Guns N Roses Was Here exclusive merch coming to Maxfield and Bravado

The group has partnered with Maxfield and Bravado for exclusive merchandising

In celebration of the 30th anniversary of their ground-breaking debut album, Appetite for Destruction, Guns N’ Roses is pleased to announce ‘Guns N’ Roses Was Here,’ an exclusive retail event in partnership with Maxfield and Bravado that will live in the famed Los Angeles boutique from August 11 -18th.

‘Guns N’ Roses Was Here’ gives past, present and future GNR fans a new interpretation of their celebrated 1987 album with limited-edition capsule collections. Maxfield and Bravado sought out top collaborators ranging from unexpected streetwear brands to designers deeply rooted in GNR’s style, to bring new life to the classic artwork that has transcended time.

“Music has been a crucial influence in my life since a very young age,” states Peter Utz, Chief Branding Office of Maxfied. “Maxfield’s first iteration of this type of model evolved with our close friends Daft Punk and the results surpassed all expectations. After that, it felt natural to try and work with artists I have always admired and Guns N Roses was at the top of that list. Their interpretation of this series will be dedicated to limited-edition pieces created specifically for the occasion. It’s been incredible to work with the designers, GNR and their management team to celebrate such an iconic album. A very special thanks to Fernando Lebeis for all of his dedication to making this happen”

Cult streetwear brands Off-White, Palm Angels, Enfant Riches Déprimés join classic GNR inspired designers AMIRI, Kelly Cole and MadeWorn to create an unprecedented curated collection that will excite long-time fans of the band as well as engage the next generation of fans. “With my capsule collection, which was inspired by the band, my aim is for another generation to feel the impact they had on me, through the clothes” states Virgil Abloh, Creative Director for Off-White while Francesco Ragazzi of Palm Angel “loves music and being able to have my brand connected to something so iconic like Guns N’ Roses is a milestone for me and Palm Angels. It’s part of the culture.”

As a longtime fan of the brand, Mike Amiri, Founder & Creative Director of AMIRI was especially compelled to participate and states, “As a brand, we rarely find the synergy needed to participate in an effective collaboration. A good amount of the AMIRI aesthetic is directly influenced by my love for the band and I’m really proud to be working on a project so close to my heart. ”

As Axl Rose has worn many of Kelly Cole’s t-shirt designs, Kelly states that he “wanted to make something that stayed true to what we do aesthetically, and also bring the GNR feeling and iconography into it.”

The group started the second North American leg of its Not In This Lifetime World Tour last week in St. Louis — their first performance in the city since the famous Riverport Riots 22 years ago. The group is set for Miami tomorrow (August 8th) with multiple stops in New York, Toronto and Southern California before wrapping on November 29th with a third show in Los Angeles.
