The New Streetwear Collection that Honors Aaliyah

Missed Sourcing Journal’s Virtual Sourcing Summit? It's not too late to view all keynotes and panels from the two days. Watch on demand now.

High-end sportswear label The Fan Of teamed up with UK retailer Selfridges to create a limited-edition line inspired by the late singer Aaliyah.

The unique, streetwear-focused collection is a part of Selfridge’s Music Matters campaign, a store-wide campaign celebrating music through a number of product offerings, events, concerts and more.

The 11-piece collection offers up edgy, utilitarian looks and includes an oversized denim jacket with an image of Aaliyah on the back panel, baseball hats, short and long-sleeved T-shirts, sweatshirts, hoodies and a bomber jacket. Each item in the collection features printed lyrics and airbrushed portraits of the singer.

“Back when I was a teen, MTV was a cultural phenomenon. We devoured music videos. Everything I learned about dressing up, I pretty much learned from pop, rock and hip-hop culture,” said Elle Azhdari, co-founder and creative director of The Fan Of. “I knew when Aaliyah dropped ‘Age Ain’t Nothing But a Number’ and ‘One in a Million’ records, I couldn’t wait for the music videos and it wasn’t long until I was stealing my brother’s Hilfiger jacket/sweats and pairing them with bandanas, crop tops and Nike’s.”

The line is available online now at thefanof.com and in-stores at Selfridges locations. The collection retails for $66 to $1,054. The line will debut in the U.S. at H. Lorenzo in Los Angeles this month.
