Uniqlo has launched a new collection featuring iconic artwork by artists Keith Haring, Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat.

The brand say they’re celebrating “the artists who laid the foundations of the pop art world” with the range.

Uniqlo have just released the collection online and you can shop it at uniqlo.com.

The collection mostly features t-shirts with designs by Haring, Warhol and Basquiat, who are some of the most influential artists of the 20th century.

This includes a graphic tee with Haring’s black and white design of interlocking figures, while another, more subtle design features his barking dog on the t-shirt’s breast pocket and his recognisable signature across the back.

The iconic gay artist’s pop art designs were influenced by 1980s culture in New York and started out as graffiti on the walls of the city’s subway.

Haring went on to create large scale works that addressed issues including the AIDS epidemic, and later created the painting A Pile of Crowns for Jean-Michel Basquiat, in memory of the late artist.

Basquiat himself is represented by his iconic crown design and graffiti-style painting embellished on t-shirts, while Warhol’s Campbell’s Soup and self portrait artworks feature on t-shirts.

Also included in the range is three caps including a beige one embellished with embroidery reading “Sugar Ray Robinson” and a small design by Basquiat, a denim cap featuring Haring’s barking dog and a black cap with Warhol’s Brillo artwork.
