LEE® ANNOUNCES GLOBAL COLLABORATION WITH LEGENDARY ARTIST JEAN-MICHEL BASQUIAT.
Today, Lee® announces the launch of a collection featuring the work of artist Jean-Michel Basquiat. Available globally, this capsule blends legendary denim and groundbreaking art in unique styles for men and women.
Bursting onto the New York City art scene in the ‘80s, Basquiat’s use of bright colors and striking graphics cemented him as a global cultural icon and left a lasting mark on the contemporary art world. Similarly, Lee has been influencing the world of denim for 100 years, creating styles like the Lee RiderTM jacket, a true original that’s often copied, but never replicated.
Inspired by Basquiat's unique sense of style and personality, Lee’s denim silhouettes and coordinates act as the canvas to showcase his neo-expressionist artwork. Splatter-painted jeans, boldly-striped sweaters and crown-adorned denim jackets seamlessly blend with artwork like the “Warrior”, “Pez Dispenser” and more.
