The Art Basel-Exclusive No Sesso x Bephie Shirts Are an Homage to Black Women

Crafted to honor the OG streetwear originators.


By //Fashion

Multi-talented stylist and creative director Elizabeth Birkett Gibbs has released a special-edition collaborative T-shirt with Pierre, designer of Los Angeles based fashion house No Sesso.

In the past, Gibbs has worked with Nike, Carharrt WIP and ASICS. Her husband is none other than UNION LOS ANGELES‘ Chris Gibbs. The collaboration serves as a reminder that streetwear is rooted in the origins of hip-hop which stems directly from African-American culture. “[It's an] homage to black women, their style and their names,” shared No Sesso in an Instagram post.

Detailing on the T-shirts include sketched images of black women with an array of hairstyles ranging from blunt bobs to braided styles. The immense detail on the T-shirts also features nameplate earrings and large hip-hop era frames. Screenprinted in bold font on the backs of the shirts are the names Shaniqwa, LaTasha, LaKeisha, LaTanya and Tamika. The colorways available are pink, baby blue and yellow.

Cop the collaborative T-shirt during Art Basel at the Social Studies Pop-Up in Miami, Florida from December 7 through December 9.
