Brian Lichtenberg-Forever 21 collaboration hits stores this month

August 3, 2010 | 10:00 am

Designer Brian Lichtenberg and fast-fashion retailer Forever 21, both L.A.-based brands, have collaborated to create a T-shirt line featuring Lichtenberg’s '80s-inspired hipster aesthetic and, of course, his penchant for using his own initials in his designs.

Known best for his edgy, over-the-top ideas (like Lady Gaga’s caution tape outfit in her “Telephone” video) as well as his glittery Grace Jones-esque asymmetrical mini dresses, Lichtenberg didn’t seem short on fun ideas when it came to the Forever 21 collection.

The line of men’s and women’s graphic T-shirts and tank tops launches on Aug. 13 and include dripping print graphics, crystals and a nod to the aforementioned caution-tape look.

Though, to wear these Ts, you’ll have to be OK with Lichtenberg’s initials. “BL” is splashed across many of the styles in a major way.

The T-shirts, going for $14.80 for women’s and $14.90 for men’s, will be available in select Forever 21 locations.
