Takashi Murakami + Post Malone come together for Twelve Carat Toothache merch collection

Post Malone and Takashi Murakami have come together for a limited-edition capsule TMKK x Post Malone, in celebration of Post Malone’s fourth studio album, “Twelve Carat Toothache.”

The TMKK x Post Malone collection features a cool, avant-garde take on the iconic artist’s signature flowers, including custom-designed apparel and accessories including tees, hoodies, trucker hats, and drinking items such as mugs and beer koozies. Donning a simple black and white palette with vibrant blue, green, and yellow pops – the duo’s capsule aesthetic is whimsical and edgy – a far cry from the usual music merch. One such design features Post Malone’s diamond grill amid butterflies – a nod to his album cover.

 Even though Post Malone’s music can be moody and melancholic, a mirror of his true self, some would say…underneath it all – he’s got such an imaginative and colorful aesthetic. My inspiration for the capsule came entirely from him. From the start, he clearly understood what he wanted from both the art and design…

Murakami

Murakami is famous for his collaborations with other key players in the entertainment industry, like Pharrell Williams, Billie Eilish, and Drake, and for working with high-end fashion houses like Louis Vuitton and iconic brands like Vans and Supreme. Murakami has pushed the bounds of his profession, merging art with commerce, successfully blurring the line between “high and low arts.” Post Malone is one of the hottest musicians on the planet. His fourth studio album, “Twelve Carat Toothache,” released this summer, debuted at number two on the US Billboard 200; its tracks earned 128 million on-demand streams. The album is Post Malone’s fourth top-five album in the US.

The capsule is also available in exclusive colorways at NTWRK’s new pop-up shop custom-designed for the TMKK x Post Malone capsule (443 N Fairfax Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90036) until Sunday 20th November.
