This boba shirt by Chinese clothing brand Urb aspires to resemble a cup of milky bubble tea, with little balled-up kitties as the tapioca balls. The design is unique because it is both inspired by a popular Asian beverage, as well as the much-loved pets that are supposed to bring good luck in Chinese culture.
Your body is the cup—the shirt is color blocked to distinguish the milk tea. From afar, you see black tapioca balls, but up close, they are actually curly-posed cats. To make it more overt, the designers have placed an actual drawing of a full boba cup on the left hand side of the shirt.
We often see food-mimicking sweaters or animal-printed shirts on the market, but this This animal-beverage hybrid design is something different.
