Supreme X Jean Michel Basquiat Is A Daunting Task

If you want to read some awesome, insightful shit about Jean Michel by someone who actually knew him, read Glenn O'Brien's essay here. The rest of us have his art and the wack Jay Z lyrics and Uniqlo T-shirts to go with it. It's safe to say the millennial generation has been force fed and force sold more than enough JMB to last a lifetime, in the process making dude the incredibly unfortunate poster child for faux-culture and over-saturation. So when Supreme announced their collaboration with the Basquiat estate, they were left with the task of not only making good looking clothing with art that looks like shit on purpose, but with making them, well, not corny. In some cases they've succeeded, such as the all-over print shirt and the graphic T-shirts. As for the photo print hoodie and tee, you can be the judge. I mean, it's, like, the second photo that comes up when you Google Image search "Basquiat". Supreme x Basquiat will be sold out in a matter of seconds on September 26.
