Gibson launches its first-ever capsule apparel collection with Aviator Nation today, featuring 14 styles including T-shirts, hoodies and hats in unisex, as well as men, women, and children’s sizes. The apparel draws inspiration from ‘70s fashion styles, music themes and iconic Gibson guitars such as the Hummingbird and Flying V.
The Aviator Nation x Gibson Collection is coming soon to Aviator Nation stores across the U.S. and is available online worldwide now at Gibson.com. To showcase the new line, Gibson and Aviator shines the spotlight on several rising indie artists, including Jackie Venson, Mobley, Kevin McKeown of Black Pistol Fire, Suzanna Choffel, John Evans and more.
Gibson and Aviator Nation share a solid ethos of creating high-quality and hand-crafted offerings, manufactured, produced, and made in America. Gibson, of course, has their headquarters based in Nashville, TN. Aviator Nation prides itself on being the opposite of “fast fashion. Instead, the Los Angeles-based manufacturer states, they study “vintage fabrics, fiber weaving processes, inks and dye treatments while implementing labor-intensive production techniques of hand-drawing designs and hand-sewing garments that remain true to a 70s-inspired vibe while ensuring originality, a vintage spirit, and a worn-in feel.”
“It’s exciting to bring this collaboration to life, combining Gibson, an iconic, 126-year-old brand that has been shaping sound for multiple generations and genres of music around the world, with Aviator Nation, a young brand at the forefront of a lifestyle revolution,” says Cesar Gueikian of Gibson. “The Aviator Nation team has remained true to Paige’s original vision of handmade, high quality clothing with a vintage edge that’s been embraced by the current generation. I am looking forward to evolving our relationship with Aviator Nation.”
