Basquiat fans will love this new fashion collection


[P]icasso-esque earrings? Hunter x Isamaya Ffrench’s leather backpacks? Sculptural headgear a la Grace Jones? Call it peak fashion peacock but it seams wearable art has never been more covetable this season.

Don’t have extra $$$ to splash out on an original 1980s Basquiat? No matter – put in on a t-shirt. Enter ‘Basquiat for Browns’ – the late 1970s NY-infused capsule collection which coincides with the first major UK retrospective of the iconic graffiti artist this year.

The pioneering image-maker – synonymous with New York’s art scene in the 1980s – was known for his wild and unique paintings, and influenced by everything from surreal silent films to trash television. This masterful 18-piece range comprising of RTW, shoes and bags – created in partnership with US streetwear brand Rome Pays Off – is the ultimate homage to a hero in the art world. Happy shopping…
