ICEBERG to launch co-designed capsule collection with Kailand O. Morris
Italian ready-to-wear label, ICEBERG has tapped artist Kailand O. Morris, son of music legend Stevie Wonder & fashion designer Kai Milla for a co-designed capsule collection.
ICEBERG and Kailand O. Morris come together for an exploration of culture and wearable transcendence with a collection which embodies ICEBERG’s sport-luxe and underground attitude with a Hype Psychedelic spin. Launching in July 2021, the collection encompasses an assortment of puffer jackets, cargo pants, anorak vests, hoodies, t-shirts, baseball caps, socks and more, available in light taupe, steel blue, vibrant orange and chromatic whites and blacks, adorned with hand-drawn designs by artist, VAMEEE.
ICEBERG’s partnership with Kailand began when one of managers Shawn Mann arranged for him to walk in the brand’s menswear Spring/Summer 2019 runway show during London Fashion Week two summers ago. He has since been featured in campaigns for the brand and co-hosted an event including the release of a co-designed t-shirt with the brand last Fall, all in benefit of the Watts Empowerment Center in Los Angeles. He now joins talented designer and ICEBERG’s Creative Director, James Long, with experience interning under Kim Jones at Dior and mentorship from Kanye West, to create the capsule collection of ready to wear and accessories.
"I love Kailand’s energy and creativity! I really enjoyed working with him and creating such a fun collection together. The capsule takes Kailand’s inspiration and infuses it with the Italian ICEBERG aesthetic. I am very proud of the outcome!” – James Long.
“I’m really passionate about creating and bringing all my ideas to life and have spent the last two years learning and studying fashion. I was given the opportunity to go to Paris and intern with Kim Jones at Dior and am so grateful for his mentorship. Now that I have partnered with ICEBERG, it has been a true privilege to work with James Long and the entire ICEBERG family. They’ve made me feel right at home and I’m looking forward to this new journey as well as the overall future of fashion.”Kailand O. Morris.
ICEBERG x Kailand O. Morris retails from January 28th to February 25th and will be available for purchase starting this July through ICEBERG e-commerce and brick and mortars, as well as select retailers worldwide.
