Two of the leading street style and streetwear brands have decided to join forces for the first time for a good cause. Balenciaga and Yeezy are the brands we are referring to. This alliance has arisen no more and no less than because of the death of the north American rapper, DMX.
On this occasion, the two brands have decided to collaborate together to design a T-shirt tribute to the artist. The T-shirt itself has been designed by Demna Gvsalia, the actual creative director of Balenciaga, and launched by Yeezy, the brand of his partner Kanye West.
This long-sleeved, retro-style, heavyweight cotton garment features a screen-printed portrait of the rapper on the front, accompanied by two prints, one on each sleeve, with his respective dates of birth and death: “12.18.1970” and “04.09.2021”. Finally, on the back of the T-shirt, we can find the phrase “IN LOVING MEMORY”.
