Global apparel retailer Uniqlo has announced that it will launch the Billie Eilish x Takashi Murakami UT t-shirt collection later this month, starting with the online store.
Murakami and Eilish worked together previously when Murakami directed Eilish’s 2019 music video for “You Should See Me in a Crown.” Murakami is known for multiple forms of art, including traditional Japanese paintings, sculptures and film. The contemporary artist works with both fine arts media and commercial media. His art has been featured on multiple consumer product items.
Eilish, 18, has ventured into the fashion sector multiple times, having previously designed her own merchandise line called “blohsh” as well as having designed a sustainable clothing line with H&M. She also has worked with the likes of Bershka, Freak City and Urban Outfitters on collaborative clothing collections.
Highlights of this UT collection are graphics combining Eilish’s symbol, Blohsh and Murakami’s iconic flowers. Designs also include a collage of Eilish’s photos, a sketch taken from her music video and a UT-original Billie Eilish logo.
The collection will launch online May 25.
