Key Pieces: The "This World Is Bullshit" socks in black and white.
Editor’s Notes: Genius's "1997" collection revolves around the year's iconic music and cultural moments. Its merch is divided into six categories: "Girl Power," inspired by the Spice Girls; "Puffy Woods," a hip-hop homage to Tiger Woods; and "This World Is Bullshit," a dedication to Fiona Apple's VMA speech.
It also references the iconic NYC hip-hop club The Tunnel with its "World's Greatest DJs" cap, "My Heart Will Go Uhh!" shouts out to Celine Dione and Titanic with a T-shirt, and a Biggie x Versace "Hypnotize" mashup appears on a beach towel.
Each product has all its detailed references listed on the product page — helping those who were too young at the time to catch up on these iconic moments.
In other fashion and music news, ‘Places+Faces’ debut magazine features Frank Ocean, Lil Yachty, Skepta and more.
