As we’ve seen time and time again over the past few years, the world’s of contemporary art and streetwear have once again found a common ground in which to tunefully coexist. Keith Haring’s poetic pop-art portfolio has long remained a target for garment design, with the artist’s instantly-recognizable chalk-style outlines finding a home on countless statement wares. The infamous street artist first gained notoriety in the mid-‘80s, strategically choosing to inflect New York City subway trains before moving on to large scale murals.
French label Études chose to honor Haring’s distinct work with a heavily-embellished denim guest jacket. Signature caricatures taken from Haring’s archival vault are found imbued all throughout, including his famous dancing dog figure and three-eyed smily face character. A clean white workwear-style silhouette is upheld by a spattering of cartoonish renders that eloquently underscore the surrounding chest, back and sleeve areas.
