Forever 21 Launches Honda-Themed Clothing Line
This is not the first time Forever 21 has made car-themed clothing. The fast fashion retailer released a line of “Hot Wheels”- themed bodysuits and t-shirts for women last year, and recently collaborated with men’s streetwear brand Cease and Desist.
This collection was actually more inspired by Honda’s motorcycles than its cars. According to Honda, the company’s motorcycle uniforms and vehicles from the ’80s and ’90s influenced the aesthetic. Forever 21 is hosting an Instagram contest in which people can post photos in their Honda-themed apparel, and the winner will receive a Honda CRF250L motorcycle. Participants have until Feb. 12 to do so, and details can be found here.
The clothing, which is definitely racing-inspired and logo-heavy, is getting mixed reviews. Forever 21 customers have already commented on the quality of the garments, or lack thereof. The garments are mostly made of cotton and range from $15 to $50, suggesting that they’re probably not meant to last forever.
However, the clothing is right on-trend, given Russell Westbrook and Ralph Lauren’s recent car-inspired clothing lines that garnered success in the fashion and car sectors.
Those who enjoy both cars and fashion can scoop up a piece from this collection. After all, where else can you find a crop top that says “Honda” on it?
