Dr. Martens x Jean-Michel Basquiat
THE LEGACY LIVES ON

Erupting onto the art scene in the early 80s, Jean-Michel Basquiat was a self-taught creative prodigy. In two short decades, he made an impact on the art world that has influenced every generation since. This new collection pays tribute to the boundary-breaking artist and the chaotic brilliance he left behind.
