Billionaire Boys Club (BBC) is a men’s streetwear clothing line established by Pharrell Williams and NIGO in 2005 rooted in Japan, aims to offer high-quality streetwear items. The brand is known for its Spaceman logo, incepted to fully encompass the brand’s ethos, that money wasn’t a part of the inspiration as opposed to what the name may insulate. The attraction of the brand, apart from its quality, is the unique design styles that are offered in very limited quantities. Jay Z later entered a partnership with BBC in order to distribute the clothes through his Rocawear line. BBC has expanded their line to include childrenswear and womenswear, with the Billionaire Girls’ Club, which is designed by Youn. Another diffusion line was launched, called Bee Line, a higher end and more mature and exclusive line, which was launched in collaboration with Mark McNairy.
