METALLICA x BILLABONG Launch Ride the Lightning Collection
The new line takes the classic Ride the Lightning design and subtly infuses a Billabong logo into the lightning emblazed on a t-shirt, hoodie, longsleeve, denim jacket and surf gear.
This is a five-part collection, so there are still two parts left.
Here is the press release on the collection:
As for the "Ride The Lightning" collection itself, the short-sleeved t-shirt made from ring-spun cotton displays the Metallica logo in the electrified style of the band's genre-defining album. Rendered in stark white lightning bolts on dark background, Billabong's crested wave logo makes the collab official. Identical lightning artwork also features on the long-sleeved shirt — including extra art details on the sleeves — and on the hooded fleece top crafted from 70 percent cotton and 30 percent polyester.
Taking the collection into street style, the cotton corduroy jacket features "Ride The Lightning" album cover art — an electric chair in the midst of lightning bolts — as a back print. The premium jacket is finished in potassium stone wash with applique and embroidery details including a Billabong patch on the sleeve.
For those looking to jump in the water, a new surf trunk crafted from 90 percent recycled polyester and 10 percent elastane blends proven performance with "Ride The Lightning" artwork in a 19-inch athletic fit. And as the ultimate upgrade for metal-minded surfers, the third drop contains Billabong's high-end Revolution neoprene wetsuit with a full-body "Ride The Lightning" graphene sublimation print.
