Balenciaga Collaborates With Metal Band Rammstein To Release 2nd Playlist
Playlist Accompanied By Limited-Edition Balenciaga x Rammstein Capsule Collection
Metal Band Rammstein collaborates with Balenciaga on its latest playlist, now available to stream or download on Apple Music. With the playlist, Balenciaga x Rammstein have also launched a capsule collection which repurposes concert merch and draws inspiration from the band.
The German metal group was approached for the project by superfan and creative director of Balenciaga, Demna Gvasalia, who is frequently spotted in their concert tees.
For “Rammstein’s playlist” tracks were chosen by a selected artist or group, based on their personal tastes and influences. The artists, personally selected by Gvasalia, are among some of his favorite musicians. The playlist is composed of 28 songs and includes an eclectic mix of Nine Inch Nails, Led Zeppelin, Lana Del Ray, Beastie Boys, Marilyn Manson, Artic Monkeys, Thom Yorke, and of course Rammstein, to name a few.
Gvasalia plans to continue these collaborations and invite different musical artists to participate on a playlist every few months, with a Balenciaga capsule collection to be launched alongside each.
For Rammstein, he’s designed a limited-edition, unisex line of clothing and accessories which repurposes unreleased vintage merch from past Rammstein tours. These items feature the band’s official logo and an outtake from an iconic photo shoot.
Fans of the two collaborators can purchase items from the collection in stores and on Balenciaga.com. The collection consisting of a cap, backpack, raincoat and T-shirt from range in price between $495 and $2,250. Some pieces in the collection are already sold out, and others are available for pre-order.
To further promote the Rammstein capsule collaboration, Balenciaga also reached out to some of the group’s diehard fans to model the limited-edition unisex capsule.
