Iggy Pop Collaborates With Billabong For Spring '18 Collection

OK, we're not all running for the beach during the winter season. But, if you're from Southern California... we have a few heatwaves here and there and many of us still surf in December. 

Billabong just released the Iggy Pop x Billabong LAB collection, an exclusive apparel and accessory collaboration with one of the world's most legendary and iconic musicians.

Once a streetwalking cheetah with a heart full of Napalm, these days Iggy's more notorious for lounging all day at the beach or pool in boardshorts. "I usually wake up and stay nude for three or four hours," Iggy says. "And when I feel like getting formal, I'll put on boardshorts. Life is better in boardshorts."

The collaboration with Billabong, whose Spring '18 collection is inspired by the punk soundtrack of the late '80s and '90s is fitting as Iggy's presence is laced throughout every surf and skate session of that era. 

The Iggy Pop x Billabong LAB collection was largely inspired by Iggy's gig posters that appeared in the music venue halls of the '80s and '90s. These prints are an authentic tribute and a graphic history of Iggy's legendary lust for life and thread the entire collection of boardshorts, graphic tees and pullovers. The wetsuit top titled, "Wild Thing Glide Skin," cross-pollinates Billabong's surf DNA with Iggy's proto-punk attitude. This memorable tiger print leather jacket from the seminal album, Raw Power, has been redesigned and is now waterproof and ocean ready.
