Billie Eilish x Takashi Murakami Collaborate Once Again For UNIQLO UT Fashion Collection
Billie Eilish and Takashi Murakami have joined hands once again to drop a new clothing collection in UNIQLO’s graphic T-shirt brand UT.
Billie made her debut when she was 13, and just five years later, her music is spearheading the charts and industry. Back in January this year, at 18-years-old, Billie won five Grammy Awards and hailed as the youngest person to win all four of the main Grammy categoriesーBest New Artist, Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Album of the Year. She is also only the second person to win all four in the same year.
The collection will be available online from May 25, 2020 and in stores from May 29, 2020 as they reopen.
UNIQLO USA released a trailer for the collection on their official YouTube channel which you can watch below. The colourful video combines Billie’s iconic Blohsh character with Murakami’s flowers.

Billie and Murakami’s friendship started when they sent each other messages on Instagram. Billie performed at Summer Sonic in Japan in 2018. During her time in the country, she met with Murakami and together they completed an animated music video for her hit track you should see me in a crown which was released last April.
