The notoriously weird and Grammy-award winning pop star Billie Eilish has created a limited-edition t-shirt line with the artist Takashi Murakami in collaboration with Uniqlo, the Japanese retailer that specializes in stylish basics and essentials.
On May 14, 2020 the company announced it was launching the line that will showcase both artists’ unique styles and sensibilities through elevated graphic t-shirts that were exclusively designed for Uniqlo.
The announcement came with a teaser video that features an anime character dressed in joggers, high top sneakers and a t-shirt. You can check out the video on the Uniqlo website here or see the products below. As you’d expect from a t-shirt line from Billie Elish, the t-shirts are oversized. Looser fits are definitely on-trend right now, and the t-shirts feature a variety of different artistic styles.
The clothing line officially launched on May 25th, and we’ve included some of our favorite picks below. Move fast if you’re interested, as we’re expecting many of these items to sell out soon.
Editor’s Note: Within 24 hours, many of these Billie Eilish t-shirts are already sold out. Per Uniqlo, fans can expect a restock on Friday, May 29.

Billie Eilish x Uniqlo x Murakami, the Collaboration We Didn’t Know We Needed…
Each of the artists is looking to provide another dimension to their work, another way to experience it and another channel for reaching audiences. This collaboration is filled with unique vision as two global icons fuse their creative visions together.
Takashi Murakami is a world-renowned artist with exhibitions at major art institutions around the globe as well as luxury and streetwear fashion brands with her creative stamp on them. She directed Eilish’s 2019 music video “you should see me in a crown.”
Billie Eilish released her double-platinum album “WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP WHERE DO WE GO” in March of 2019 and has since launched to the top of the music world, winning multiple Grammy’s including song and record of the year. She produces her music with her fellow Grammy-award winning brother FINNEAS, the two live in Highland Park, Los Angeles.
