In A/W 20/21, Coach launches its collaborative series with Jean Michel Basquiat, a late American graffiti artist. Coach focuses on the intense multicultural atmosphere in his works and uses graffiti works in clothes and bags. Dynamic and bright colors are retained, and the rebellious style is underlined. Jean Michel Basquiat was born on December 22, 1960, in Brooklyn, New York. He was first known as a graffiti artist in the late 1970s and later became a successful neo-expressionist artist in the 1980s. Filled with angry and mad images, his works are a mixture of chaos, even barbarism and superb skills. His works almost affect the whole fashion industry, such as Uniqlo, Off-White and so on. And he is universally acknowledged by the art circle as one of the most important artists of the 20th century.
Fendi unveils a collaboration with British post-1990s graffiti artist Mr. Doodle on Chinese Valentine’s Day. Black lines draw dense cartoon patterns, like sunflowers, octopuses, birds and monsters. Red heart patterns echo the Valentine theme. The real name of Mr. Doodle is Sam Cox who was born in 1994 in Kent, England. At the age of nine, he doodled on whatever he got. His symbolic graffiti work is dense and thick figures, objects and patterns, expressing his view of the world. His improvisations appear on not only canvas, but also furniture, books, clothes and even the subway. His works, often called as the Spaghetti Graffiti, create an expanding universe where nothing is treated seriously.
Fendi releases the Pre-Fall 20/21 co-branded collection with the visual artist Joshua Vides.

Joshua Vides also also “caricatured” the brand’s classic monogram and Fendi Stamp. Moreover, there are some designs turning 3D clothes into 2D. Comic style black lines on white items sketch outlines and partial details. Joshua Vides is famous for his redrawing of sneakers in a 2D comic style. This time these black and white lines bring us to a comic world.
