Common and MicroSoft=Softwear

So here’s a fashion collab we never saw coming: Rapper Common has partnered with Microsoft to create a clothing line called Softwear.

The line debuts in late December in specialty stores nationwide and t-shirts are expected to retail for around $32 a pop.

It’s pretty much what you would expect from the marriage of a rapper and a computer company - ’80s-inspired graphic tees with a tech twist, so picture green Doogie Howser-ish typeface artfully arranged to create various images. Or, in the words of Common, shirts that make you go, “Man, this is incredible artwork and I want to wear this and I want it to reflect beauty, creativity and humanity…look fly but say something, too. So some of the shirts got messages, some of it bring…all of it got a purpose.”

I like Common. He's positive, one of the good guys. So congrats. Do what you do!

Thank you Haley Phelan for this article.
