Iggy Pop x Billabong LAB: The Story Behind the Poster Print
The Iggy Pop x Billabong LAB collection is nothing if not a shock of colors and patterns that are representative of the mayhem and mania of Iggy's long and storied career. The Fifty50 X Poster boardshorts features a series of concert posters from classic Iggy shows and iconic fonts that were used to set Iggy apart from other musicians of his time. Fans will notice that the fonts span his classic Monster font and the font from the Raw Power album.
The Billabong product team infused these posters with contemporary color and then stitched them together through a manual cut and paste process to come up with the perfect blend of iconography and color for the new boardshorts. Billabong has been renowned for its use of color since its inception in 1973 so the fusing of the two worlds ends with unique and unexpected blends on limited edition products.
