Want to own a masterpiece that won't break the bank? Then get your hanss on the latest collab from Comme des Garçons Shirt. CDG designer Rei Kawakubo pays homage to a longstanding collaboration with artist Jean-Michel Basquiat (she cast him as a model in her spring/summer '87 show) by printing some of his most compelling images on tees and dress shirts. Bold and provocative, yet also completely wearable, they're as perfect when paired with a suit as when thrown on with your favorite jeans. But be sure to snatch them up now while they're still affordable—well, when compared to the actual paintings. T-shirts will run you about $150 (around P8,000), while the dress shirts range from $550 to $680 (around P37,000).

Here are 10 of our favorites.
