Blackstock & Weber is hot like fire not only with its mainline loafer offerings but also its arsenal of collaborations. Now the growing New York City-based brand has tossed up a new partnership – this time with Pharrell’s Billionaire Boys Club, specifically its Bee Line.
By linking up with the celebrated streetwear imprint, the new collaboration finds the spot between timeless sentiments and casual, yet contemporary zeal. As such, the offering goes beyond just footwear to include apparel as well. Leading the charge is Blackstock & Weber’s signature Mason Horse Bit loafer, which appears in a camel-colored hairy suede upper, which is sourced from Tanneries Du Puy. Complimenting the textured build is a smooth yellow leather heel and speckled Vibram 1757 sole.
With apparel, the collaboration sees a varsity jacket, brown hoodie and a blue/black plaid wool overshirt. The varsity jacket is a clear highlight with its pine green build, beige leather sleeves and multicolored bee patches.
“My introduction to Bape/BBC Ice Cream was a push toward an infatuation with Japanese Streetwear…It was soon that I discovered it wasn’t all sneakers and all-over print. There was a world of craft and Americana so period precise it almost felt like a costume,” said B&W founder/creative director, Chris Echevarria. “One day an OG put me on to Japanese fashion magazines…Those magazines were my method of transportation and allowed me to see a side of the globe I had never had the pleasure of visiting. Today, those magazines still play that role for me. I think the marketing and tone of this could be an homage to those magazines.”
