Takashi Murakami and Billionaire Boys Club have joined forces for a capsule collection.
Billionaire Boys Club has been teasing a collaboration with Japanese artist Takashi Murakami since last week, and now official images of their new collection has been released.
This upcoming release is the second time Murakami has teamed up with Pharrell’s legendary label. Consisting of three tees, in black, white and grey, and a sweatshirt, the collection is decorated with work from Murakami’s “Ensō” series.
Billionaire Boys Club released a statement on the collaboration. “Ensō, which means circle, is a famous motif found in Zen painting. It symbolizes emptiness, unity, and infinity in Zen Buddhism. Traditionally, the circular motif is traced with a skillful, singular brush stroke. Murakami’s execution of the circular motif is created using spray paint, which is then digitized and silkscreened over his signature artwork of flowers and skulls. The capsule introduces BBC’s iconic helmet within the Ensō, mirroring the spray paint technique. The capsule was produced on BBC’s custom tee and sweater blanks, made in the USA and Canada, respectively.”
Stay tuned for the collaboration to release both online and in-store on March 25th. Take a look at the Takashi Murakami x Billionaire Boys Club collection below and let us know what you think!
