Jean-Michel Basquiat provides inspiration for the pair's next drop.

“I was inspired by muted scenery of back alley of New York City,” offers menswear designer Woo Young Mi of her latest collaboration with Mr Porter.

“Precisely Jean-Michel Basquiat and his graffiti works,” she continues. “Collection encapsulates Basquiat’s mood and tone of painting. Scribbles have become simplified and melted into Wooyoungmi’s relaxed tailoring. I wanted collection to be complete wardrobe for Basquiat.”

This is the second time the creative director – and the Korean label – have hooked up with the ecomm platform, having initially joined forces back in June.

The 12-piece line-up (a wallet concludes the above picks) marries sports elements with ready to wear, borrowing notes from the label’s mainline AW15 collection such as colour and silhouettes.

Dropping this month, a focus on the late New York artist extends specifically to graphics on tees and jumpers while elsewhere pieces are connected by a dark colour palette.
