The Gap meets rap collaboration comes in the form of a Wu-Tang Clan branded T-shirt, designed to “Protect Ya Neck” and presumably all other parts of your torso.
The Clan, whose members include hip-hop legends RZA, Method Man and Ghostface Killah, are no doubt thrilled to be immortalized in 100% cotton. They join a long list of music megastars to be linked with the brand.
Icons ranging from Madonna right through to Willie Nelson have teamed up with jeans-and-tee emporium in seasons past, while clips of a young Audrey Hepburn were memorably used to front its 2006 ‘Back in Black’ campaign.
The Clan’s “canyon shadow” colored top comes in a range of sizes and can be yours for just $29.95 — but it might not sell so well in New York. According to the New York Observer, the Gap is set to close a quarter of its NYC stores in the next few years as a result of intense competition from cheap-chic fashion rivals H&M and Uniqlo.
