Why Are There So Many Basquiat Fashion Collaborations? | BoF Professional, News & Analysis

At this past weekend’s Frieze Art Fair in London, collectors were on the hunt for the next art world sensation. It’s likely plenty of fashion dealmakers were, too.

Brands see contemporary art as a way not only to draft off a globally recognised artist’s popularity but also to signal their shared values to consumers – a Robert Mapplethorpe print might suggest sex-positivity, while Banksy on a T-shirt could reveal its wearer to be a capitalist critic.

It’s a strategy adopted by labels high and low. Uniqlo has released products featuring the works of Jeff Koons, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Andy Warhol and

Why Fast Fashion Still Has Gen-Z’s Heart | BoF Professional, News & Analysis

I Saw It First, a UK-based online fast fashion brand, was able to pivot with lightning speed from going-out dresses to tie-dye sweatpants when the world locked down and back again as soon as restrictions eased.
