Dev Hynes is about as stylish as musicians get. The mastermind behind the electro-R&B act Blood Orange has quietly perfected his own unique brand of street style. Nearly every candid shot of the singer has him decked out in vintage tees, the occasional pair of overalls and a bountiful assortment of snapbacks and caps.
Now Hynes has been good enough to share this style with the rest of us, as he has just unveiled a set of T-shirts made in collaboration with Know Wave.
Know Wave is primarily an online radio station, but the company has been delving into T-shirts ever since its first logo shirt debuted last year. Nor is it any surprise that the station is skilled in apparel, as one of its principal founders is Aaron Bondaroff, an OG Supreme crew member and founder of NYC mainstays such as aNYthing and OHWOW Gallery.
For its new line with Dev Hynes, the brand has helped create a set of shirts that double as merch for this year’s new Blood Orange album, Freetown Sound. The shirts come in white or black, and display the album title in addition to a pink “NYC” logo. An additional color option in blue and green has also appeared on the Blood Orange online store, all but confirming that these T-shirts will be on hand when Hynes launches his U.S. tour in a few short weeks.
The "Freetown T-shirts" are available now on both Know Wave and Blood Orange’s online stores.
