Takashi Murakami‘s unique designs that were on display at “Create Your Own Original Doraemon” in 2017 will be featured alongside original artwork from fellow countryman Fujiko F. Fujio’s beloved Doraemon manga thanks to a collaboration with Uniqlo UT. The collection will incorporate 15 items in total including men’s and kids’ T-shirts and an all-over print plush.
The famous dorayaki-eating Doraemon can be seen in the video preview for the collection below. Uniqlo USA has announced via its Instagram that the collection will be available first exclusively at the Fifth Avenue flagship store in New York City on April 26. A global release is set to follow both online and in-store in late May. Let us know if you’ll be adding this to your plush collection from Uniqlo. Recently, Uniqlo UT launched a capsule celebrating famed ramen shops around the world. Last year, Packer, atmos and Reebok collabed on a Doraemon Instapump.
The adorable characters, Doraemon & Nobita, from @takashipom's animated series come to life in our latest #UniqloUT collection — launching exclusively at our 5th Avenue location on April 26th, and select stores & online in May.
