Now artist Takashi Murakami is joining the face mask wave, releasing a new collection of reusable face masks through his Tonari no Zingaro online souvenir shop. The artist previously released a collection of face masks featuring his signature smiley flower at the beginning of May. After quickly selling out, they’re now back by popular demand.
The new collection features cloth masks with a few different patterns, including Murakami’s famous Doubleface flower and Tonari no Smiley-kun in a range of colours – all priced at ¥5,700 per mask. The collection will go on sale today May 27 at 12noon JST. For now, unfortunately, the masks can only be shipped within Japan. The masks come in two different sizes: M (165mm by 180mm) and L (170mm by 185mm).
The masks are in hot demand, so if you’re able to purchase masks within Japan you’ll want to be ready to click through the shop right at 12noon sharp. Shop at the online store here.
