NORTH AMERICA–Artestar and The Andy Warhol Foundation have teamed up once again with Billabong LAB to celebrate the works of Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat through a new apparel collection. 

The clothing line, dubbed Warhol x Basquiat x Billabong, marries Basquiat’s spontaneous style with Warhol’s structure across a range of board shorts, swimwear, tees and accessories for men and women.

"Warhol and Basquiat had this crazy relationship. The inspiration behind this collaboration was driven by the unique juxtaposition of their opposing styles, and the stories behind their collaborative works," says Brad Lancaster, global vice president, creative, Billabong. "The best part of this collection is how it brings some the world's most inspiring and exclusive art to a collection of boardshorts and products for the kid who wouldn't otherwise experience it."

Billabong LAB is a division of Billabong that supports artist, musicians, designers, photographers and surf icons.

The collaboration is now available via Billabong.
