Takashi Murakami is one of Japan’s most well-known living artists. His cartoon-like characters and grinning daisies are immediately recognizable by millions around the world, and they have graced products from cookware and cushions to face masks and puzzles.
After a huge gold statue of his daisy people at Roppongi Hills last year, Murakami is continuing his collaboration with the complex. A pop-up café has opened offering flower-themed foods and drinks, a suite at the Grand Hyatt Tokyo has been decked out in Murakami’s art, and now the artist has collaborated with a dozen hot brands on a series of sought-after products.
Release dates for the items have been staggered, but some are already in stores now. Beams and T&C Surf have designed t-shirts, Classics the Small Luxury did handkerchiefs, Hanway has launched possibly the most adorable umbrellas ever, and Soph created some very cool “mods” coats. Other products include socks, tote bags, phone cases, and more.
All merchandise is exclusive to Roppongi Hills stores and is produced in only limited quantities. Many items are expected to sell out quickly, so don’t wait to score your favorites!
