After Latin Grammy Award Winner J Balvin enlisted Takashi Murakami as the artwork designer for his new album, the duo have joined forces once again for a bright range of T-shirts and hoodies. Murakami’s iconic flower motif emblazons the garments across a purple, white and black color palette. Like the smiling-flower design used for Colores, the flowers in the capsule feature unique lightning bolts as eyes.

J Balvin’s Colores album includes songs like “Rojo,” “Amarillo” and “Azul” — all corresponding to different colors. Staying true to the capsule’s color scheme, the songs “Morado” and “Blanco” are incorporated into the collection. Printed on purple and white T-shirts in a spray painted font, the words are accompanied by Murakami’s flowers in their respective colors. Elsewhere, hoodies sport the flower motif in varying sizes on the fronts and backs, while lightning bolts adorn the sleeves.

Take a closer look at the collaborative capsule above. The collection is available now at in-store JOYCE locations in Hong Kong.

For more collaborative drops, Seoul-based imprint thisisneverthat has unveiled a Casio G-Shock DW-5600 watch along with a commemorative T-shirt.
