Has it already been two years since Santigold released Master Of My Make Believe? Time flies when you’re getting out the vote, guesting on TV shows, partying with Vampire Weekend, and contributing to various soundtrack albums. Now you can add “designing socks” to that list of extracurriculars.
As Billboard reports, Santi is releasing a line of socks through the premium sock brand Stance. (Dwyane Wade has a line too! Celebrity sock design: Who knew?) Santi’s debuting three styles at first: Brooklyn Go Hard, Gold Links, and Kilimanjaro. Brooklyn Go Hard, named for Santi’s duet with Jay Z, features cartoons by Philadelphia artist Thom Lessner, whose goofy band Sweatheart you really should see live if you get the chance. The socks go on sale Wednesday through Stance’s site, Nordstrom, Opening Ceremony, and elsewhere; 20 percent of sales for the Kilimanjaro socks benefit charity:water.
