Korea’s most sought-after model, power influencer, and fashion entrepreneur Irene Kim has joined forces with TikTok Korea for its first-ever capsule collection: TikTok Friends x Ireneisgood Label.

The limited-edition collection is in collaboration with the short-form video platform’s new characters, TikTok Friends, and was launched on Sept. 24 along with its #GoodFriendChallenge.

Designed by Irene and inspired by TikTok Friends’ focus on virtual creators, the 25-piece line is a clever blend of radiant colors incorporating Ireneisgood motifs like rainbows and unicorns, and the TikTok Friends’ characters. There are also special-edition characters like Slo, a “friendly bear” who wears Ireneisgood’s signature “Good for You” hoodie.
