Daniel Arsham has teased a new collaboration with Pokémon and Uniqlo UT. This project follows a sculpture prototype of a Dior Saddle bag that Arsham created last month.

Earlier today, Arsham took to Instagram a short animated clip of Pikachu encountering a large sculpture of itself. The teaser’s animation mirrors Pokémon’s earlier aesthetic style when the show first debuted, offering an intriguing contrast between Arsham’s modern concept and the retro-inspired visuals. According to the post, Arsham is “the first visual artist to be granted access to the Pokémon Archive” and has been working with the Pokémon company and its animators for the past year. Furthermore, Arsham notes that he intends on having his “work infiltrate the Pokémon universe.” The upcoming Uniqlo UT collaboration will be one capsule out of a lineup of other projects with Pokémon to be unveiled later on.

Daniel Arsham’s collaboration with Pokémon and Uniqlo UT will be releasing on April 24 on Uniqlo’s website, globally.
