NFL: Eminem, Fergie, KISS designing team T-shirts
The worlds of music, fashion, and football are all coming together with a new limited line of NFL team T-shirts designed by a wide-ranging group of musicians, including Eminem, Fergie, Mac Miller, Linkin Park, and KISS.
The NFL and Teespring, an online custom T-shirt company, recruited 30 different artists to design shirts for their favorite teams. All the NFL teams are represented except for the Dallas Cowboys, Oakland Raiders, and Green Bay Packers; meanwhile, the Tennessee Titans and Los Angeles Rams scored two different T-shirts.
Artists were allowed creative freedom, and while Eminem went with a traditional Detroit Lions design, Jason Mraz’s design for the San Diego Chargers features a drawing of his face, and Fergie put her name under the Miami Dolphins logo, a team she happens to be a minority owner of.
Stu Smith, head of music and entertainment at Teespring, told Billboard that the design process varied for each artist. For example, he said that Walk the Moon was very hands-on with their Cincinnati Bengals shirt, while a Frank Sinatra-influenced New York Giants shirt was designed under the direction of the late singer’s estate.
The T-shirts, which will be available for $25, are on sale here for the next two weeks.
Check out a few of the designs below.
