Fashion And Music Meet For AW14
Celebrity-worn streetwear brand Starter Black Label is hoping to attract both music and fashion fans by using the famous parental advisory censorship logo on its latest collection for AW14.
The new collection comprises of printed t-shirts, hats and a pullover hoodie, each carrying the notice first used in 1985 by the music industry to warn of explicit content on vinyl and CD releases.
Apparel maintains a monochrome colour palette, while snapbacks come in a mixture of red, black and white styles as well as an all-black design.
Fabrics used across the range include the trademark Starter premium wool blend crown with raised logo embroidery.
Two t-shirts also feature a design with crossed microphones, referencing the label’s association with the music scene.
Founded in Connecticut in 1971, Starter has attached itself to several high sporting events and teams, providing the kit for major league basketball, football, baseball and hockey teams.
Aside from sport, the brand has also gained a following in the American hip hop community, starting in the early 1990s with campaigns with DJ Jazzy Jeff. Today it collaborates with the likes of Wretch 32, MTV and Rocawear.
The Parental Advisory collection is available to buy now in JD Sport stores and online. Snapbacks and t-shirts are priced at £30, with the hoody the top priced piece at £60.
