Music merchandising company The Thread Shop has teamed up with denim and streetwear brand Prps and the Miles Davis estate to release a new collaborative collection.
The limited-edition collection was designed to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the seminal album Birth Of The Cool which redirected the trajectory of jazz; the 60th anniversary of the Kind Of Blue, Davis’ landmark recording which remains the best-selling jazz record ever; and the 50th anniversary of the revolutionary album In A Silent Way, where Davis went electric, creating a whole new musical genre.
Featuring a selection of iconic Miles Davis imagery on classic tee shirts, hoodies, and jackets, the collection marries the street art-centric roots of Prps and the musical genius of Davis, who reinvented music every 10 years. With embroidery, patchwork details on the outside and inside and dynamic graphics, Prps bringing Miles Davis to life through fashion.
The Miles Davis anniversaries and milestones will also be marked, including the theatrical release of critically acclaimed documentary Miles Davis: Birth Of The Cool, by filmmaker Stanley Nelson, which premiered at Sundance this year. The film will be broadcast as part of PBS’s legendary American Master series in early 2020.
