I am not concerned about her new reality show Teyana and Iman,I need to know where is the new music, T?
I want Teyana Taylor to come through with some hotness cause acrylic nails aside,her debut album VII, gave me all the 90’s R&B realness. Always the Harlem fly girl, Taylor and Italian street wear fashion line GCDS (God Can’t Destroy Streetwear) recently announced that Taylor is the muse behind their latest capsule collection.
The aptly named “Harlem Made” collection pays homage to Taylor’s roots and the neighborhood she represents.
Taylor says the collection is the best of both worlds:
“It’s streetwear, where the hood and high fashion meet. That’s always been me. It’s Harlem made, I am Harlem. So it represents me as well as the culture.”
Giuliano Calza, the founder and designer of GCDS shared why Taylor was the ideal celebrity to partner with:
“I love strong, independent women who have made a name for themselves, with incredible energy.”
Calza said the collection isn’t concerned with being cool or fashionable as much as it is about displaying unique and eclectic style. Calza says he was also inspired by vintage items from the eighties:
“Last summer, I was in Los Angeles and I came across this late Eighties T-shirt with [a picture of] Cher holding a rainbow flag in her hand, and it was one of her tour merchandise items.”
“Modern icons don’t communicate this strong way anymore.”
The capsule collection will include T-shirts, hoodies, bodysuits and accessories, which are priced from $25 USD to $200 USD.
The collection will launch at a party hosted by VFiles on April 6, 2018, followed by the opening of a pop-up store at VFiles headquarters at 12 Mercer Street. Merch will be available at VFiles from April 7th through April 21st and also on gcds.com.
