BODA SKINS, the Manchester, UK-based streetwear brand has announced that their next collaboration will be with the extra busy metal masters Metallica. The new line of clothes will feature t-shirts, hoodies and some incredible-looking leather jackets.
The focus of this release is the artwork behind Ride the Lightning, including the iconic electric chair, as well as an update to the 'Soon You'll Please Their Appetite' design and the 'Love 'Til Leather' tape deck design.
The designs look pretty great. Here's a look. Click to enlarge:
For those fashionistas who want to know about the quality of the material, here's what BODA SKINS says:
Using the Metallica prints across their T-shirts and hoodie, BODA's classic jersey is 170gms, as well as being GOTS certified as 100% organic cotton. The hoodie only features the iconic electric chair graphic, but while also featuring 100% organic cotton on the linings, this oversized look goes through a rigorous washing process to prevent shrinkage, while the V-stitched reinforcement ensures the neckline doesn't lose its shape over time.
Introducing the latest Kay Michaels leather, BODA has added two new linings to the world-famous silhouette. Featuring the Ride The Lightning and the tape deck graphics, each lining is made from 100% premium satin.
For the rest of the jacket, the same distinctive details still remain. The jacket is handcrafted from premium sheep leather, with gunmetal hardware and two internal pockets that are made for phones and cardholders. Each jacket has ribbed detailing on the shoulders and is available in the Original and Tall ranges.
The collection launches on August 26th on Bodaskins.com.
