    • I don't know why you guys can only see this as supreme taking advantage of jean. I see this as a proper way to commemorate his life work. Most of the younger people don't know who he is. So if supreme releases this collection people will look him up and his work will spread.

I work in a store that sold the Obey x Keith Haring colab and when I tried to make conversation with her about him / ask if she liked Haring's work, she looked at me blankly and said..."What do you mean? It's just a t-shirt". Then laughed in my face. I love Basquiat and hope this does bring his work to a wider audience, but the "yoof" of today really do not care. They just stamp their feet until Mummy will fork the money out for the stuff, so they can try impress their mates while they snort cider and eat crack, or whatever it is they do. Think the drop will look good though!

    • They should let him rest to be honest. The industry fucked him up, yet it's still going on after he's gone. Sorry for the change in mood, but the last thing I want to see is a bunch of swag-fags wearing Basquiat on them. If I see someone wearing a Basquiat fitted cap, Basquiat T-shirt, saggy tight jeans and Jordan's, I'll ball my eyes out.
