Aside from a few features and a short EP in My Dear Melancholy, The Weeknd has been pretty quiet this year. His fans continue to speculate about what the artist may be plotting as his next move and while nothing has materialized yet, the hints are certainly there. He was a prominent guest on two the biggest albums this year in Travis Scott’s Astroworld and the Kendrick Lamar-curated Black Panther: The Album but fans are eager to hear a new full-length from the Torontonian. Whether or not we’ll get it this year is beyond us but considering his latest move, Abel seems to be just fine letting his supporters look back on his extensive catalog.
Many the artist’s fans are public about wanting him to embrace the darker side in his music and much those vibes were apparent throughout Trilogy and Kiss Land. With today being the 5-year anniversary Kiss Land‘s release, Abel decided to release some new merch inspired by the album on his website. If you’re interested, you better act fast because it’s only available in limited quantities.
The album was heavily influenced by Japan and you can easily see how that is being tied in with the merch as Japanese writing is apparent on most pieces. The highlight the collection is a collaboration with Medicom Toy for a new “Be@rbrick.” Some the hoodies are already sold out so we repeat, if you’re feeling any the pieces, cop them now before it’s too late. Shop here.
If you missed out on the first drop yesterday but you’re still interested in getting some Travis Scott merch, you’re in luck because the next batch products has just become available. Earlier this week, it was announced that La Flame would be releasing a 28-piece capsule collection to coincide with the release his long-awaited album Astroworld. With us only a few hours away from the ride our lifetimes, we suggest you get your gear ordered quickly because just like yesterday’s shirt, hoodie and cap, these will be gone in the next 24 hours.
Introducing three new pieces to the collection, fans have the option copping a hoodie, a long sleeve t-shirt or a skateboard deck. Or, if you’re a diehard fan, you’ve probably already bought all three. Going head-on into a theme park feel, Travis’ Astroworld-branded merch features sayings like, “Look Mom I Can Fly,” and “The Sights Are Vivid.” Much like yesterday’s release, each purchase comes with a pre-order code for tickets to a future Travis Scott tour. The long sleeve features glow-in-the-dark graphics, instantly turning you into the coolest kid in the club when you put it on.
Check out the new pieces on the artist’s website and let us know if you’re copping anything from today’s drop. Astroworld arrives in just a few hours!
If you’re as hyped as I am for Astroworld to finally drop, you’ll be excited to know that the first collection from his new merch capsule has ficially released. If you’re messing with some the pieces, though, you better hurry because they’re only available for a very limited time.
Announcing yesterday that the 28-piece collection would be sold over a period 9 days, with each item only being available for a very limited amount time, the first 5 products have ficially been unveiled. Trav tweeted about the ficial drop, letting everybody know they have only 24 hours to cop before the merch is never available again so, I repeat, if you’re into it, this could be your last chance.
Today’s shirts are the dark variety, embracing the “night” theme the alternate album cover with a black t-shirt, hoodie, and cap available. Of course, all them have Astroworld branding with “Wish You Were Here” embroidered. Also available are a vinyl and physical CD copy the album, which will be shipped in 6 to 8 weeks. If you read the fine print, each purchase comes with a presale code for an upcoming tour, allowing his most loyal fans to be among the first to cop tickets.
I’ve already bought my t-shirt (and I’ll probably get another one tomorrow tbh.) Are you planning on copping from today’s drop? Check out the merch here.
Typically, having Kanye West’s name associated with your product was a sure-fire way to guarantee that it would sell out within minutes. Kanye’s clothing line with Adidas, “Yeezy”, has been nearly impossible to find at retail prices since it began in 2013. However, for one Australian sportswear company, Kanye’s name didn’t help them one bit.
According to The Sydney Morning Herald, a planned Saturday morning event for the launch a collaborative line between YEEZY and Australian sportswear brand 2XU, was cancelled after just 45 minutes when customers failed to show up.
The collab between YEEZY and 2XU, which contained $550 neoprene leggings and $500 bike shorts, was frequently promoted by Kim Kardashian on Instagram, as she posted several pictures herself wearing the leggings on Instagram, and even appeared on a magazine cover wearing the collection.
Still, that wasn’t enough to draw anyone to the event. The store promoted the event by saying that supply was extremely limited both in-store and online, and had planned a ballot just to win the right to purchase the gear.
Back in 2016, Australian teens lined up around the block for the chance to buy some Kanye’s “Saint Pablo tour merchandise, so perhaps the fashionistas Sydney are just less interested in designer sportswear. However, a source says that the likely reason for the line doing so badly is Kanye’s unpopular statements regarding Donald Trump and slavery.
Down the street from the empty 2XU store, teens were, in fact, lining up; for a chance to buy a pair $200 Ksubi jeans.
