Sean John Launches Basquiat Capsule Collection
Men’s fashion label, Sean John, created by Sean “Diddy” Combs is celebrating their 20th anniversary this year. To mark the occasion, the brand has launched a collaboration that pays homage to artist Jean-Michel Basquiat. The capsule collection exclusively sold at Macys is the perfect marriage of Baquiat and Comb’s connection between hip-hop and pop culture influence.
Highlights include a black long-sleeved T-shirt emblazoned with Basquiat’s signature in red, as well as a denim jacket, sweaters and tees depicting figures topped by crowns– Basquiat’s method of emphasizing a single heroic figure: a warrior, king, or artist, and their intellect.
Sean John was one of the first to launch streetwear on the runways and has continued to make waves with annual retail sales reaching over $500 million. The collection which initially featured velour track suits, fashionable denim, and color-blocked sweatshirts back in the nineties has grown up. It now embodies an updated streetwear influence that keeps loyal customers coming back for more. Looks including quilted and embossed leather jackets, versatile high top sneakers, and fine tailored suiting are defining the men’s city style today.
