After recently teasing its latest music-themed collection, Sean John celebrates its 20th anniversary with the ‘Gallery Collection Tee Shirts’ for Spring/Summer 2018. The all-white T-shirt collection pays tribute to music legends of past and present that shifted the style and pop culture. Each icon — Aaliyah, Chaka Khan, Jimi Hendrix, Marvin Gaye, P. Diddy, and The Notorious B.I.G. — is featured in portrait-style screen prints on the front of the shirt. “Music has an unparalleled feeling that often times cannot be communicated through words; a feeling that transcends time and takes you back to where you were at that exact moment.

Sean John has recognized the influence that music has had on all facets of life since the brand launched in 1998. We chose to focus on some of the most famous names in music history for our Gallery Collection Tee Shirts: Chaka Kahn, Aaliyah, Marvin Gaye, Biggie Smalls, just to name a few. These performers have had such a profound impact on the music industry and as a “fashiontainment” brand, we felt that it was very important that we do our part in helping to shine a light on their legacy,” said Sean John President Jeff Tweedy.

Browse through the lookbook above, and head over to the Macy’s site to purchase your favorite shirt for $39 USD.
