Takashi Murakami Collaborates with OFF-WHITE on an Adorable Capsule

Following Virgil Abloh and Takashi Murakami's successful collaboration during the 'PAY PER VIEW' exhibit that offered a contemporary commentary on consumer behavior, the artist and the designer release a joint effort of adorably illustrated tote bags. The designs boast the recognizable style of the Japanese artist with OFF-WHITE's signature construction logo.

The fashion-forward accessories are offered in multiple colors on a premium leather silhouette. The name for the illustrated tote bag capsule is undoubtedly interesting. 'FUTURE HISTORY' cleverly brings a connection between an obsolete time and what is yet to come. The consumer (or better yet — the one that constitutes the present) is the bridge between the two temporal spheres. Boasting direct references to this motif with OFF-WHITE-style "FUTURE" and "history" typography, the illustrated tote bags combine fashion and philosophy.
