Among fresh t-shirts, books and limited edition prints, the latest Takashi Murakami offering is a series of adorable plush doll backpacks. The accessory collection takes cues from the Kaikai and Kiki characters with "a special DOB PANDA iteration." The designs prove to be incredibly endearing and perfect for children or those young at heart.

As Takashi Murakami is one of the most celebrated and active artists today, his work has become progressively recognizable. The new offerings, as well as the plush doll backpack capsule, is available at the artist's bar-café in Tokyo, Japan.

Bar Zingaro is a classic example of convergence and hybridization as the business fuses the celebrated artistic vision of Takashi Murakami, the menu offerings of both bar and cafe, as well as adorable plush-doll backpacks and other stylish souvenirs.
