The collection, which is currently available to preview on the Japanese retailer’s site, will feature a variety of T-shirts that offer Eilish’s name, face and trademark shrugging figure. Many of these designs also incorporate Takashi’s signature smiling flower designs. Adult-sized T-shirts will retail for $14.90 and children’s sizes are $9.90, making the price point friendly for Eilish fans of all ages.

Murakami has become hugely popular around the globe thanks to his iconic eye-catching designs and high-profile projects with fashion brands like Louis Vuitton and VANS. The artist, who also works in animation and film, has teamed up with a variety of musicians as well, including Kanye West, Kid Cudi and Pharrell Williams. In April 2019, Murakami directed the music video for Eilish’s “you should see me in a crown”, which transformed the pop icon into an anime character. The two collaborated on a subsequent merch line, as well as on a cover shoot for the biannual art and fashion-focused publication Garage Magazine.

“I think everything about her voice is simply beautiful,” Murakami told Garage. “She is making that nebulous, wistful feeling of adolescence that I myself once experienced into wonderful works!”

Eilish is no stranger to the fashion world. In January, she unveiled a sustainable clothing line at H&M, while she has also created capsule collections for Urban Outfitters, Bershka and the LA-based label Freak City.

Most recently, Eilish announced a limited podcast series with her father, actor Patrick O’Connell, on Apple Music’s Beats 1. The six-episode me & dad Radio, which premiered 9 May, features a variety of handpicked music from Eilish and her father plus plenty of conversation about the tunes that they love.
