Lifestyle brand, Italia Independent, celebrated its collaboration with Hip Hop icon Nas and Sony Music, in honor of the Ghostbusters movie, at the brand’s New York boutique in Soho at 85 Mercer Street.
Thirty years after Ghostbusters took the world by storm, the beloved franchise makes its long-awaited return. To commemorate its highly anticipated release, Italia Independent and Nas curated a special capsule of eight models of sunglasses inspired by the film’s notable characters.
The limited-edition Italia Independent x Ghostbusters collection includes iconic and oversize frames, as well as classic shapes with movie-inspired digital printed patterns. The collection will be sold at Italia Independent boutiques, on the brand's e-commerce platform italiaindependent.com, at the online store hypebeast.com and at select retail partners including Ron Herman in Los Angeles and colette in Paris.
During the event, Nas addressed the crowd regarding his experience collaborating with Italia Independent. In his remarks he stated: “Ghostbusters was one of my favorite childhood movies, and it was important to me to partner with a brand like Italia Independent for this collaboration because they understand style and culture.
I wanted to design a collection that speaks to the nostalgia of that era while keeping it fresh fun, sleek and wearable.”
