A new collection at the Rolling Stones’ RS No.9 Carnaby store in Soho, London, and online, recalls the era of the turn of the 1970s that produced such classic tracks as “Wild Horses” and “Tumbling Dice.”
The AW21 collection includes custom T-shirts, sweatshirts, hoodies, motorcycle jackets and other items such as leather gloves and playing cards, featuring 70s-inspired graphics and fonts that reference “Tumbling Dice,” from 1972’s Exile on Main St. double album, and “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” from 1969’s Let It Bleed.
Also featured are luxe leathers and shearling jackets with the band’s world-famous tongue-and-lips logo, designed by John Pasche, on the back. The jackets are a nod to those worn by the Stones on many world tours, with the addition of contemporary design. The range also looks ahead to the festive season with “a fun take on the Christmas jumper” in which the logo dons a Santa hat.
‘Who the f*** are the Rolling Stones?’
There are metallic embossed card-holders and other gift ideas such as Rolling Stones playing cards, and even a doggy accessory set. One of the new AW21 long-sleeved T-shirts bears the inscription “Who the f*** are the Rolling Stones anyway?’”
AW21 joins the existing Carnaby Classic core collection and the Stones Red range made in the official Pantone colour, as used for the tongue and lips logo. The collection is available exclusively at the global flagship store at 9 Carnaby Street, London, and for worldwide shipping.
The Stones’ No Filter tour of the US continues at the Nissan Stadium in Nashville on Saturday (October 9), before visiting the SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles on October 14. Dates continue until November 20. The 40th anniversary editions of their Tattoo You album are released on October 22.
