Stacey Bendet of Alice + Olivia announced today that she will be teaming up with the Basquiat estate for the second installment of the Alice+Olivia CFDA Initiative for Young Talent. This program helps to support and promote the work of young talent. I am personally a fan of Basquiat's graffiti inspired work which will be featured in the Alice + Olivia Resort 2017 collection. With the artist most influenced artwork and Stacey's charming designs, the collection boast playful, attractive pieces that are feminine with an edgy touch. The collection will hit stores November 2016.
Jean-Michel Basquiat is one of my favorite artists. This partnership is exciting for me as it is very reflective of my brand and our continued collaboration with artists. It is also wonderful to be able to raise funds for the CFDA and support their ongoing initiatives within our industry that develop new talent. - Stacey Bendet, CEO and Creative Director of alice + olivia
