Takashi Murakami Loves Drake
The signature OVO owl logo got a cute AF version designed by the one and only Takashi Murakami.
The signature OVO owl logo got a cute AF version designed by the one and only Takashi Murakami (the godfather of all things kawaii). Both he and Nicholas Carino of October’s Very Own took to their Instagram accounts to share the reimagined logo.
The Japanese artist’s post read, “I love this!!! @champagnepapi I am so glad that we are able to become friends even though we are across the world!! Thank you!!!” Fans from all over the globe were squealing about the possibility of this being a prelude to a bigger capsule collection.
The modifications ot the iconic logo included a bolder black outline with one wing painted yellow, one leg painted bright blue and the owl head being replaced with Takashi’s flower head. Is this a proven sign of a potential collaboration or is it just Takashi doodling to celebrate his new friendship with Drake?
If a collaboration does drop between the artist and clothing label, it would make for a busy year for both parties, with Takashi Murakami exhibiting alongside Virgil Abloh and Drake working on new music with Kanye West. We’re excited to see what the outcome of the logo is, and OVO could always get Murakami to design new sandals! (He killed it with turning the YEEZY BOOST 350 V2 into sandals.)
