Doraemon is a old school Japanese manga/anime which is considered one of Japan’s top cultural icons. The manga/anime talks about a cat from the future named Doraemon that travels back in time to help a schoolboy, Nobita Nobi. The blog We Love Paris was recently at the mens fashion week in Paris. They had a chance to snap a picture of a upcoming collaboration between Comme des Garcons and Doraemon. In the picture, we see the character Nobita Nobi. Other than this t-shirt, no word yet on what items will be coming out from this project.
