Malaysian songstress and style icon, Yuna, has teamed up with socially conscious brand, Lisn Up, for a streetwear range.
The Yuna-Lisn Up collaboration, known as the Places To Go Collection, is limited but check out the Vintage Flight Jacket, which in a classic olive cotton, stands out. Other items include a classic hoodie, sweatshirt, hemp tee and flight bag.
The collection stems from lyrics in Yuna’s most recent album, ‘Chapters’. In the track, ‘Places to Go’, Yuna sings about constantly travelling and needing a place to call home. Although for different reasons, this is something that resonates for refugees. There are around15 million refugees around the world, fleeing their homes from war, persecution, natural disasters, environmental crises and poverty.
Fifty percent of the profits for each item sold under The Places To Go Collection go towards the US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (UCSRI).
Lisn Up is modelled after themes found in the music industry. The streetwear brand’s collections are uniquely called “Albums”, and each design is a different “Track”. Every purchase comes delivered in boom-box packaging and the lookbooks are printed out as CD booklets. To add to the experience, Lisn Up donates 50% of its profit to a charity of the customer’s choice, making each purchase personal, significant, and unique.
