UNIQLO Launches Billie Eilish x Takashi Murakami T-shirt Collection
UNIQLO has launched a new collection of T-shirts from Billie Eilish & designer Takashi Murakami. The designs from the collection combine unique motifs from both individuals and include collaboration logos originally designed for UT. The Billie Eilish x Takashi Murakami UT collection launched today US Memorial Day May 25 and promptly sold-out online. The collection sold-out quickly, before I had even finished my morning coffee!
UNIQLO, via their website, states they will restock the limited edition Billie Eilish x Takashi Murakami T-shirt Collection on the UNIQLO website and in select few in-store locations (when they are open.) Per a message on their website, UNIQLO says:
Please check back tomorrow 5/26 mid morning ET for restock of select styles
If you’re interested in this one, get online early May 26, tomorrow (say 6 am to 7 am PT, and after 9:30 am ET) to see if the collection has been restocked on UNIQLO.com. The collaboration between global pop-phenomenon Billie Eilish and contemporary artist Takashi Murakami showcases the artistic perspectives of the two through graphics that were exclusively designed for UT. Pricing for the collection ranges from US $14.90 for an adult T-shirt to $9.90 US for a Kids T-shirt.
Billie Eilish and Takashi Murakami a Collaboration Born on Social Media
So how did these two artists meet? How do all cool people meet during the COVID-19 Pandemic via Social Media.Eilish became friends with Murakami after they messaged each other on Instagram. The pair jointly created the music video for Eilish’s song You Should See Me in a Crown, with Murakami drawing on Eilish’s ideas to animate it in his inimitable style. The video has attracted more than 68 million views on YouTube.
