LOS ANGELES, Nov. 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Live Nation Merchandise today announced a partnership with multi-disciplinary artist, Trevor “Trouble” Andrew to launch his debut street wear line, Real Buy, with a single signature item on November 1, 2018, online at www.therealbuy.com, with additional styles to follow.
Trevor is internationally renowned for his raw street aesthetic and pop art sensibility. He is responsible for the iconic “Gucci Ghost” collaboration with famed Italian fashion house, Gucci and has also collaborated with Reebok, Oakley, Rolling Stones and 2 Chainz. His work has been exhibited at galleries and institutions around the world including Milk Gallery and Deitch Projects in New York City, Dover Street Market Ginza in Tokyo, and more.
Real Buy is the latest release from the artist where he expresses his vision in fashion form. Through his designs he is able to explore our relationship with consumer culture, bending the perception of what is “real.” The inaugural line will include his signature symbols and provocative phrases on seven styles of long sleeve and short sleeve shirts in black or white colorways, maintaining authenticity through his messaging and artistic style, with Short Sleeve Tees for $65 USD and Long Sleeves for $90 USD.
“With Real Buy, it’s another opportunity for me to continue to create and express myself. Fashion is just an extension of my art, and now with Real Buy I can share the experience.” –Trevor Andrew
The Real Buy Pop Longsleeve will be the first style available on the webstore starting November 1, 2018, followed by an in-person debut at the second annual Complexcon in Long Beach, CA (Nov. 1-3, 2018). At Complexcon, the remainder of the Real Buy collection will be made available and Trevor will host free tattoo sessions of his art, his booth will feature a claw machine and provide guests access to surprise Real Buy products, and sporadically every 30 minutes, guests will be granted access to one – of – a- kind $30 pieces from a roped off bin. Custom hand painted jackets for $1500 USD will also only be available on site.
“I’ve always used symbols and storytelling in my art and now I can apply concepts I would create on the street or on the canvas and put them on a simple silhouette. Designing allows me to democratize the experience and give people something real.”
