Beyoncé is set to release a capsule collection based on her Coachella clothes in an effort to raise money for charity.
The star’s stage outfits for her headline appearances at the Californian festival earlier this year were designed by Balmain and were inspired by the marching band uniforms from historically black universities in America.
Now, Beyoncé and Balmain have teamed up for the capsule collection, which launches on Friday (July 13). The line will be comprised of three pieces – the yellow and pink t-shirts the singer wore on stage, and a black t-shirt with the same sorority-inspired design.
Proceeds from the new garments will go to the United Negro College Fund. Beyoncé recently donated $100,000 to four historically black schools following her Coachella sets. Speaking to Vogue, Balmain creative director Oliver Rousteing said: “The donation was the main goal of this collaboration. We don’t forget where we come from. This is really, really important – I come from an orphanage, you know. I think there is something really emotional about our collaboration.”
The collection will be available from Balmain’s Paris flagship store on July 13 and from the fashion house and Beyoncé’s websites from July 14. The t-shirt will cost $290 (£219) while the sweatshirts will be between $550-$1790 (£415-£1350).
Meanwhile, The Louvre recently launched a new 90-minute tour inspired by Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s video for ‘APESHIT.’ On the tour, fans can discover more about some of the works of art featured in the visuals.
