Takashi Murakami- Panda Geant

The character Panda Geant first appeared in 2003 soon after Marc Jacobs, then the creative director at Louis Vuitton, invited Murakami to reinvigorate the company’s accessories line. Murakami did so by interspersing the classic LV monogram with his trademark punchy flowers and “jellyfish eyes,” to a phenomenal public response.  The Panda has also been used in short anime films Superflat Monogram and Superflat First Love as “spirit residents of the other-dimensional monogram multicoloured world” who “tour through time and space according to Takashi Murakami.  I like how the character is multi colored and how Takashi used his art work as a character in a film.
