ComplexCon, Japanese contemporary artist Takashi Murakami now reveals that another upcoming collaboration with Virgil Abloh is in the works.

Murakami took to Instagram to report that Abloh visited his studio, where the two reportedly discussed future plans and working on another series of screen-printed T-shirts. With Virgil holding one design, the tees are essentially defined by their incorporation of hand-printed details that infuses Murakami’s signature style with OFF-WHITE‘s logo.

Details on its availability have not been revealed yet, but expect to see its official unveiling at London’s Gagosian Gallery starting Tuesday, February 20.
