Proving my headline to be 100% accurate, here’s a photo of Iggy Pop teasing us about the debut of his collaborative clothing line with Sailor Jerry, due out in October. The line will feature three items, and I’m betting that at least one of them will be something Iggy ain’t got no time for, some sort of shirt.
Simonon’s sweet leather jacket ran a cool $2300, so I’m sure that Iggy’s line will have at least one if-I-sell-my-kidney-it-will-be-mine kind of wearable. And if it’s a shirt, it’ll probably look like this:
Custom heavy metal band logo jacket by Emmase. $50. Needs more röck döts!
I can’t hate on this custom jean jacket (even though it needs more PATCHES!) by very metal Etsy-r, Emmase. And that’s because the 1984 version of me is still very much alive, and currently stealing my Mom’s credit card to buy one. Here’s a few more from Emmase’s shop to help further induce your incoming 80′s fashion flashback. And since you might be saying $50 is a little steep for this sharpie/denim work of art , check out these high end heavy metal jackets by designer, DNA.
Artist/blogger Dennis Dread, shot pictures of metalheads at Wacken sporting their finest patched up jackets and vests. Dread snapped this photo of Mr. Sadism Unbound (above), and declared him the winner of his “Wacken patch-jacket contest”. Mr. Sadism might be 1000% hard core dedicated to patches, but he’s also slightly fucking completely terrifying.
Lastly, here’s a Tumblr with some pretty sweet images of “battle jackets”. Kind of a one-up on the patch jacket, but without the sleeves in most cases, and something I’m planning on rocking this summer. This hand-painted Slayer one above is pretty impressive. And in case you were wondering, yes, there is a “Rate My Battle Jacket” page on Facebook. Thank you Internet. Sometimes you know exactly what I need.
Bombay Sapphire Bar Bag. By Barking Irons. $500. For GGG and Wonder Woman who are as appalled as I am that this hooch inspired handbag does not include a bottle of the sweet Juniper nectar. Sacrilege!
This sweet hooch-y handbag by Barking Irons (in conjunction with Bombay Sapphire), comes with a Bar Spoon, Paring Knife, Juicer, Muddler, Japanese Strainer, Ice Pick, Jigger, Traditional Strainer, Shaker & Glass. It does not come with: BOTTLE OF BOMBAY SAPPHIRE(!). I still want one…
Iggy Pop’s old face is the new face of Paco Rabanne’s fragrances.
In addition to print ads for Paco Rabanne’s new scent, Black XS L’Excès, IggyPop will also appear in television commercials for the fragrance. The commercials will air on television and in movies theaters in France starting in January. And don’t hate, I’m sure Black XS L’Excès smells like glitter, blood, Corinthian leather, and coco-butter. Word.
Vincent Gallo for G-Star Raw clothing and couture.
I have been wondering what Vincent Gallo, one of my favorite Hollyweird bad-boys has been up to lately. After a quick search, I found these photos from Gallo’s new print campaign for Amsterdam based, G-Star Raw clothing. I’m pretty sure the pants in the photo above say “Vinny Gallo”, making them truly one of a kind, just like Gallo.
Then I hopped over to Gallo’s website, which is always a fun time, and saw that his site has a classified ad’s section. Strangely, it wasn’t a wish list full of weirdness, but a list of rare guitars, microphones and various audio equipment. On the page Gallo says that he doesn’t want the page to “turn into a waste of his time, or he will never direct another film.”
Naturally, Gallo’s classified ad threat had me a little worried about his checking account balance, so I hit his merch shop to see how business was going.
Handmade “I FUCKED VINCENT GALLO” t-shirt. $150.
Thankfully, most of the merch in Gallo’s web-store is sold-out. Including the handmade “I FUCKED VINCENT GALLO” t-shirt, above. Operation “Save Gallo” has been aborted!
