H&M has launched a pop-art menswear collection featuring prints by American artist Keith Haring – perfect for that first “end of lockdown” party on Freedom Day.
The Keith Haring x H&M streetwear collection includes men’s hoodies, T-shirts, an oversized denim jacket and shorts, all featuring the artist’s most recognisable artworks.
Haring’s iconic cartoonish illustrations can also be seen across apparel and accessories, including a reversible bucket hat, a shoulder bag, and trainers, as well as underwear and socks.
To celebrate the collection, H&M worked with photographer Theo Wenner and two upcoming New York-based artists. The campaign was shot on location at the famous ‘Crack is Wack’ mural in East Harlem, a landmark along New York’s FDR Drive.
The menswear collection is available on HM.com with prices ranging from £2.99 to £39.99
In other Haring news, British footwear brand Dr. Martens has also unveiled a new collaboration with the socio-political artist. This follows the recent success of Converse X Keith Haring basketball boots.
Haring’s recognisable cartoonish illustrations have been printed onto two original Dr. Martens silhouettes, the 1460 boot for adults and kids and the 1461 shoe, all detailed with two bright character lace charms.
The 1460 boot is enhanced with black graphic detailing across the upper and features a strip of Haring’s bold, colourful figures graphic on the heel. While the black kids 1460 boot is printed with his classic bat graphic and features a cartoon dog on the lace charm and an illustrated sock liner.
Completing the collaboration are two 1461 shoes decorated with his staple designs. The first a nod to his ‘angelic baby’ designs with white colouring and the second is an all-over print featuring Haring’s iconic characters.
The Coverse X Keith Haring collection has been a huge success as seen at ASOS, Office, Offspring and Sole Supplier – all around the £75 price mark. Check out the cool tees too.
