Komono is proud to bring the raw energy and beauty of Jean-Michel Basquiat to the world of fashion accessories. Komono is once again raising the drawbridges between design, art and fashion by collaborating with the estate of Jean-Michel Basquiat.
This unique collection of six Basquiat wristwear pieces was created to deepen and extend Komono’s trademark desire to blur boundaries, bridging the gap between accessories and high art.
It is no coincidence that Jean-Michel Basquiat is the very first name on the official billing of the high-end KOMONO Curated series. KOMONO and the estate of Jean-Michel Basquiat have collaborated closely to harness his timeless power and brilliance.
Basquiat himself never respected traditional boundaries between ‘street art’ and ‘high art’ or between text, painting and other media. Komono and the estate of Jean-Michel Basquiat have collaborated closely to harness his timeless power and brilliance and create a collection of timepieces that would please a man who preferred his expensive suits splattered with paint.
Each and every watch in the capsule collection boasts a unique printed fabric wristband, depicting a different detail of a particular Basquiat painting. No two watches are the same.
To celebrate this collaboration we threw launch parties all over the world, starting at Colette in Paris and Monar in Antwerp, followed by Auckland, Sydney, Bangkok, Prague, Los Angeles and Vancouver.
Global launch for press only at Colette, Paris.
