WeSC is a streetwear clothing brand that was born in Stockholm in 1999 that designs, markets and sells clothing and accessories in the premium streetwear segment of the international market. Galantis is a music duo of Christian Karlsson (aka Bloodshy, one-third of Miike Snow) and Linus Eklöw (aka Style of Eye).
The duo quickly rose to become one of dance music’s most dynamic and in-demand live performers, boasting over 3 billion cumulative worldwide streams and over 1 billion video views to date. Both parties are collaborating on a collection to launch when they go on tour.
The partnership coincides with a recent #1 spot on Dance Radio in the United States for Galantis’ latest single “Faith”, with country music icon Dolly Parton, featuring Mr. Probz, and the start of the Church of Galantis tour in February. Galantis is expected to release their third full-length album, Church, early this year.
The collection consists of 14 items, including t-shirts, windbreakers, joggers and bomber jackets. These items will be featuring design incorporations from the previous Galantis album and single artwork, as well as visual assets from their live shows.
“It was really great to be working with Christian and Linus (Galantis), the three of us worked closely together on the designs of this collaboration, from color palettes to fabrics and designs.”
Joseph Janus, CEO & Creative Director, WeSC
“We’re so excited to launch our official partnership with WeSC! The collaboration is an idea we’ve been developing for years, and being able to design this collection with a brand from our hometown of Stockholm has been an incredible experience. We wanted all of the pieces to reflect the energy of Galantis while leaning into the unique streetwear style that we’ve always loved from the WeSC brand.” – Galantis
The Capsule Collection will be displayed at the Liberty Fairs show in Las Vegas and is set to release in stores in August 2020. There will be an exclusive drop launching at Footaction, the 14th Street, NYC location, on February 13, with an appearance by Galantis.
