PACSUN AND THE METROPOLITAN MUSEUM OF ART CELEBRATES COLLABORATION WITH NEW FINE ART-INSPIRED CAPSULE COLLECTION
|NEW YORK, June 1, 2023 /NYI/-- Today, Pacsun presents its third collection with The Metropolitan Museum of Art, available now. The collaboration continues with a mission to highlight prized artwork from the legendary museum through covetable apparel with a contemporary design aesthetic.|
Celebrating The Met as a New York landmark, this summer collection features artwork depicting iconic locales across the state, including the Statue of Liberty, the majestic Hudson River and historic Governors Island. Each piece in the collection is designed to capture the grandeur of these renowned destinations, further immersing Pacsun customers into the world of fine art.
This third iteration includes dedicated men's and women's apparel, referencing a selection of works from The Met collection, as well as its logo, adapted onto casual loungewear and trendy, elevated silhouettes. Men's styles consist of an array of Pacsun tees, hoodies, crewnecks and shorts. The women's line integrates the latest must-haves including a matching corset top and midi skirt, a baby tee and bike short set, a reversible quilted jacket, and loungewear. The collection is accessibly priced between $30-$80 and is available in sizes XS-XL.
"We are thrilled to present our third collaboration with the prestigious Metropolitan Museum of Art, showcasing new styles that pay homage to the vibrant city of New York. By bridging fashion and art, we ignite a sense of creativity and cultural appreciation among our community," said Richard Cox, VP of Men's Merchandising. "Additionally, we are excited that for the first time we are providing online early access to the collection for purchases made with Apple Pay, before we make it available more broadly tomorrow."
"Art-inspired apparel provides an unmatched opportunity for creative expression through personal style," said Josh Romm, Head of Licensing & Partnerships at The Met. "This third collection with Pacsun exemplifies our shared goal of bringing famous works of art to everyday life, engaging audiences with The Met collection outside the walls of the museum. We are proud to continue working with Pacsun, and look forward to launching inspiring designs in the future."
Earlier this week, Pacsun hosted an intimate gathering at The Met with special guests of Pacsun to commemorate the exquisite co-branded collection. Guests were treated to a private viewing and tour of the newly unveiled exhibition Van Gogh's Cypresses, on-view at The Met Fifth Avenue through August 27.
