Fast and Furious is a gloriously dumb movie franchise that has become incredibly successful selling the dream that anything – fame, fortune, gold necklaces, women, well-moisturized arms – can be yours, as long as you put enough aftermarket body work into your Honda Civic. But what if you don’t have a Honda Civic? What if you only enough for a necklace, an overpriced v-neck, and a bus pass? Fear not, because now you can still pretend to live that stupid dream thanks to Guess, and their clothing line, G. Yes, the Fast & Furious clothing line is called “G.” TO THE PRESS RELEASE! (*drops hand holding flag*)
Utilizing moto racing details, gritty prints and destroyed styles, meeting at the intersection of body conscious and bold designs, this 15-piece capsule captures the spirit of both G by GUESS and the Fast & Furious films — young, bold and sexy. The capsule consists of jackets, graphic print T’s and tanks for men, as well as printed tank tops, a studded moto jacket and a tank dress for women. Accessories such as modern aviator sunglasses, a men’s watch and a signature embellished cap complete this collection of accelerated style. [WallStreetJournal]
