among the usual floats in the macy’s thanksgiving day parade were takashi murakami’s kaikai & kiki characters. the japanese designer specially created the giant floating balloons and rode along with them dressed in a green flower costume. macy’s began their collaboration with murakami in 2008, but it wasn’t till this year that he was free to work on the floats. the floats were built in a few months in the macy’s parade workshops and tested thoroughly. murakami didn’t see the final designs until this past wedensday.
