takashi murakami + mamoru hosoda: superflat first love.

I love Murakami. I love Anime. I love brightly coloured flower bombs and anything that reminds me of Astro Boy. So basically this video had me at hello.

Murakami’s collaboration with Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton are one of the most lauded (and profitable) team ups in fashion history. Continuing in the vein of “Superflat Monogram”, Murakami’s latest Vuitton-athon “Superflat First Love” celebrates his six years working with the house.

Directed by Anime-master Mamoru Hosoda, it delivers everything you want it to: giant teddy bear animal things, space flight, giggling open-mouth Anime girls, and a time portal located inside a LV trunk. Yeah, it’s basically one big advertisement for Vuitton, and I’d rather see what these two could create without having to tie it back into that brand, but the film is so cute that I can’t resist it.
