#FR2梅 × isayamax

#FR2梅 × isayamax / 2024.1.20sat , 21sun コラボ商品リリース&作品展を開催しました。

The collaboration product between #FR2 Ume and Isayamax has been released, and we also held an exhibition of the artworks.




I reunited with a high school classmate after more than 20 years, and this encounter led to a connection with #FR2. Things progressed smoothly, and three months later, we were able to organize a collaboration event at #FR2 Ume! I created original artwork specifically for this event, which was then featured in the apparel collection, resulting in an incredibly cute lineup!

T-shirts: ¥8,800 (tax included), Sweatshirts: ¥17,600 (tax included), Caps: ¥7,700 (tax included), Stickers: ¥2,200 (tax included)

リリースに併せて1月20日(土)、21日(日)の2日間、原宿 #FR2梅 向かいの #FR2Gallery にてこちらも描き下ろしの原画作品の展示も行いました。

To coincide with the product release, we held an exhibition of my original artworks on January 20th (Saturday) and 21st (Sunday) at #FR2Gallery, located across from #FR2 Ume in Harajuku.

たった2日間のイベントでも、ここまで装飾してくださる徹底したブランド力に感服です。I was deeply impressed by the brand’s commitment to thoroughly decorating the space, even for a two-day event.


Located right in the heart of the 90s Ura-Harajuku scene, “#FR2 Ume” now occupies the spot where the Ura-Hara brand “HECTIC” once stood, across the street from where the iconic “NOWHERE” shop by NIGO and Jun Takahashi was located. The “#FR2Gallery” is right across from it. For someone who spent their youth in the 90s, it’s incredibly exciting. On the second floor, you’ll also find “6%DOKIDOKI,” another central figure of the 90s “Harajuku Decora” culture.


I’m impressed by the cute and varied displays in the store. It’s truly moving.


All the original artworks were sold on a first-come, first-served basis, and they sold out within 3 hours of opening. The apparel also sold nearly all out over the course of the 2 days, showing how popular the event was. I once again realized the incredible power of the “#FR2” brand.


Finally, what left a lasting impression on me this time was how stylish and cool all the employees and staff were, as well as their bright and positive attitude. They all clearly respected President Ishikawa, and being surrounded by such a positive atmosphere throughout was incredibly comfortable and pleasant! To everyone who visited and to all involved, thank you for such a rich and valuable experience over these two days!


On a side note, Bruno Mars was in Japan for his tour during the same period, and it seems he also visited Harajuku at some point, just missing each other. I was surprised to see a video on Bruno’s Instagram Reels the day after my exhibition ended.
