Kokeshi | Basquiat Three-point-crown
Ships From Copenhagen, Denmark
Paying tribute to Jean-Michel Basquiat’s look,we integrate the iconic three-pointed crown on the back of this jacket suit design. The three-pointed crown has been a reoccurring symbol within Basquiat’s work resulting in an undeniable association with Basquiat himself and the celebration of his short, yet prolific career. The crown, a symbol of power, was used by Basquiat to elevate the subjects of his paintings, while commenting on power dynamics mirrored within his works. © Estate of Jean-Michel Basquiat.

The Lucie Kaas Kokeshi universe celebrates pioneers, icons, and trailblazers to remind us of who we are and where we are going. Some modern versions have small messages within, but in Lucie Kaas's rendition, the Kokeshi Figures are the message.
