Hul le Kes
The Hul le Kes Basquiat jacket is a short, light jacket that fits just above the waist. It is handmade in our studio in Arnhem, The Netherlands. You may already know our Basquiat in antique linen, this one is made using organic cotton twill.
Like you’re used to from us, this jacket is made by hand, and the fabric limits us to making 10 of them. As a brand that’s trying to fight overproduction, we make our products to order rather than before.
Our production may be limited, but so is our environmental impact.
Made to order helps us create only the items we need. It’s a benefit for you, us and the environment.
Like most Hul le Kes items this jacket comes with its own registration number as well as a Hul le Kes passport.
"The more I paint the more I like everything"
This garment is named after Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960 – 1988). The American artist born in Brooklyn, New York. Basquiat started as a graffiti artist and in his life transitioned from being homeless to becoming a well-known artist selling his work for prices up to $25,000. In the early 80’s he had a relationship with the then still unknown singer, Madonna. During the same period Basquiat worked together with David Bowie and produced a 12-inch rap single. He died at the age of 27 from a heroin overdose in his studio in Manhattan.
At Hul le Kes we do not want to focus on a particular gender. Therefore, we work with our own size chart. Our sizes range from 1 to 4. When a garment is a one size fits all, it’s sized as A. For our Basquiat jacket you can choose the following sizes corresponding with the chart below. 1, 2, 3.
