Street Art Meets Surfer Culture With Billabong’s Jean-Michel Basquiat Board Shorts And Tees

Billabong


Nothing is better than spending an entire summer weekend in a pair of board shorts. Swim trunk season is in full season and Billabong has some awesome new styles for Bros of all shapes and sizes, including their brand-new Tribong shorts.

Their new releases for Summer 2019 includes Americana shorts and ’70s-inspired throwbacks. But my personal favorite is a radical collection of board shorts featuring the licensed designs of Jean-Michel Basquiat.

Basquiat was a legend in the New York street art world. A few details on the collab:

Influenced by street art, comics and children’s sketches, Basquiat turned a series of blank
notebooks into groundbreaking iconography, which now lives bold in your favorite boardshorts. Carefully crafted with eco and performance-minded 4-way stretch recycled fabric, we’ve paired premium Billabong boardshort technology with Basquiat’s groundbreaking work. As disruptive as he was iconic, Basquiat’s scrawling lines, & vibrant, clashing colors are now emblazoned across the premium garments of our Billabong LAB collection.

The street art world finally collides with the world of shreddin’ and lounging on the beach.

Go check out the whole collection over at Billabong.
