Vilebrequin is paying tribute to the Rolling Stones with a limited edition life of treasures than any and every groupie will love.
The luxe swim shorts and mens beachwear company founded in St. Tropez has created the limited edition Moorea—the classic house cut—and a flat-belted Merise…the opening acts, if you will. There’s also a high-voltage tee with the Stones’ iconic symbol of lips and tongue, as created by John Pasche.
The tribute collection, which features prints in a patchwork of Rolling Stones posters, is now available in the Saatchi Gallery boutique in London as of April 26, and will become globally available in Vilbrequin stores come June.
The new products first launched as part of Exhibitionism – The Rolling Stones (as delivered by DHL), an exhibit that pays homage to band members Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood and their 50 years of rock.
Unlocking their vast archive, this exhibition is a Rolling Stones treasure trove, curated over nine themed gallery spaces with 500 items from original stage costumes, rare instruments and lyric books, backstage and touring paraphernalia, album art, photography, stage designs, personal diaries, and never before released audio and behind-the-scenes footage. Celebrating the Stones’ artistic collaborations in music, art and design, fashion and film, Exhibitionism features original works on display from an array of artists as diverse as Andy Warhol, Alexander McQueen, Prada, Dior, Ossie Clark, L’Wren Scott, David Bailey, Michael Cooper, Jeff Koons, Walton Ford, Shepard Fairey and Martin Scorsese, to name a few. In the world’s biggest exhibition on the Rolling Stones, highlights include a recreation of their recording studio complete with original instruments and interactive mixing desks, an immersive realistic reconstruction of ‘Edith Grove’, their first shared flat in Chelsea, and culminates in a mind-blowing backstage and 3D concert experience.
The exhibit will run through September 4.
