Björn Borg in collaboration with fashion industry’s most talked about designer Charles Jeffrey LOVERBOY
Swedish sports fashion brand Björn Borg drop their new collaboration – an underwear capsule created by Charles Jeffrey LOVERBOY. Charles Jeffrey releases his first underwear collaboration, a limited edition collection of men’s printed underwear, with Björn Borg. The capsule features three limited-edition prints developed from signature mark-making which the designer and illustrator describes as his ‘second language.’ The prints, entitled Scream, Squiggle and Squirm, appear as all-over prints and waistband designs across a collection LOVERBOY fans will recognise as a celebration of the label’s visual language.
In collaboration with photographer Dexter Lander, Jeffrey – an established stylist in his own right – is behind a colourful and comedic campaign celebrating the product. Of the campaign, Jeffrey comments: “It almost happened by accident, but whilst on set we started realising that what we were building was a kind of mash-up of some of the visual cues of eccentric Britishness that I love the most: Culture Club, The Mighty Boosh, a bit of David Bowie. What ties them all together is colour, a sense of performance, a dispensing with gender norms. It's a lot of things I love - remixed.” The collection can be found in Björn Borg stores, bjornborg.com, Selfridges and other exclusive retailers. Prices start at £35
