Following a collaboration with watercolor artist Mayumi Yamase, NOAH collaborates with the Barney Bubbles estate on a four-piece collection of T-Shirts for Spring 2022.

Barney Bubbles was a prominent English graphic artist synonymous with the independent music scene from the ’60s through to the ’80s. Bubbles is best known for creating striking album artworks and posters rich with symbols and riddles. “From Elvis Costello and Ian Dury, to The Damned and Hawkwind, his distinctive approach to design would solidify him within the genre as one of the most influential artists of all time,” wrote NOAH.

Four designs are available for purchase including a “Don’t Join!” tee featuring a hamburger graphic, which was one of Bubbles’ first works while working at his Portobello design studio named Teenburger. An Armed Forces tee urges against joining the army, Smug tee displays abstract graphics in his distinct style, and The Show is Over tee features a quote from Greil Marcus’ social commentary, Lipstick Traces reading, “The show is over. The audience turn to leave and put on their coats and go home. No more coats. No more homes.”

The NOAH x Barney Bubbles series will be available on February 26 at Noah’s webstore and select physical locations for ¥8,250 JPY (approximately $72 USD). A full bio of Barney Bubbles can be found here.

Elsewhere in fashion, MM6 Maison Margiela FW22 epitomizes transitional design.
