I fell for the work of Keith Haring INSTANTLY in the early 90s on a visit to the Queens Museum with my Mom. She observed my CONSTANT doodling and thought I would enjoy his art. Thus began my love affair with the most brilliant doodler EVER, Mr. Keith Haring!
Here are just a few of the reasons I’m a Keith Haring SUPERFAN:
- I still have pins from his Lafayette St. POP SHOP that I purchased on a trip in High School!
- I collect ALL his polo and t-shirt collaborations from Uniqlo!
- I found the most gorgeous smelling red “Running Heart” candle from one of my fave stores to shop for gifts, Maison 24! After the candle was done, I washed it out and it’s now an adorable pen cup on my desk.
- I snuck into the infamous ARENA party at the PALLADIUM NIGHTCLUB (now an NYU Dorm) when I was 17 to see his amazing mural on the dance floor! It was MAGNIFICENT! (Sorry Mom!)
This collection is my favorite for Hanky Panky to date! The combination of my MOST favorite artist and my FAB employer resulted in true LACE LOVE. Our thongs, boyshorts and camisoles emblazoned with Haring’s iconic HEART print were such a delight to style at our photoshoot. I hope my styling did Mr. Haring justice—a small tribute to a man who inspired my career!
