We’re well excited for the Basquiat show coming to the Barbican this month. As in, we genuinely can’t wait- it being his first ever major UK retrospective and all. And it turns out Browns are pretty excited too- providing us with somewhat of an appetite whetter, they’ve created this rather wonderful 18-piece unisex capsule collection celebrating the life and work of the enigmatic American artist. Tees, hoodies, shoes, denim and even a skateboard (because why not?), have all been transformed into canvases onto which Basquiat’s most loved works have been printed. Fitting really, given that Jean-Michel himself had a bit of a tendency to paint on clothing. And refrigerators. In fact, he would paint on just about anything that was in front of him, including shipping containers and type writers. In tandem with the capsule launch, Browns have lots of exciting in-store events planned, including a total window make-over, which, if you’re familiar with Browns’ window do’s, you know will be nothing short of spectacular.
The collection launches September 15th exclusively at Browns
