Multi-disciplinary artist Brett Westfall has been traveling with his “Signs of Life” exhibition since Fall 2020, taking over These Days Los Angeles, COMME des GARÇONS Trading Museum Tokyo, Dover Street Market LA and NY, and now, One Grand Gallery Portland — and in celebration of the exhibition coming to a close, the artist has worked with COMME des GARÇONS on a limited-edition capsule collection.

Known for dabbling in painting, assemblage, drawing, installation, fashion, video, film, and photography, Westfall also founded his own label Unholy Matrimony in 2002, which closed in 2011. However, this enabled him to develop a connection with Rei Kawakubo, subsequently allowing him to work on CdG Homme Plus collections and a CdG Guerrilla store in Los Angeles which he conceptualized and ran.

Today, the artist’s last “Signs of Life” exhibition comes complete with a pop-up store that will be selling the COMME des GARÇONS collaboration alongside his eponymous label’s product line, as well as hand-picked art products from his friends, including the likes of Airei, Baseck, Clutchgolf, K-Wash, No More Rulers, Pizzanista, RYK and These Days.

The collection itself is centered around the “Signs of Life” exhibition, which sees his work combine with the minds of his daughter Moon Westfall and the electronic artist Baseck. Here, COMME des GARÇONS Homme Plus’ Nike Air Carnivore collaboration has been adapted with hand-painted strawberries and “FRESH” branding on the rear, while shirts and oversized T-shirts now feature more strawberry and “FRESH” branding in the same theme.

Rounding out the collaborative drop are accessories, notably pouches, that continue in the same vein. Take a look at the piece above, and check out Brett Westfall’s “Signs of Life” exhibition at One Grand Gallery Portland, with a live performance set by Baseck and K-Wash, on December 11 from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m local time.

In other news, IDEA Books has dropped the second edition of Glen Luchford’s PRADA 96-98.
