Rumor: SUPREME Are Working on a Basquiat Collection

British magazine HUH claims to have found out about American streetwear-brand SUPREME having secured the rights to paintings by Jean-Michel Basquiat.

It’s rather unlikely SUPREME would do that for the sole purpose of making a few copies for home-use. It’s rather likely however, that the brand will launch Basquiat Collection right on time for the Spring/Summer 2013 season.

We’re already getting excited – for two reasons:

Firstly, the awareness for SUPREME has increased to an extent in the past two months that it’s not really cool anymore. A huge amount of assholes are running around with SUPREME caps and other logo-print stuff by now.

Secondly, the dandy Basquiat is one of our absolute favorite artists – also, just like all our idols, slept with Madonna at some point. For one of his paintings we’d easily sell our entire wardrobe. Speaking of which, the artist with the crazy dreadlocks preferably painted his work in ARMANI suits – not some random street-wear.

By the way, SUPREME wouldn’t be the first brand to use Basquiats paintings: REEBOK, VALENTINO, and UNIQLO had done the same before. Let’s see whether SUPREME can find a new angle here.
