“This editorial highlights the intersection of popular art, athletics, and social commentary.

The works and likeness of Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Muhammad Ali, and most recently, Marvel's Black Panther have all utilized their platforms to bring attention to social issues — particularly race and discrimination.

The boxing scene represents the conflict between brothers — fighting for understanding and common ground. Muhammad Ali was famous for utilizing his fame from boxing to address the racial issues of his time, many of which are still present today.

The feud ends with both combatants standing in solidarity, understanding that unity is key, arms crossed in front of their chests. This symbol is seen throughout history, famously represented by Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat who represent the unbreakable bond between brothers. Most recently, Marvel's Black Panther utilized this symbolic stance to represent the solidarity between neighboring tribes in Wakanda.

This editorial’s intent is to continue the conversation — bringing these worlds together in a modern way, while adding an element of mystique and style that characterizes the brand so well.”
