Here’s a collaboration to excite fans of both Japanese art and anime. Doraemon, the insanely popular “robot cat from the future” has been reimagined by famed artist Takashi Murakami in a series of t-shirts and a plush toy for Uniqlo’s UT brand.
Doraemon Gets the Murakami Treatment for UT
Murakami combined Doraemon and other characters from the manga and anime series with his iconic daisy print for an explosion of color. There are t-shirts for adults and children with prints of Doraemon’s outline, the “Dokodemo door,” the Doraemon logo, and Doraemon flying with his “takecopter.” The collection includes all-over prints, front prints, pocket prints, and one-point embroidery styles.
Also a part of the collaboration is a plush Doraemon toy, with the lovable character covered in Murakami’s custom daisy print. The 24-cm-tall toy is soft and huggable, making it the perfect gift for children and a fun conversation piece for adults.
The Murakami Doraemon collection will be available from late May, but it’s sure to go quickly so be sure to get your order in soon! For other cool collaborations click here.
