Takashi Murakami Exhibit in Boston Sparks Sellout Sales

EXIT THROUGH THE GIFT SHOP: The artist Takashi Murakami is a one-man brand, thanks in part to collaborations with Louis Vuitton and fans like Karl Lagerfeld and Pharrell Williams.
His global reach has helped to fuel sales in the Murakami shop at the Museum of Fine Arts Boston where “Takashi Murakami: Lineage of Eccentrics” is a few weeks into its five-and-a-half month run, completed with the esteemed Japanese art historian Nobuo Tsuji. The duo selected the objects on display with the artist creating paintings and sculpture in direct response to such Japanese masterpieces from the MFA’s collection as Soga Shōhaku’s 35-foot-long “Dragon and Clouds” (1763), and the Heiji Scroll dating back to the second half of the 13th century.
Sales have been so brisk that the opening night party registered among the highest hourly sales that the MFA has ever had, according to a museum spokeswoman. The artist’s limited-edition prints sold out in a flash with one shopper flying in from Atlanta to buy “Korin: Dark Matter.” With a waiting list at 250 and growing, the prints have been reordered and a new shipment from Japan is expected later this year.
Other bestsellers include T-shirts and sweatshirts, tallying about 600 units in sales.

ED by Ellen DeGeneres’ Sellout Start

Within 24 hours of ED by Ellen DeGeneres, the lifestyle venture by DeGeneres and Christopher Burch, launch online at Edbyellen.com the site had more than 300,000 registered users and several sold out items including the Indigo Striped linens and pillows, white Cotton Bomber Jacket, Oversized Stripe Crew Neck Sweatshirt and Horsebit Cheese Knives Set.
The collection features women’s apparel, accessories and decorative home items, and other best sellers included the Original Dog Tee (DeGeneres loves animals) and embroidered bracelets with her signature “Love” and “Joy” sayings on them. The site got an ample social media boost from DeGeneres’ own Twitter feed (45.2 million followers) and celeb tweets from Madonna, Justin Bieber, Kim Kardashian, Pharrell Williams, Ashton Kutcher, Neil Patrick Harris, Britney Spears, Ariana Grande and Kerry Washington. DeGeneres announced plans for ED last year, partnering with Burch, who has vast experience launching lifestyle lines, not all of them ending happily. Perhaps DeGeneres will prove to be his E. Wonder.
