BILLIONAIRE BOYS CLUB and DOPE are proud to announce a collaboration celebrating the upcoming release of critical hit and Sundance Film Festival favorite “DOPE.” Prior to the nationwide debut of the movie on June 19th, we have teamed up with Los Angeles-based streetwear brand DOPE to bring you a capsule collection consisting of a t-shirt, a women’s tank top, and a sticker pack.
“Since this is our first film, it was only natural to do a collaboration with Pharrell’s clothing company BBC,” says Mimi Valdés, i am OTHER’s Chief Creative Officer who served as a Co-Producer on Dope. “The spirit of the movie and this young cast represents the voice of a generation.”
The collection will be released at DOPE Fairfax on June 5th with a private screening of the film to follow. Customers who purchase the collection on June 5th will be entered into a raffle for exclusive tickets to the private screening that evening.
On June 12th, the collection will be released at the Billionaire Boys Club flagship in New York alongside a meet-and-greet featuring members of the cast.
Pharrell is slated to receive the CFDA’s Fashion Icon Award this year, but because he was unable to make the CFDA Journal shoot, creative director Trey Laird enlisted supermodel Joan Smalls to sport Pharrell’s signature style and eclectic look. Check her out in our BGC hoodie, adidas Superstar jacket, Swarovski Stan Smiths, and the infamous Vivienne Westwood hat. Read More…
