To celebrate the 60th anniversary of Motown, the iconic record label launched in 1959 in Detroit, Michigan by Berry Gordy Jr., Carhartt WIP will release a thirteen-piece capsule collection on November 14, 2019.
The Carhartt WIP x Motown line playfully reimagines iconic Motown record covers, famous slogans and legendary fabrics worn by Motown artists.
The collaboration honors a label that reshaped the sound of American pop music, diversifying by its airwaves in the process.
Showing Up, Showing Out by Margot Bowman
The film, which showcases emerging Detroit music talent as well as celebrating the legacy of Motown, will be screened at the collection launch in Cologne on November 14, 2019.
In addition to the screening of "Showing Up, Showing Out" Carhartt WIP invited our friends from local institution Groove Attack Recordstore to join the launch.
Shop owners Uwe & Twit One will shift over a few selected crates of Soul & Funk records from their store down the road for this special occasion, available for sale at the collection launch.
Twit One will be soundtracking the evening with a strictly Motown selection, to be broadcasted live via dublab right here. Drop by, say hi or tune in below from 7-9pm!
