I’ve never been a huge Reebok fan, but when a brand consistently pays homage to one of the 20th century’s most iconic artists, I think they deserve a little play. Back in the summer of 2009, Reebok launched a special capsule collection honoring the late Jean-Michel Basquiat, and they’ve since released a number of other Basquiat-themed items. This season, they’re at it again. Their Spring/Summer 2012 apparel includes a special line of items from Reebok’s Affili’Art collection designed by Swizz Beatz. I think “The Radiant Child” would be honored. Check out some of the past releases and get a look at the SS12 lookbook and product shots below.
The SS12 line features a lot more clothing than past Basquiat releases. I actually prefer the shirts and jackets over the sneakers this time around, so I’ll show you guys more of the clothing, but for my sneakerheads, you can check out more of the shoes here.
