Honey Fucking Dijon x Keith Haring

About Honey Fucking Dijon

Many ask where did HFD come from, a streetwear brand popped up in 2018 featuring collaborations with the best artists and designers in the world so who’s behind this brand? It’s no secret but we are going to make it clear. Deriving from Honey Dijon’s stage name, which has then been adjusted into a brand with a powerhouse partnership with Adrian Joffe, the head honcho of Dover Street Market and President of Comme des Garçon International. Two of the latest collaborations between HFD and other brands/artists have to be some of the best artwork I’ve seen which gives us a nostalgic vibe with Peter Paid’s graffiti-inspired sale t-shirts, along with the signature Keith Haring doodle prints.

Honey Fucking Dijon x Keith Haring

This year would have been Keith Haring’s 54th Birthday and we celebrate him and his artwork with a tribute editorial based on the latest collaboration between Honey Fucking Dijon and the inspired pieces from the Keith Haring collection of work from the years he was active. Honey Fucking Dijon is a streetwear brand that has been birthed from the name of international DJ Honey Dijon and the infamous Adrian Joffe, who is president of Comme Des Garçons International and CEO of Dover Street Market. The two parties coming together makes this a power move that can’t fail with the backing of Joffe, once a brand touches DSM it flies off the shelf like hotcakes and this is what happened to HFD.

Who Is Keith Harding?

Keith Haring was an American artist who specialised in pop art which emerged within the New York graffiti scene during the 1980s. He made sure his doodle style would become animated imagery which quickly found its own lane and was widely renowned as a visual language. He was inspired by his father who taught him the basics of cartooning and used the pop culture around him to create his own style. You would always see pieces of his work pop up on the subways, light posts, buildings, and blank advertising areas.

Artist Meets Artist

While studying at the School Of Visual Arts, Haring began to create his own network of friends and fellow creatives in names such as Kenny Scharf and Jean-Michel Basquiat who have also made their names run deep within the art world for the last 3 decades. After gaining the recognition, he started to scale his work and started taking on commissions and produced over 50 public artworks between 1982 and 1989. Towards the latter part of his career, he started to take on a political and social stance, conveying the themes of anti-crack, anti-apartheid, safe sex, AIDS, and homosexuality within his signature style.
