The convergence of art and fashion is ever present and its latest manifestation is a collaboration between Ron Bass and Forever 21. Not familiar with Ron Bass? Ever noticed any fits inspired by Jean Michel Basquiat or Keith Haring worn by Jay Z, Beyonce, Rita Ora or Cara Delevingne? Likely done by this DIY, Brooklyn-based artist.
But now, instead of just one-offs for the more famous amongst us, Bass is using his creative talents for the masses. The designs retain their DIY heritage coming off as doodle prints, graffiti inspired imprints as well as doodle and bushstroke designs. There’s everything from tees to sweatshirts and sweatpants for both men and women.
See the designs in the slides following.
