Artestar has signed an agreement with Alice + Olivia by Stacey Bendet for a capsule collection featuring the artwork of Keith Haring.
The apparel collection comprises of the leather jacket, reversible bomber, cardigan, tees, ball gown skirts, a clutch and booties, and a patchwork print on a denim jacket, denim skirt, and jeans.
According to a report in License Global, the ready-to-wear collection marries Bendet’s primary color palette with Haring’s dancing figures and prints in patchwork collages across all the range of products.
“I have always been a fan of Keith Haring’s work–the colors and graphics. He was also one of the first artists to advance social causes, and I think at this time in our world, it’s especially important to support artists who have made a difference,” Bendet was quoted as saying.
The Keith Haring x Alice + Olivia capsule collection is available now on AliceandOlivia.com, at select retailers, and at Alice + Olivia retail locations.
Keith Allen Haring was an American artist whose pop art and graffiti-like work grew out of the New York City street culture of the 1980s.
Haring’s work grew to popularity from his spontaneous drawings in New York City subways – chalk outlines on blank black advertising-space backgrounds depicting radiant babies, flying saucers, and deified dogs.
