It seems like every single time we check social media, there is news about collaborations coming out, particularly among musicians and fashion designers. But for fans of classic rock or streetwear (or both), Off-White c/o Virgil Abloh has teamed up with Guns N’ Roses for a capsule collection that celebrates their rock & roll album Appetite for Destruction’s 30th year. The band tapped luxury boutique Maxfield and music merch giant Bravado for a pop-up retail event called “Guns N’ Roses Was Here”, which is set to offer merchandise inspired by the legendary band’s classic merch and album artwork of their timeless 1987 album. Joining Off-White for the GNR-inspired collection are cult streetwear brands Palm Angels, Enfant Riches Déprimés, AMIRI, Kelly Cole and MadeWorn.
Abloh is no stranger to musical collaborations, as he has done major projects like art directing Kanye West and Jay-Z’s Watch The Throne and designing hand painted denim jackets and a tee worn by Guns N’ Roses lead singer himself, Axl Rose. In an interview with High Snobiety, the streetwear creative expressed his adoration for the band and how they inspired him to create the designs for the range. “With my capsule collection, which was inspired by the band, my aim is for another generation to feel the impact they had on me, through the clothes”. Off White x Guns n Roses No further news about the collection’s launch date was given. But for any die hard GNR fan who’s heading to the West Coast, the in-store pop-up event will take place until the 18th of August at Maxfield’s store in Los Angeles.   In-article photos: Society of Rock | The New York Times | Hypebeast
