Uniqlo is releasing a new collection based on works by Keith Haring, Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat.

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

Each t-shirt from the seven-piece collection showcases a graphic design by the three pioneering artists.

The latest range will be available from 10 January in-store and online at uniqlo.com.

Keith Haring is represented on two t-shirts in the collection, including a blue top with his signature in yellow embellished across the back.

The second features his artwork of the Statue of Liberty surrounded by his instantly recognisable dancing figures.

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’s colourful paintings feature on two t-shirts in the Uniqlo collection – in white and black – alongside his artist signature.

While Andy Warhol’s designs feature on three t-shirts, including a plain black tee with a banana on the pocket breast, and two other subtle tees with a nod to his famous artworks.

Uniqlo say the artist’s “world views are just as fresh today, and find expression across” this latest collection.

Last year the brand dropped its first range featuring designs by the three artists.

The collection featured t-shirts, shopper bags and caps with graphics by Basquiat, Warhol and Haring.

The latest range is priced from £14.90 and will be available online on 10 January at uniqlo.com.

Haring’s designs have featured in a number of collaborations over the past year, with the Keith Haring Foundation having teamed up with Dr. Martens, Axel Arigato and Polaroid on exclusive collections.
