Jean-Michel Basquiat bags, César Baldaccini necklaces, and Kenny Scharf sweats are among the unexpected sartorial offerings

While Fashion Week looks more than a little bit different this season, designers are digging deeper than ever to develop collections that will surprise, delight, and inspire, even in the midst of a global pandemic. It seems physical distance and stunted travel have only led to more exciting collaborations, particularly between fashion designers and artists or art institutions. Reflecting a multitude of styles, artful clothing and accessories abound, with sales of many of those pieces going to support a charitable cause. From shoes to necklaces, loungewear to high fashion, these recent collaborations include fresh takes on iconic works by Jean-Michel Basquiat and Claude Monet, as well as innovative designs by emerging artists.

Heron Preston x Kenny Scharf

A creative talent whose résumé includes DJ, artist, creative director, and designer, Heron Preston skyrocketed to fashion fame when he launched a collection in 2018 with NASA for its 60th anniversary. Since then, he’s become one of the biggest names in street-style fashion, making him a perfect match for artist and muralist Kenny Scharf. The two collaborated on Preston’s fall/winter 2020 collection, which renders Scharf’s 1998 Meanie painting on hoodies, tees, button-downs, and more.

One of the most unexpected yet inspiring collaborations comes from Belgian fashion label Namacheko, which collaborated with Gregory Crewdson for its fall/winter 2020 collection. By using an 18th-century method of warp printing, in which individual threads are printed before they are woven, Namacheko imbues the artist’s arrestingly eerie photographs with movement. The range of capes, knitwear, dresses, scarves, and more will soon be available at retailers including the Gagosian Shop.

For its latest collection, Coach tapped into the enduring power of Jean-Michel Basquiat, a legendary artist who has inspired numerous contemporary fashion collaborations. “Basquiat is the ultimate cultural icon and a symbol of the unorthodox creativity that is nurtured in a place like New York,” Coach creative director Stuart Vevers said in a statement. Handbags, accessories, attire, and shoes reflect a huge range of products emblazoned with the artist’s colorful crowns, dinosaurs, skylines, faces, and phrases.

Biba was a London fashion store of the 1960s and 1970s. Biba was started and primarily run by the Polish-born Barbara Hulanicki with help of her husband Stephen Fitz-Simon.

Early years[edit]

Biba's early years were rather humble, with many of the outfits being cheap and available to the public by mail order. The first store, in Abingdon Road in Kensington, was opened in September 1964. Biba's postal boutique had its first significant success in May 1964 when it offered a pink gingham dress with a hole cut out of the back of the neck with a matching triangular kerchief to readers of the Daily Mirror.[1] The dress had celebrity appeal, as a similar dress had been worn by Brigitte Bardot. By the morning after the dress was advertised in the Daily Mirror, over 4,000 orders had been received. Ultimately, some 17,000 outfits were sold.

Hulanicki worked as a fashion illustrator after studying at Brighton Art College in the late 1950s. She married advertising executive Stephen Fitz-Simon and they soon opened a mail order clothing company that she named Biba's Postal Boutique. Biba was the nickname of her younger sister Biruta.[1]

Big Biba[edit]

In 1973 with the backing of Dorothy Perkins and British Land, the store moved to the seven-storey Derry & Toms department store, which immediately attracted up to a million customers weekly, making it one of the most visited tourist attractions in London.[1][2] There were different departments, and each floor had its own theme, such as a children's floor, a floor for men, a book store, a food market, and a 'home' floor which sold items such as wallpaper, paint, cutlery, soft furnishings and even statues. The overall design was produced by Whitmore-Thomas Partnership, run by artist/designers Steve Thomas (artist) and Tim Whitmore.[3] Each department had its own logo or sign, which was based on the Biba logo and had a picture describing the department. These were commissioned by Thomas and Whitmore and designed by Kasia Charko.[4]

The store had an Art Deco-interior reminiscent of the Golden Age of Hollywood[5] and non-traditional displays, such as a giant Snoopy and his doghouse in the children's department, where merchandise based on the PeanutsFs19 ford. comic strip was sold. The Biba Food Hall was also designed ingeniously, each part being aimed at one particular kind of product; a unit made to look like a dog (based on Hulanicki's own dog, a Great Dane named Othello)[6] consisted of dog food; a huge baked beans tin can consisted of only tins of Baked beans; a can of 'Warhol's Condensed Soup' etc., all foods having individual innovative units.Also at the new 'Big Biba' was 'The Rainbow Restaurant', which was located on the fifth floor of the department store and was destined to become a major hang-out for rock stars, but which was not solely the reserve of the elite. With all of these renovations and additions, Biba became known as a 'theatre for fashion.'[1] Also at the site was the Kensington Roof Gardens, which are still there today.


Big Biba was a huge responsibility in terms of expense and organization, but Hulanicki and Fitz felt they needed to 'keep moving forward.' Because of this massive undertaking, Hulanicki said, 'Every time I went into the shop, I was afraid it would be for the last time.'[citation needed] No one was aware of how serious the financial difficulties were going to be - and they proved too much for the new entrepreneurs; as a result Dorothy Perkins and Dennis Day came to save the day and bought 75% of Biba. This led to the formation of Biba Ltd, which meant that the brand and the store could now be properly financed.

After disagreements with the Board over creative control, Hulanicki left the company and, shortly afterwards in 1975, Biba was closed by the British Land Company.[1] The Dorothy Perkins shareholder decided that the Derry and Toms building that housed Big Biba was worth more than the ailing business itself. It sold the trademark to a consortium with no connection to Barbara Hulanicki, who opened a store in London on 27 November 1978, on two floors in Conduit Street in London's Mayfair. The store was not a success, and closed less than two years later.


There have been several attempts to relaunch Biba, the first occurring as soon after its closure as 1977.[7][8] Another relaunch took place in the mid-1990s with Monica Zipper as head designer.[9] Barbara Hulanicki has not been involved with any of these relaunches, and due to the use of Biba's logo and similar labels, these garments are easy to pass off as original vintage pieces.[7]

The Biba label was relaunched again in May 2006 under designer Bella Freud. Again, Biba's founder, Barbara Hulanicki, was not contacted for the relaunch and said it was 'very, very painful', believing that the new Biba would 'betray its heritage.'[10] Freud's first collection Spring/Summer 2007 was unveiled at London Fashion Week in September 2006, and was criticised for straying from the original concept of low-priced clothes for teenagers, needing 'more polish',[11] as they 'had a Biba flavour but lacked the retro details that the original Biba designs had.'[12] Freud's second attempt, Autumn/Winter 2007 was also panned as 'the kind of thing that's already over-available in fast fashion chains.'[13] Freud left the company after just 2 seasons in June 2007 to relaunch her own label.[14] The Biba relaunch failed and the company went into administration for a second time in 2008.

House of Fraser bought the company in November 2009 for a second relaunch by an in-house design team, announcing Daisy Lowe as the new face of the label.[citation needed] Hector Castro and a five-strong team were selected to replace Freud[15] with couture hats created by Prudence Millinery.[16] This relaunch was highly successful, outselling House of Fraser's other in-house brands in just two weeks of its launch, boosting its year end sales.[17] Meanwhile, Hulanicki instead designed capsule collections for rival high-street company Topshop,[18][19] and once again expressed her unhappiness with the relaunch, attacking the new Biba as 'too expensive' and 'for failing to reflect the original Biba style'.[20] She also signed with Asda to produce three to four collections of clothing retailing between £11 and £18.[21]

In 2014, it was announced that Hulanicki would be a consultant to the Biba brand, after signing an agreement with House of Fraser.[22]
