Is designers collaborating on band merch the hot new trend? On Monday, Gucci designer Alessandro Michele and Harry Styles dropped a new limited-edition t-shirt for the singer's new album Fine Line, ahead of his 2020 international tour with Jenny Lewis and Koffee. This comes after Taylor Swift and Stella McCartney unveiled an entire capsule collection of merchandise for Loverback in August, filled with lyric quotes and tie-dye. Even more recently, Raf Simons and The xx celebrated 10 years of xx with a merch collection. Three-times makes a trend, and this is definitely one we can get behind.
This minimal white t-shirt — which features a red and black sketch akin to what lovebirds would carve into the bark of a tree in a 1950s film — will cost you $75, and is only available online until Thursday, December 19. According to a press release, the shirt is "eco-conscious," and comes along with a digital copy of Styles' album. Unfortunately, even if you order right now, there's no way you'd have this new designer merch in time to wrap up and stash underneath the Christmas tree; Styles' web-store states it will not be shipped until January 2020.
Check out the Harry Styles x Alessandro Michele t-shirt below, available for pre-order via Styles' merch store now.
