Epic Rights has confirmed a number of agreements with apparel licensees in the US and Canada to create new KISS lines.
Hybrid Apparel, Fifth Sun, Impact Apparel, Junk Food, Signorelli and Trevco have come on board in the US, while Canadian partners are Xtreme Worldwide and Philcos.
The new lines will include tees, fashion tops, hoodies, loungewear and accessories and will feature striking new artwork inspired by iconic imagery from KISS through the years (70s, 80s and 90s). This will include band photos, album covers, tour poster art, new logo development and more.
Each licensing partner will utilise different styles and designs to appeal to all age demographics between them.
Initial lines will be available this autumn, with the majority of product launching in spring 2015.
"As the new agent representing KISS, we have created highly stylised graphic designs for the new apparel lines, taking a fashion forward approach in terms of both market trends and colour palettes – and that also speaks to KISS’ classic rock styling and embraces the band’s 40-year history as the most influential group ever in rock n roll history," said Lisa Streff, SVP licensing at Epic Rights.
"These lines will appeal to passionately loyal fans, both old and new, who now transcend all age groups.
"To debut this exciting, new apparel we sought out only top-tier licensees to make them readily available to fans of all generations at multiple retail options across North America."
