To commemorate Wes Anderson‘s recent Isle of Dogs film, UNDERCOVER is joining forces with Akira creator Katsuhiro Otomo for an exclusive shirt. UNDERCOVER founder Jun Takahashi actually contributed voice work to the film, so the partnership is more aligned than not. A pair of tees center around Otomo’s recognizable art style, with an illustrative reimagining of the film’s characters featured on the front of a black or white shirt, while UNDERCOVER branding appears on the rear.

The size M-only shirts launch on May 25 as a limited edition gift for customers who spend ¥50,000 JPY or more (approximately $450 USD) at UNDERCOVER’s Roppongi Hills outpost. Most recently, imagery surfaced of UNDERCOVER’s collaborative Nike Epic React sneakers.

ウェス・アンダーソン監督による映画『犬ヶ島』の公開を記念して、本作の世界観をイメージした大友克洋先生のイラストとアンダーカバーのロゴが入ったTシャツを制作しました。非売品となりますが、公開日である5月25日(金)から、UNDERCOVER六本木ヒルズ店限定で、50,000円以上お買い物の方先着でこちらのTシャツ(白か黒のMサイズ)をプレゼント致します。(サイズは選べません。Tシャツは無くなり次第終了です)高橋盾も本作の吹き替えに参加しております。映画の方もぜひご覧ください。 To celebrate the release of Wes Anderson’s "Isle of Dogs”, we made a special t-shirt of the illustration of artist Katsuhiro Otomo, showing his unique take on this movie and our UNDERCOVER logo. On May 25th (Fri) the t-shirt will be available as a gift for those spending ¥50,000 or more at UNDERCOVER Roppongi Hills. The campaign ends when the last t-shirt is given out (white or black size M only). The voice of Jun Takahashi also features in the movie, please go check it out! #犬ヶ島 #Isleofdogs #UNDERCOVER #アンダーカバー @foxsearchlight_jp
