Michael Jackson Clothing Line Previewed by Audigier

Previously, I wrote of Christian Audigier’s collaboration with Michael Jackson for the release of his  clothing line prior to the pop stars death. Audigier is pressing forward for the eventual launch of the clothing label. The Ed Hardy designer recently appeared  on the Today show giving a sneak peak at items from the fashion collection.   michael-jackson-christian-audigier-clothingThe clothing and accesssories in the line include rhinestone socks, a rhinestone glove, belts, T-shirts, jackets, gloves, and  umbrellas.

Audigier related that: “[Michael] said ‘I want to do a line, and I want to have you working on the merchandising.’ “He was very excited.” “What he wanted from me was the T-shirts and the hoodies and the caps.”  He also stated that Michael Jackson was very much involved in the design of the fashion line.  Audigier is now working with Jackson’s estate to complete the project.

Michael Jackson Planned Clothing Line

Millions of fans the world over mourned the passing of modern legend, Michael Jackson. A brilliant entertainer, nonetheless, he was plagued by troubles. Many creative people often struggle with pressure from without and conflicts from within. Often that creativity leads to the art, music and literature that we may be fortunate enough to enjoy. A creative endeavor which he did not get to complete was the launch of his own fashion collection with French designer Christian Audigier. In June before  Jackson’s death, the Ed Hardy designer was enthusiastic about the project, telling PEOPLE that “It’s the merging of the King of Pop with the king of fashion. Something explosive is going to happen.”

A fashion line seemed like a logical step for Jackson to take. Michael Jackson always designed with the costumers for his performances. The pop icon favored Swarovski crystals, a military look and “over the top” designs to enhance his onstage presence.  Dennis Tompkins and Michael Bush discussed working with Jackson for costumes for the “This Is It” tour, in this People article.  Bush said,  “Working with Michael for 25 years we had never seen his creativity at this level…”.

Audigier, who also designed tour outfits for Jackson, describes the planned fashion collection: “It was based on various types of merchandising on different products, also accessories. What he wanted from me was the T-shirts and the hoodies and the caps. And it was very kind of royalist – kind of a mix of the real Michael Jackson and his alter-ego as the King of Pop.”

This collection may be available in the future. “I’m still hoping to launch the label as a tribute to Michael,” Audigier said at the launch of his  Champagne and wine collection recently. ‘We went through designs quite often. I showed him what I thought would suit him and he would say “Yes, I like that” or “No”.

However, a separate venture is being launched – a 300 piece collection that Michael Jackson had a hand in designing,  in connection with the “This Is It” tour.  Universal Music Group’s merchandise division, Bravado along  with concert promoter AEG Live will offer the collection which is comprised of clothing such as T-shirts, hoodies and other merchandise such as sleep masks, belt buckles, socks and even jigsaw puzzles and children’s games.
