Fellow Japan ex-pat, Paul from Tokyo Art Beat (TAB) shot us an email to let us know about their new t-shirts.
Each year, TAB releases a collection of exclusive, limited-edition shirts. The designs are donated by both famous and up-and-coming international designers and artists living in Tokyo to share their love of this exciting city. Tokyo Art Beat is run by a non-profit organization so the proceeds of the sale are used to support our team of volunteers and paid staff.
They said that they are releasing 2 new tees every 2 months now. This year’s first 2 designs are by a Japanese designer, Ko-zou and his tattoo-style graphics and the second by Japanese illustrator (and semi-cult indies band: Kiiiiiiii’s singer) Tada Reiko.
¥4000 is a little pricey for a t-shirt but they are limited edition t-shirts by famous designers and there is not much chance of bumping into someone wearing the same top on a night out. The photo below was taken in a ’70s style love hotel.
