British racecar driver Lewis Hamilton and Japanese artist Takashi Murakami have teamed up once again to release the second collection for Hamilton’s clothing brand, +44. The collection, named “The Vegas Trip,” draws inspiration from the upcoming 2023 Las Vegas Grand Prix in Formula 1.
The collection features an array of 27 distinctive pieces, all influenced by the vibrant aesthetic of Vegas. Murakami’s colorful graphic designs showcase the interplay between fashion and racing. Among the items are hoodies, t-shirts, long sleeves, and accessories. Additionally, Murakami’s iconic character, Mr. DOB, is prominently featured alongside Hamilton’s initials, “LH,” in the designs.
“It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of Murakami’s work and technique,” said Hamilton about the collaboration. “He’s a legendary artist, and having the opportunity to work with him for a second time is a dream.”
Murakami expressed his enthusiasm, recalling how he had the chance to witness Hamilton’s race at the Suzuka Circuit in Japan last year. The experience reignited his passion for Formula 1, which he had developed as a university student. He has since followed the F1 Grand Prix regularly.
The +44 drop will be available for purchase from November 15 to 19 at a pop-up store in the Wynn Las Vegas. Additionally, the collection will be offered online through the official +44 website.
