DC x BASQUIAT / 21 AT 21
Earlier this month, DC introduced their latest coup - the Basquiat collection titled “21 at 21“ - to the Berlin crowd via a great night filled with beer, bratwurst and a proper cash-for-tricks session.
We’re in the lucky position to raffle a pair of the sought after “BASQ Manual“ in size US 8, accompanied with a matching tee in M. All you have to do is to write an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with DC x Basquiat as the subject until August 30, 2021. Oh, and don’t forget to let us know about your address as well, right?!

ABOUT THE COLLECTION: For 2021, DC proudly honors the legacy of Jean-Michel Basquiat with a footwear and apparel collection featuring 21 paintings from the artist’s most prolific year. During the 1981-82 period when Basquiat was just 21 years old, he engaged in a flurry of productivity, creating some of his most transformative work and staking his place in both the art world and our culture at large. As a brand rooted in skateboarding and streetwear, DC’s collision of 90’s East Coast style and West Coast creativity aligns naturally with Jean-Michel Basquiat’s voice and vision.
The collection includes a broad array of staple DC styles, from the popular new Manual to the classic Lynx Zero—as well as some kids-specific slip-ons featuring Basquiat’s more youthful art. Another stand-out from the collection is an asymmetrical Manual Hi featuring all 21 of the paintings used in the collection, painstakingly set on 21 different panels. They tell the complete story and will look as good on a sculpture pedestal as they do on foot. And typical of DC collaborations, we took it to the next level with the Basquiat Hybrid, a never-seen-before mashup of the Lynx OG and Legacy OG.
