Editor’s Notes: Japanese high street retailer Uniqlo is back with new iterations of its ongoing fashion-meets-art SPRZN NY project — a line of tees paying homage to some of the most iconic visual artists of all time, including Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring, Andy Warhol, and Jason Polan. This time, the release sees new Basquiat, Haring, and Warhol collab tees.

Unlike the last drop, this release includes a few more embroidered tees. In particular, “The Notebook” line features embroidered tees with Basquiat’s drawings, quotes, and scribbles straight from his personal notebooks. True Basquiat fans will appreciate, as his notebooks contain most of the artist’s popular contributions to NYC’s street and urban culture, in which he was the most prolific.
