1Kings of Leon
Kings Of Leon have launched a clothing line, entitled KOLxS2A. The collection, designed by French label Surface To Air, will be available to buy from online retailers such as Gargyle – but be warned, these threads don’t come cheap… Pic: PA Photos
This T-shirt will set you back £71. To buy the full range would cost £2293. On the NME blog, Kings Of Leon fans have reacted angrily to what they regard as rip-off prices. One commenter, Debbie, said: “Who do they think they are, Kate Moss?”
This hat comes with a hefty price tag of £167. Commenter Sonny D joined the chorus of fans accusing the band of selling out: “For the real Kings Of Leon look you should just look for plaid shirts and old boots in a charity shop. ”
The RRP for this piece of jewellery? £189. Perhaps the band will be modelling their new fashion range when they attend the Grammy Awards later this month – they’re up for four awards: Best Rock Song, Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals.
Checked shirt, £112. Aside from launching a fashion collection, the past few weeks have been quiet for Kings Of Leon. Drummer Nathan Followill took advantage of this rare stretch of downtime to marry his longtime girlfriend, singer/songwriter Jessie Baylin, in November 2009.
The Followills are currently working on tracks for a new album, which – according to drummer Nathan – sound like a mix of Radiohead, Thin Lizzy, and The Band.
