Off-White™'s Jean-Michel Basquiat Collection Is for the Art Lovers
Virgil Abloh pays homage to an icon.
Hot on the heels of its Smets capsule collection released earlier this month – which is heavily inspired by surrealist artist René Magritte – Off-White™ continues its art streak with an all-new program featuring the work of legendary artist Jean-Michel Basquiat. The seven-piece range comprises of a selection of hoodies, T-shirts, pants and even a denim shirt.
As a contrast to Off-White™’s contemporary aesthetic, Basquiat’s hallmark graphics exhibit an unmistakable visual signature that can only be achieved through the hand of the artist. With his scrawl-like lines and passionate strokes, a surprising balance is made between the streetwear brand’s clean lines and Basquiat’s emotional work. All in all, the collaboration is a reverent homage to the late artist and a true representation of how his enduring oeuvre is nothing but timeless.
You can shop the Jean-Michel Basquiat collection in its entirety now at Off-White™’s web store, where pieces range from $420 to $1,330 USD.
