After partnering with G-SHOCK last year to celebrate the company’s 35-year anniversary with an exclusive collection, Gorillaz are continuing their brand partnership route with Levi’s via a collection for a redesigned logo by the band’s co-creator Jamie Hewlett. 2D, Murdoc Niccals, Noodle, and Russel Hobbs each appear on various pieces throughout the collection.

The clothing line spans graphic denim jackets, printed hoodies, T-shirts, and tote bags. Each item has customization features, so fans of the release can choose from an exclusive library of Jamie Hewlett’s artwork, alternative patterns, motifs, colors, and sizes.

Murdoc Niccals remarked to HYPEBEAST that he believes in “harnessing the creative power of our millions of fans. Plus, it saves a lot of designing our end, which means more time for our other hobbies. I’m training to become an MMA fighter, and 2D is learning the pogo stick. You’d be an absolute philistine not to put me on your denim,” adding with his signature playfulness because “green and blue are side-by-side on the color wheel.”

The Gorillaz/Levi collection is available for the next two months at your local Levi’s print bar.

Casio’s ultimate tough watch, G-SHOCK, is celebrating their 35th anniversary with a new exclusive collection promoted with an animated story made by the Gorillaz. 2D, Murdoc Niccals, Noodle, and Russel Hobbs embark on Mission M101, which appears to be the first in a to-be-continued series. The four band members begin their journey in Tokyo. There, they receive a message by Mr. Ibe to help him obtain a watch from Galaxy M101.

The forthcoming capsule was originally featured in Gorillaz’s “Summer Sky Series” on 2D last year. It will include the release of two limited edition watches designed with the Gorillaz animated band members. The watches will see G-SHOCK’s original 5600 model updated with a twist.

Look for the G-SHOCK x Gorillaz collaboration to launch this winter with more animated clues to come. Earlier this month, the British band utilized hand-drawn animation and claymation for their new “Tranz” music video.
