15 years of drip was celebrated at ComplexCon when BBC ICECREAM decided to drop a commemorative capsule that honored the streetwear brand’s creative relationships with designers NIGO and SK8thing.
BBC came together with the Human Made originator and the storied graphic designer, once again, to wow the masses with another beautiful collection. Proving its flyness, the drip sold out to the last drop at this year’s ComplexCon.
VIPs pulled up to show BBC ICECREAM love including Pusha-T, Takashi Murakami, Shiggy, Brother Nature, The Honest Boyz, Jimmy Gorecki, and Jadakiss.
Reciprocating the appreciative vibes, Pharrell also did a Willy Wonka meet and greet with 20 lucky fans who found a golden ticket in his latest book A Fish Doesn’t Know It’s Wet.
NIGO and Pharrell go way back and have always created dope designs. Still, out of their many cloth-full ventures, BBC ICECREAM, for sure, goes down as one of the most successful.
In the collection, NIGO delivers a timeless piece that encapsulates BBC ICECREAM’S most recognized motifs – the Running Dog, Cones & Bones, and BBC Astronaut Helmet.
A photo-realistic print of three diamond-encrusted chains with the iconic logos dangling and stamped on a stainless white slipover T-shirt solidifies a 15-year creative journey.
The Human Made x BBC ICECREAM 15th Year Anniversary limited edition T-shirt was produced in Japan and it is a nostalgic representation of NIGO’s partnership between him and Pharrell Williams.
The capsule continued to surprise as SK8thing designed a shirt with two interesting colorways. Each color was limited to 75 hand-numbered pieces and anyone who was lucky enough to snag one at ComplexCon is one lucky collector.
In the hands of true BBC ICECREAM connoisseurs is a piece of art designed by a creative who made the visions of Pharrell and NIGO come to fruition.
Sk8thing has helped shape the aesthetics of the apparel brand, is a streetwear legend, and will always be an important element to the very core of BBC ICECREAM.
Rounding out the collection is a revival of the OG Cocoa colorway t-shirt and hoodie which was first seen worn by Pharrell and Chad Hugo in the early 2000s.
This 15th-anniversary drop is, for real, something out of a time machine. Yessir!
