Earlier this month, Takashi Murakami linked up with PORTER for a jointly-created capsule collection. Infused with the signature characteristics of both Murakami and PORTER, that run served up new Tanker bags with iconic “Flower” graphic motifs and military green nylon tones. Now, the beloved Japanese artist is choosing to collaborate with sustainable flip flip brand TIDAL New York on a new sandal selection.

Produced for Los Angeles contemporary art museum The Broad, Murakami and TIDAL New York’s new collaborative effort revolves around a vibrant, creatively-designed take on TIDAL New York’s standard flip-flop silhouette. Specifically, this pair features an exceptionally supportive and strong sole with a compilation of Murakami illustrations and characters adorning the top.

“I’m just doing the same as I’ve been doing since day one. Ever since my early 30s, I’ve still selling small, limited art pieces and merchandise products, all the same. So, I feel like I haven’t really changed,” Murakami recently told us, opening up for a profile in the “Mania” issue of our magazine.

You can take a look at Takashi Murakami and TIDAL New York’s new flip-flop collaboration for The Broad above. A pair of these flip-flops will set you back $30 USD, and you can purchase your own at The Broad in Los Angeles and the official Broad website.
