Travis Scott set to unveil quirky fashion collection
Rapper Travis Scott is giving pieces from his capsule collection to fans who buy his new album, Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight.
Rapper Travis Scott is about to unveil a 60-piece fashion collection.
The American hip hop artist announced he was gearing up to launch a line during his performance at the Made in America festival in Philadelphia on Sunday (04Sep16).
Travis, real name Jacques Webster, said the range would include a range of merchandise including T-shirts, hoodies, jackets, du-rags, socks and underwear. He added that the line would boast other more unexpected items, such as comforters, pillows, toilet tissue and toothbrushes.
And in a further announcement, the 24-year-old musician told fans that if they purchase his latest album, Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight, they will receive a free item of their choice from the range from Monday. However, as of Tuesday the collection had yet to be launched on his website, travisscott.com.
The Houston-native is no stranger to the fashion scene, having attended Givenchy’s Fall 2016 menswear collection show in January, where he was snapped backstage chatting with models Lexi Boling and Issa Lish. And the High Fashion rapper previously designed capsule ranges for his Days Before Rodeo album and 90210 track.
Earlier this year Travis also teamed with London-based label Maharishi on the “Year of the Cowboy” capsule collection, which draws inspiration from Travis’ debut 2015 studio album Rodeo and his Texas roots. The range included a jacket, trousers and a T-shirt, featuring an image of the star riding a bronco alongside: Exhibit A: Maharishi La Flame.
Along with his surprise merchandise announcement, Travis made a memorable performance at the Made in America event, with the rapper choosing to perform his songs Antidote and 3005 from a tree above the crowd.
He also spent some time at the festival rubbing shoulders with former U.S. President Bill Clinton, and tweeted a photo of himself and Clinton with the caption “Me and da homie.”
