Lil Peep's Collaborative Clothing Platform Prepares for Launch
Before fentanyl claimed the life of Gustav Åhr, the wildly popular Soundcloud artist was preparing to launch both NO SMOK!NG and a section on his website offering fans the opportunity to contribute designs for his newest line of merch. In light of his passing, "a fast-growing artist merchandise fulfillment company" called The HYV decided to combine the ideas; from August 1st (12pm PST) through August 8 (12pm PST), fans may submit "serious, Lil Peep Inspired designs" via the still unpublished submission form on The HYV's website. Selected artists will share in a TBD percentage of their piece's sales.
Gustav inspired millions of people to feel comfortable in their own skin, to openly express themselves in both their art and their lives; NO SMOK!NG will exist thanks to the many voices he's helped shape. Åhr may be unable to watch his dream come true, but a certain trace of his being will live on through the works of art he continues to inspire, in more ways than one.
This is where you'll be able to submit: https://thehyv.shop/pages/no-smoking. There's also some more information you might be interested in.
