For Wooyoungmi’s second capsule collection with Mr Porter, the Paris-based, South Korea-born designer turned to the street art of Jean-Michel Basquiat. “I was inspired by the muted scenery of a back alley of New York City,” the designer explains. “I wanted the collection to be a complete wardrobe for Basquiat.”

Consisting of 12 pieces and including, sportswear, ready-to-wear, and a few accessories, the collection is currently available online at Mr Porter
