Swatch x Keith Haring
If you were a teenager in the 1980s, you probably wore a Swatch or two or five. And since this decade’s designers have been rehashing ’80s fashion trends (shoulder-padded blazers, baggy “boyfriend” jeans and wide belts), the timing is right for the Swiss watchmaker to make its resurgence.
Swatch, which made the late graffiti artist Keith Haring a household name, again looks to the street for its latest artistic collaboration this summer. The watchmaker enlisted New York’s Billy the Artist and Matthew Langille, along with Europeans Ted Scapa and Grems, to channel the decade’s mix of street and sleek for its Artist Collection, which debuted in 1985 and has featured work by Yoko Ono, Annie Leibovitz and Robert Altman.
