A selection of Jean-Michel Basquiat paintings adorns pieces from Herschel Supply for the Vancouver-based brand’s graphic new collection. The late Basquiat is renowned for his often politically charged and poetic urban imagery and graffiti. Paying homage to one of the most significant American artists of the 20th Century, the multi-piece capsule shows off three of his Neo-Expressionist works.

The collection sees an array of backpacks, duffles, crossbodies and hip packs, along with unisex clothing, wrapped in the spontaneous, bold and vibrant works from the artist. One of Basquiat’s most highly acclaimed paintings, Untitled (Scull/Skull), adorns a series of bags, jackets, tees and headwear. Now’s The Time, his 1985 painting depicting a vinyl record of Charlie Parker’s eponymous bebop composition, is seen on a washed cotton canvas tote and daypack in addition to a pair of jackets. An all-over print of Per Capita swathes a selection of functional ripstop bags. To round out the offering, each piece is finished with Basquiat’s three point crown symbol.

The Herschel Supply Basquiat Collection is available now on the company’s website.
