Award-winning actor Idris Elba is expanding his experience in the realm of fashion design. Already a collaborator with British brand Superdry, Elba is now launching his own fashion line, 2HR SET, which is inspired by his other love, djing.
“Whether I’m behind the decks on stage, in the gym, or studying a new script, I’ll give myself two hours and really get stuff done.”
If you’re familiar with DJ culture, you know that most prep for a minimum two-hour set according to the actor – hence the name. “I’ve taken this idea a step further. Whether I’m behind the decks on stage, in the gym, or studying a new script, I’ll give myself two hours and really get stuff done,” Elba adds.
In addition to the launch of 2HR SET, the newlywed is taking a stand against the recent wave of knife crimes in the UK with exclusive Don’t Stab Your Future t-shirts, sweats and hoodies. All proceeds from the campaign will go to support Faron Alex Paul’s organization, whose team is dedicated to collecting knives on the streets.
2HR SET features mens, womens and unisex styles priced between $40-$80. You can shop the new collection here and take a closer look at a few pieces below.
