H&M celebrates Basquiat collection in collaboration with Ev Bravado and Téla D’Amore in Paris


On 19 June in Paris, H&M, Ev Bravado and Téla D’Amore brought together a group of friends, family, celebrities, artists and industry insiders to celebrate their collaboration featuring the works of Jean-Michel Basquiat. The intimate cocktail party of around 80 guests included Tina Kunakey, Alton Mason, Amelia Gray, Colman Domingo, Evan Mock and Justin Jefferson, all wearing pieces from the collection that explores Basquiat’s legacy and his impact on young Black creatives. H&M, Bravado and D’Amore also created one-off, custom-made pieces worn by Alton Mason and Téla D’Amore that will be donated to the Basquiat estate.


The evening was an immersive experience where freedom and creativity reigned supreme. Guests were encouraged to embrace and express their individuality using colour, brushstrokes and balloons filled with paint to decorate blank canvases, tablecloths and even clothing. The party was also the first glimpse at pieces from the collaboration – guests, such as Daniel Julez J. Smith Jr., Eva Apio and Bloody Osiris marvelled at how Basquiat’s iconic works fused with Bravado and D’Amore’s expressive designs.

“Ev Bravado and Téla D’Amore are unique voices in fashion today and we’re proud to showcase our collaboration with such a stunning event. It was a true union of fashion, art and culture,”

says Ana Hernández, Menswear Designer at H&M.

“Showcasing the collection for the first time with our friends, family and fellow creatives was important to us – we believe in the power of community. And by creating custom looks, we were able to expand the collection in another way,”

say Ev Bravado and Téla D’Amore.

The collection launches 18 July and will be available in selected stores worldwide and online at
