UNIQLO Collabos with #UTxKAWSxSESAMESTREET & Murakami x Doraemon UT
Unleashed on May 25th was the beloved "Doraemon" donning the skin designed by Takashi Murakami and debut as a collection from UNIQLO, including this plush collectible that has no doubt entered folks' collection as have KAWS x "Peanuts" UNIQLO collabo (resulting in TWO x Plush: OG White and Black), methinks!
Are you one of those folks? :)

Uniqlo did an amazing UT Murakami collaboration project, inspired by our childhood memories of a Japanese manga series “Doraemon”. • Both Fujiko F. Fujio and Takashi Murakami is such an inspirational artist for me • @uniqloindonesia gonna release this Plush Toy Doraemon x Takashi Murakami’s in their store at 25th May 2018 • #uniqloindonesia #UT2018 #doraemonUT
Regardless "collector" or "scalper", having a recognisable character in a new skin-design is no longer a "surprise" in this day and age, but rather the official license to be able to adapt/redesign an existing character, that brings the "fun"!
Case in point is the upcoming and continued collaboration with KAWS by UNIQLO, with the "Sesame Street"! Besides the obvious apparel release, no doubt plush toys await around the corner? ... if "they" do, will YOU be getting them too? :)
