In the run up to this year’s spring/summer season, BEAMS sub-division BEAMS T has teamed up with esteemed Japanese illustrator Yu Nagaba and London’s very own Goodhood to release a seven T-shirt capsule collection aside a supportive body of twelve unique artworks. Renowned for previous endeavors with the likes of POPEYE magazine and Panasonic, Tokyo-based Yu Nagaba has successfully translated his charmingly minimal style into a selection of rich illustrations with an undertone of deep, cultural understanding. With each composition illustrating a different story and set of external influences, the full project is set to launch March 10 at Goodhood’s East London location, 5:30 p.m. local time.
“The BEAMS T ethos is all about acting as a catalyst to promote and introduce great talent and artists. Yu is one of most respected artists in Japan now and his drawing style is about simplicity and timeless design to showcase its own beauty. We are honored to team up with a great cultural lifestyle entity, Goodhood, to showcase his talent in the UK for the first time.” – Kentaro Kuwabara, BEAMS T director.
