Good news: the latest capsule collection from Off-White is launching in Manila. It features signature Off-White stylistic themes and the work of legendary artist Jean-Michel Basquiat.
Off-White artistic director Virgil Abloh says that the commemorative capsule is a celebration of the late New York graffiti artist. “Jean-Michel Basquiat is an important link to a downtown New York culture and lineage of American artist that laid the foundation for Off-White to exist today,” said Abloh.
Brooklyn-born Basquiat was an influential African-American artist who rose to fame in the 1980s. His paintings often inspired social commentary on topics like politics, poverty, and segregation. He’s also regarded for elevating graffiti artists into the New York gallery scene.
Basquiat’s distinctive creations meshed with Off-White quotation marks are emblazoned across a seven-piece collection made up of T-shirts, hoodies, trousers, and iPhone cases that are selling out quick
