It's official. Billie Eilish and Takashi Murakami are teaming up for a fashion collection comprising T-shirts.
The American singer and Japanese artist reportedly drew on their respective artistic perspectives and creative talents to create a new collection of T-shirts for Uniqlo. This was initially revealed on Instagram, with the stylised teaser highlighting a design decorated with iconic Murakami motifs.
It shows a manga-style sculpture entirely dressed in white and wearing a T-shirt with the inscription "Billie Eilish" in lettering – Murakami style.
The initial post revealed that it will be christened the Billie Eilish x Murakami UT. Later reports then revealed that the T-shirts will rework iconography from Eilish’s debut album and merchandise, while incorporating Murakami manga-style flowers.
A collage of Eilish’s photos, as well as sketches taken from her music videos, are also expected to be included.
This is not the first time that Billie Eilish and Takashi Murakami have teamed up on a creative project (a common practice for brands and celebritities). In 2019, the visual artist directed the award-winning singer's You Should See Me In A Crown music video.
