Anthony Vaccarello is a huge fan of art, and consistently acknowledges this through his work at Saint Laurent with numerous collections honoring the likes of Doug Aitken for SS22 or producing a Rive Droite collection centered on Memphis’ design scene. Now, Saint Laurent Rive Droite has worked with the Estate of Jean-Michel Basquiat and the Galerie Enrico Navarra for a Basquiat-indebted range and a complementing in-house exhibition.

The exhibition — which is to be shown at Saint Laurent Rive Droite’s Paris and Los Angeles stores — will showcase “a silkscreen, the 18 original lithographs, several drawings, ceramic plates which belonged to Andy Warhol, a spoon, and a denim jacket from one of the first AIDS auction[s] ever,” and these are going to be things that are exclusively hosted by the luxury label. As a result, it’s a rather special occasion.

In honor of this, Saint Laurent Rive Droite has also made a capsule collection inspired by the artist’s work and legacy. In Vaccarello’s usual ways, there’s much more than just clothes on offer — sure, there’s a tote bag, a backpack, tops, and cross-body bags, but that’s not all.

The star of the show is the Basquiat-covered skimboard and skateboard triptych which are, in standard form, already collector’s items. Now sporting Basquiat’s work, the pieces transcend the usual realm of functional items to become works of art in their own rights.

Additionally, Saint Laurent offers books on the artist, phone cases for a variety of iPhone types, posters, and even a limited range of vintage-inspired YSL-branded undergarments.

The Saint Laurent Rive Droite x Estate of Jean-Michel Basquiat x Galerie Enrico Navarra capsule collection can be seen in the lookbook above and purchased in-store or online now.

In other news, Slam Jam has partnered with Brain Dead for another capsule.
