There’s just something about wearing a retro band tee that makes one feel instinctively cool. Joining in on the “old-school throwback style” hype, Alexander Wang teamed up with popular NYC vintage brand Procell to curate a selection of 40 of their rarest vintage merch T-shirts.

Featured in the collection are some of Wang’s favorite hip-hop and R&B artists—what he calls his “dream lineup”—including Aaliyah, Dr. Dre, Wu-Tang Clan, Mary J. Blige, Fugees, Snoop Dogg, and Lauryn Hill.

“I’ve always believed that “luxury” is defined in many ways; to some, a rare T-shirt with sentimental value may be the most luxurious item in their closet. These shirts are not only articles of clothing, they really are artifacts from a moment in time. I love how they tell a story from such a specific event and simultaneously blend a feeling of discovery and nostalgia,” the designer told HypeBeast of his love for vintage tees.

Ranging in price from $300 to $2,000, the collection will be available exclusively at the Alexander Wang flagship location in Manhattan on Wednesday (Sept. 6).
