Background of the Collaboration

This special collaboration project commenced in conjunction with Takashi Murakami’s solo exhibition “Takashi Murakami: Mononoke Kyoto” at the Kyocera Museum of Art in Kyoto. The first collaboration accessories, released in May 2020, sold out immediately. Due to continuous requests for a re-release over the past four years, the second series is being launched alongside the exhibition.

“Takashi Murakami: Mononoke Kyoto” is Murakami’s first large-scale solo exhibition in Japan in eight years since 2015. We are honored to reintroduce the collaborative accessories with Murakami during this special occasion. We hope our customers will enjoy this exciting news.
