In recent months we have seen many artists release their merchandising become as fashion brands. The movement initiated by Kanye West with “Yeezus” and continued with “The Life Of Pablo” is being imitated by different artist or collectives; Justin Bieber or Rihanna are some of them.

Increasingly the lines between merchandising and fashion are more blurred. It is undeniable that Kanye goes a step ahead but it is also true that other artists and collectives are doing a good job. We do not know if it’s something that is here to stay or just a fad… anyway you can find below who are doing really well job with the merchandising 🙂

Cada vez las líneas entre el merchandising y la moda son más borrosas. Es innegable que Kanye va un paso por delante pero también es verdad que otros artistas y colectivos tampoco lo están haciendo nada mal. No sabemos si es algo que ha llegado para quedarse o simplemente una moda pasajera… de todos modos a continuación os comentamos quienes lo están haciendo realmente bien 🙂
