If there is one thing that the late performer Prince was known for, other than his spanking music, was his gender-fluid style. Prince was truly ahead of his time which is why his legacy and influence still thrives today.
In celebration for the reissue of Prince’s highly anticipated Super Deluxe double album, 1999, his estate has tapped Toronto design duo Cathy Robinson and Lori Marcuz to create a capsule collection. The pair together goes by Call & Response and worked closely with Prince from 2011-2016. “We got this call, “Can we put a box together,” Robinson says as she remembers the brand’s first encounter with Prince. “We put just about anything we could think of in the box and we got a call saying he loved the clothes, and he’d like to buy them all.” After the “Purple Reign” singer received his first set of clothes from Call & Response, they would then go on to collaborate with Prince for the Grammys, Billboard Music Awards, and more.
Now in 2019, the duo is honored to be able to create an authentic collection that envokes some of Prince’s trademark fashion elements. Pieces include his famous shiny studded purple trench coat—but are updated with Call & Response’s attention to textured fabrics, overlays, and detail.
