"Bash" inspired by son Sebastian
The original vintage t-shirt company, Junk Food Clothing, has teamed up with hip-hop star Wiz Khalifa on a collection named after his son's nickname, BASH by Junk Food. The collection--launching on JunkFoodClothing.com with an in-store event on Saturday, October 15th-- includes men's, boy's, and toddler tees, sweatshirts, bomber jackets as well as tote bags and other accessories. The kid's line ranges in price from $35-$150 and men's at $45-250. Each design was hand-picked by Wiz and Bash, taking from different elements in their relationship (nicknames, inside jokes, etc.) and celebrating their creativity and extensive imaginations.
Junk Food Clothing will be hosting an event at its flagship store on Abbot Kinney in Los Angeles for the release of the exclusive collection. The store opens to the public from 4pm-7pm. Stop by for a meet and greet with Wiz Khalifa while the first 50 guests receive a complimentary BASH by Junk Food tote and limited edition coloring book with each purchase. Junk Food and Wiz Khalifa will also be running a social media sweepstakes where one lucky winner will receive a personal meet and greet along with tickets to an upcoming show.
