BLACKPINK is no stranger to making waves and paving the way for other Kpop acts in unknown territories, but this time they’re pushing the boundaries! The BP girls are set to splash in contemporary art, joining forces with graphic designer and artist Takashi Murakami. This iconic pair is set to drop a collaboration capsule to celebrate the group’s contract renewal.
You read that right! YG Entertainment (BLACKPINK’s label) recently confirmed the girl group will continue doing their activities as a quartet on December 6th. As if that wasn’t enough, YG Plus later dropped the bombshell about the BLACKPINK x Takashi Murakami collab.
But what’s the buzz all about? Well, this collab introduces “Pandakashi” a character that mixes up the best BLACKPINK bits with Takashi’s sense of art. The idea of it all is to put together art and music to create something extraordinary!
The capsule collection will include 19 pieces, with items going from $15 to $300 for Blinks (that’s the name BLACKPINK fans have) to choose from. To add to the hype, special weekend activations are scheduled for December 9th and 10th at the Alchemist Miami and the NTWRK Los Angeles store.
So, what are you waiting for, Blinks? The “Lovesick Girls” and Takashi have just created the perfect cultural crossover. This collab is all about that fusion of Kpop and contemporary art, a milestone that bridges gaps with the power of creativity and style!
Let us know your thoughts on this capsule in the comments below, and stay tuned for updates on a possible music comeback from BLACKPINK.
