Ron Padgett sent out this announcement:
The Madrid-based fashion house of Loewe has a young designer named Jonathan Anderson who is so crazy about Joe’s work that he has based an entire line on Joe’s work—a profusion of shirts, tee shirts, pants, dresses, coats, sneakers, tote bags, handbags, throw pillows, etc.—with advance publicity in the form of a luxurious book and four videos (one by Anderson himself, one with Paul Auster and Jim Jarmusch, one with Constance Lewallen and Anne Waldman, and one with Joe’s brother John and me). The clothing line will be in Loewe’s stores in June.
If you want to plunge into this extravaganza, here are some links:

Twice — in 1988 and 2015 — a Joe Brainard graced the cover of a volume in the “Best American Poetry” series.
