【NEWS】Yurina Okada×JILL STUART Collaboration “W/J” Announcement
Yurina Okada, one of biscuit gallery’s represented artists, will be participating in a collaborative project with fashion designer brand JILL STUART, “W/J (With Jill Stuart)”.
Okada will also be participating in the joint production of merchandise for the “Art Collaboration” exhibition.
A total of five types of items, including T-shirts, sweatshirts, hoodies, totes, and tulle bags printed with Okada’s artwork, will be available at the WHAT CAFE pop-up from November 10 (Fri) and at JILL STUART stores nationwide and on the official online site from November 15 (Wed).
This project will also feature product collaborations with artists and an exhibition fusing art and apparel in collaboration with WHAT CAFE, an art gallery café in Tennozu operated by Terada Warehouse.
Works by 19 young artists who reinterpret JILL STUART’s seasonal concept will be exhibited and sold, led by yutaokuda and Yurina Okada, who have jointly developed original art items.
Original drawings of the exhibition plans and art items created for the collaboration will be on display and for sale, allowing visitors to experience a new exhibition space where art and apparel are fused together.
WHAT CAFE, where the exhibition will be held, will offer a special menu during the exhibition period: “Blooming sweets plate,” a plate of sweets inspired by JILL STUART’s seasonal concept. Those who order the sweets plate will receive an artist sticker by either yutaokuda or Yurina Okada as a special gift with purchase.
*The artist stickers will be discontinued as soon as the number of the stickers reaches the allotted number to be distributed.
