BAPE and COMME des GARÇONS Reunite for PLAY-ful Collaborative Shirts

Published

on

Back in April, BAPE launched its outpost inside COMME des GARÇONS‘ new Osaka store, commemorated with a special capsule collection two months later. The duo have no plans to halt the joint efforts any time soon it seems, as evidenced by a brief assortment of co-branded tees and hoodies that recall the effortless graphics offered by COMME des GARÇONS PLAY.



Realized in a similar format to PLAY’s heart-emblazoned tees, the new BAPE partnership sees the venerable Japanese label’s name printed alongside a tiny APE HEAD at the chest of each peice. Action lines make it look as though “COMME des GARÇONS” is being shouted by the familiar symbol for a quirky approach to co-branding. Navy and white T-shirts accompany long-sleeve striped iterations in blue and red, while grey and black hoodies boast full-length zippers in homage to a classic BAPE design element.

Take a Look at Jean-Michel Basquiat’s Influential Works in New Virtual Tour

Published

on

Last year, The Brant Foundation in New York City’s East Village opened with a monumental exhibition on Jean-Michel Basquiat. The show brought almost 70 works by Basquiat — created from 1980 to 1987 — back to the same neighborhood that had inspired him. Now, the foundation is providing a new virtual tour of the influential exhibition, allowing viewers to explore all four floors of the show and digitally view some of Basquiat’s most important works.



Spanning the artist’s entire oeuvre, the exhibition explores Basquiat’s prolific yet brief career and broad range of subjects. Highlights include several of the artist’s most celebrated large-scale canvases, such as two head paintings from 1981 and 1982, as well as the multi-paneled Grillo (1984). In other works like Arroz con Pollo (1981) and Price of Gasoline in the Third World (1982), Basquiat shed light on issues like colonialization, the African Diaspora and racial inequality. Other paintings immortalized his heroes, such as jazz legend Charlie Parker and boxers Sugar Ray Robinson and Joe Louis.
