Iggy Pop teams up with Billabong for board shorts collab


Iggy Pop's latest collaboration has one mission in mind: Surf and Destroy.

The punk icon unveiled the collaboration on Monday, Dec. 4 and it's not at all what you might expect. The ‘Iggy Pop x Billabong’ collection marries Iggy's raw power with the functionality of sportswear. The limited edition collection features graphic T-shirts, pullovers, board shorts, beach towels, and even a leather jacket-inspired wetsuit top.

With nods to the punk rock concert posters of Iggy's heyday (and even his beloved Instagram famous pet cockatoo Biggy) the ‘Iggy Pop x Billabong’ collection, made in partnership with Sony Music's merchandising company The Thread Shop, seems like a comfortable compromise for a man who loves rocking his birthday suit.
