SONY MUSIC’S MERCHANDISING COMPANY THE THREAD SHOP TEAMS WITH IGGY POP TO CREATE NEW COLLECTION EXCLUSIVELY FOR BILLABONG
Sony Musicߣs innovative merchandising company The Thread Shop announces their partnership with music icon Iggy Pop today! The apparel and accessory collaboration is an exclusive collection for Billabong.
Once a streetwalking cheetah with a heart full of Napalm, these days Iggy’s more notorious for lounging all day at the beach or pool in boardshorts. “I usually wake up and stay nude for three or four hours,” Iggy says. “And when I feel like getting formal, Iߣll put on boardshorts. Life is better in boardshorts.”
The collection was largely inspired by Iggyߣs gig posters that appeared in the music venue halls of the 80ߣs and 90ߣs. These prints are an authentic tribute and a graphic history of Iggyߣs legendary lust for life and thread the entire collection of boardshorts, graphic tees and pullovers. The wetsuit top titled, Éc;Wild Thing Glide Skin,Éd; cross-pollinates Billabong’s surf DNA with Iggy’s proto-punk attitude. This memorable tiger print leather jacket from the seminal album, Raw Power, has been redesigned and is now waterproof and ocean ready.
This collection is a 17-piece collection that spans across Boardshorts, Apparel and Accessories and is available HERE.
Billabong Announces Exclusive Collaboration With Iggy Pop The Iggy Pop Limited Collection Now Available Globally
Billabong today released the Iggy Pop x Billabong LAB collection, an exclusive apparel and accessory collaboration with one of the world’s most legendary and iconic musicians.
Once a streetwalking cheetah with a heart full of Napalm, these days Iggy’s more notorious for lounging all day at the beach or pool in boardshorts. “I usually wake up and stay nude for three or four hours,” Iggy says. “And when I feel like getting formal, I’ll put on boardshorts. Life is better in boardshorts.”
The collaboration with Billabong, whose Spring ’18 collection is inspired by the punk soundtrack of the late ’80s and ’90s is fitting as Iggy’s presence is laced throughout every surf and skate session of that era. Scott Hargraves, VP of Global Marketing at Billabong, elaborates on the relationship, “We are honored to be working so closely with Iggy on this curated men’s and women’s collection. He’s a true cultural icon, and we hope to pay homage to this living legend through our collaboration.”

YUNGBLUD RELEASES NEW TRACK “TIN PAN BOY”
The release of the nineteen-year-old, Yorkshire-born artist’s new track comes just days after he unveiled the official video for “I Love You, Will You Marry Me.”
Speaking about the inspiration of the new track, Yungblud says: “I spent most of my childhood on Denmark Street, Soho, London, it’s where I first picked up a guitar. At the moment there is a massive redevelopment going on which will eventually force a lot of independent businesses out of the area – I have a real connection to all the music and art stores and to see people trying to tear out its soul makes me super upset and really pissed off. FUCK THAT! Tin Pan Alley is where the foundations of British rock and roll and the pop music that we know today were built. Everyone from Jagger to Lennon to the Sex Pistols used to hang out there. To sit back and watch the transformation happen without saying something is not an idea that I’m into.”
“Tin Pan Boy” once again shows off Yungblud’s unique blend of alternative rock: poetry, crunching guitar-hooks and energetic break beats – all brought together with his own fierce determination to make a serious dent in pop culture.
