Sean John’s Basquiat Capsule Collection Looks Pretty Fire.
For the 20th anniversary of Sean John, Diddy’s fashion brand has teamed up with the Jean-Michel Basquiat estate to release a capsule collection.
“We wanted to pay homage to Basquiat’s creative genius with this capsule collection,” Sean John President, Jeff Tweedy said in a press release. “Basquiat’s influence on culture transcended race and class to highlight more pressing issues on society that are still relevant today. Using his art as a medium to fight racism, combat cultural appropriation or rebelling against power structures—Basquiat always challenged the standard. We felt that it was vital to tell his story and educate our consumers on this talented artist.”
Diddy added: “Basquiat used his art as a vessel to delve further into his definition of being a black man in America. The Sean John creative team drew inspiration from the culmination of Basquiat’s work by mixing his profound messaging with his daring aesthetic.”
The collection will be sold in Macy’s (in-store and online) this month.
