Exclusively designed for Nanban by amazing illustrator Philip Giordano and carefully made with supersoft ring-spun cotton, this T-shirt is both a new item belonging to the East meets West series and a gracious and cheerful homage to Japanese culture, as only a designer who lives partly in Italy and partly in Japan can epitomize so well.
This subject, in particular, represents the Japanese raccoon dog, better known as tanuki, a creature that populates many Japanese legends and who is reputed to be mischievous and jolly, a master of disguise and shapeshifting, but somewhat gullible and absentminded.
Reading a book underneath a beautifully shaped Japanese pine tree while hearing a golden birdie whispering in his ear, this tanuki is certainly thinking about the next trick he is going to play on someone.
Another playful and comfy way to bring a bit of Japan around.
Soft, simple and full of life: a wonderful T-shirt for every children!
