Would You Like To Postmates A Plain White T-Shirt From Justin Bieber?
Good news, you'll soon be able to! At least if you're in the L.A. area.
The Biebs is helping his stylist Karla Welch launch a limited white T-shirt line, TMZ reports, and their wares will soon be available via the Postmates app as well as at a pop-up at concept store/longtime L.A. luxury boutique Maxfield this Sunday. The xKarla tees will be the first in "a series of product launches" from Welch's new fashion label, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
No less a fashion authority than Vogue has sung the praises of the Hanes collaboration's seven T-shirt styles, which Welch developed by cutting up Kmart tees when Bieber dared her to push the boundaries of sartorial convention: "He was so fearless. [He said], ‘I want T-shirts that are long." A true profile in courage.
A single plain white cotton T-shirt from the Bieber-affiliated collection will run you $30 (or, for context, approximately the price of ten non-Bieber-affiliated plain white cotton T-shirts, and yet still wildly cheaper than anything else at Maxfield.) If you're in the market for a plain white tee, or just want to revel in the apotheosis of celebrity branding, check out Welch's website for details on Sunday's pop-up.
We reached out to Postmates for additional information about shirt availability on the app, and will update this important post with those important logistics as soon as they are available.
