More Basquiat Postmortem Merchandizing

03.22.10 Marina Galperina

There’s a Reebok Spring/Summer 2010 Basquiat shoe and t-shirt collection in minimalist white, unlike previous Basquiat Reebok tributes (there were more than one). Being less tacky makes it seemingly less creepy.

From what can be garnered from a Google Translated post, these shoes and shirts are for the kids who like art but recognize themselves as less than apt at it. Because yesterday’s failed artist is today’s fashionable realist. The post also plugs upcoming Basquiat doc “The Radiant Child.” Internet sniffing hasn’t turned up any direct association, so far. |artschoolvets|
