Takashi Murakami’s production company KaiKai Kiki will be retailing this plush ball at Colette. If those flowers look familiar, that’s because they are. Murakami adorned Louis Vuitton bags with them a few years ago.

The ball will retail in three sizes 25cm, 40cm, and 60cm. Murakami shot to fame in the art world for many reasons, one being his interesting spin on Warhol’s attempt to turn everyday objects into art. Murakami’s thing is to turn art into everyday objects, and so far he has succeeded with bags, figurines and now plush toys.
