Japan’s TAGS WKGPTY and the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam have teamed up for a special capsule collection championing Vincent Van Gogh‘s hand-written letters.

The Van Gogh Museum houses 200 paintings, 500 drawings, and 750 written documents which have served as inspiration for this collection. It comprises T-shirts, shirts, trousers, bags, a badge, and a set of pencils, the latter nodding to Van Gogh’s medium, with all featuring different scripts.

For example, the Palette T-shirt in white incorporates a passage from Van Gogh’s 1882 piece The Hague, and places this writing alongside a small doodled bird. The Erase T-shirt combines dual branding on the front with a passage from Arles, which is also a part of the South of France where Van Gogh lived for a year.

The entire collection can be seen in the gallery above, and purchased from TAGS WKGPTY’s website as well as stores such as United Arrows in Japan now.

In other news, UNIQLO has announced a UT collaboration with Billie Eilish and Takashi Murakami.
