Art Meets Running

Running is an art. And sometimes art is running. Like the all-new limited-edition launch of the Basquiat x Roark Collection, which brings together the raw art of Jean-Michel Basquiat with the lifestyle and performance blend of Roark. 

The 17-piece collection includes apparel designed for the Roark sub label, Roark Run Amok, featuring performance wear for runners.

This isn’t the first foray into collabs for Roark– in the past they’ve dropped sets featuring Black Sabbath and Motörhead. However, the Basquiat drop treats the apparel as a literal canvas to showcase his transcendent style that combines both contemporary art and primitivism, a style which made him one of the most iconic and important artists of the 20th century.

Key styles for Roark Run Amok include a range of premium running apparel including Roark’s pinnacle run short the Alta, made from a lightweight 4-way stretch nylon, and the Secondwind, an ultra lightweight packable run jacket featuring stretch ripstop fabric with a no-shine dry feel and durable water-resistant finish.

  1. I usually don’t care about what I wear to run. I go for what is clean hopefully matching socks sometimes I get lucky randomly match colors etc.

    I love Jean-Michel Basquiat and would absolutely wear this gear to social runs getting in miles and hanging out with friends after.
