Wrangler conjures up Freddie Mercury

On the heels of the Queen biographical film “Bohemian Rhapsody,” denim brand Wrangler has launched a Bohemian Rhapsody capsule collection. The collection features tee shirts, jeans, and jackets adorned with Queen lyrics from hit songs like “Don’t Stop Me Now,” “Crazy Little Thing Called Love,” and “Bohemian Rhapsody.” Price points range from $39 to $159 and made in collaboration with music lifestyle brand Lyric Culture.

“Since 1947 we’ve partnered with legendary recording artists, supported music festivals and events all around, and for us we view both music and our brand as a connector,” Jenni Broyles, vice president and general manager of Wrangler Modern Lifestyle said in an interview with Billboard. “We’ve been on the likes of George Strait and Garth Brooks, but we’ve also been on the likes of Jimi Hendrix and Lady Gaga.”

The Wrangler/Bohemian Rhapsody capsule collection is drawing from the fact that Queen lead singer Freddie Mercury wore a pair of the brand’s jeans during Queen’s Live Aid performance in 1985. The capsule collection is now available exclusively on Wrangler’s website.

Marc looks back

Most folks don’t realize that at one time Marc Jacobs was the creative director of Perry Ellis. Back in 1993, Jacobs created an iconic grunge collection for Perry Ellis.

Jacobs is revisiting that iconic 1993 grunge collection with a revamped version of 26 looks. The revisited collection will feature Nirvana-inspired t-shirts, fruit-printed dresses and tops, as well as coats, pants, and matching sets in neons, pastels, stripes and plaid galore. The Redux Grunge lookbook will feature the children of models who originally walked in the 1993 grunge show—Lily McMenamy and Coco Gordon Moore, as well as top models Slick Woods and Gigi Hadid.

Price points range from $95 to $1200. The looks from Redux Grunge are available for pre-order now on the Marc Jacobs e-commerce site.
