Following this week’s Union LA t-shirt collaboration, Advisory Board Crystals has revealed plans for a new joint drop alongside legendary restaurateur Mr. Chow.

“More so than any other restaurant in history, Mr. Chow’s has been inextricably linked to the contemporary art world since its inception. A seemingly innumerable amount of legendary aspects cement the restaurant as an art world mecca and Michael, better known as M, as a cultural icon,” reads a statement posted to the official Advisory Board Crystals Instagram. “Michael Chow has even been the subject of many artworks from Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, David Hockney, Jean Michel Basquiat, Helmut Newton, and Ed Ruscha. Many of which can be seen within the Mr. Chow locations around the world. Stay tuned for release details.”

You can check out Advisory Board Crystals’ original Instagram announcement below. We’ll keep you updated as more information becomes available.

At the start of this month, Advisory Board Crystals joined Al Weiwei for a limited-edition line of handmade hoodies.

For example, Cy Twombly is responsible for the famous logo on all the plates and the original matchbooks feature a logo design by Ed Ruscha. A seemingly innumerable amount of legendary aspects cement the restaurant as an art world mecca and Michael, better known as M, as a cultural icon. In the 80s, the Mr. Chow’s on 57th street in New York was frequented by Andy Warhol, whose portrait of Michael Chow can be seen in this photo and on view now at @whitneymuseum exhibition “Andy Warhol- From A to B and Back Again” Michael Chow has even been the subject of many artworks from Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, David Hockney, Jean Michel Basquiat, Helmut Newton, and Ed Ruscha. Many of which can be seen within the Mr. Chow locations around the world. Stay tuned for release details. #whitneyshop
