Editor’s Notes: Uniqlo UT’s new collaboration between Takashi Murakami and Billie Eilish comprises 12 T-shirts, including four children’s options.
It’s not the first time Murakami and Eilish have worked together either — the Japanese pop artist directed Eilish’s insect-riddled video for “You Should See Me In A Crown.” They then teamed up for a limited range of merch. The designs for their Uniqlo collab were inspired by the video.
This collaboration follows on from recent UNIQLO UT projects that connect the Japanese brand to various facets of pop culture. These include artwork from Dragonball Z, Daniel Arsham’s disintegrating Pokemon designs, and a Sailor Moon capsule.
