Jackson 5 set to launch clothing line
London, Nov 10 (IANS) The Jackson brothers are set to launch their own clothing line, which will pay homage to their late brother Michael.
The range includes men’s and women’s T-shirts, footwear, eyewear and replicas of the jackets Michael wore in the ‘Thriller’ and ‘Beat It’ videos. The range will be sold at stores like Urban Outfitters and Kitson and also be available on www.j5collection.com.
Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, Marlon, and Randy, who have reportedly been working on the range since Michael’s funeral in July 2009, will release the clothing line next year.
‘The jackets are incredible. They are the real thing. I didn’t really think of them as tributes to Michael in the beginning, but that’s what they are. They represent everything he stood for and everything he’s done in this industry, 100 percent,’ contactmusic.com quoted Jackie as saying.
