There's been a lot of firsts for Shawn Mendes recently. Yesterday he announced his first-ever stadium show is coming to Toronto next year. Today, he is launching his first-ever clothing line to celebrate.
The capsule collection is made in collaboration with Roots Canada and features five different items, combing Roots' traditional brand with looks from Shawn's album art. The best part is that you can get your hands on some of this stuff today.
The Roots x Shawn Mendes line is launching with a pop-up shop in Toronto's Eaton Centre today at 3 PM. The in-store event not only gives Torontonians the first chance to get their hands on Shawn's collection but also early access to his concert tickets.
Anyone who attends the launch at the Eaton Centre this afternoon will be given an access code for the pre-sale of tickets to his show next year. Pre-sale starts December 5th, whereas general public sales aren't until December 15th.
If you aren't in Toronto but still want to score some sweet Shawn sweatpants, you just have to wait one more day. The capsule collection will be available on Roots' website tomorrow, December 5th, the same day that ticket pre-sale begins.
The collection itself includes sweatpants, a hoodie, two t-shirts, a toque, and a fancy, and not to mention expensive, leather jacket which retails for almost $600. The other items range in price from around $35 for the shirts and toques to $82 for the hoodie and sweats.
It's Shawn Mendes' first-ever clothing line and he was very intentional about partnering with Roots. Being a Toronto boy himself he said, "I'm so excited to launch this collaboration with Roots," said Shawn Mendes. "With my first ever stadium show coming up in my hometown Toronto, it felt like the perfect way to celebrate, by teaming up with one of the most iconic Canadian brands.
Shawn's collection is available starting today in Toronto and around the world as of tomorrow. His stadium show is on September 6th, 2019 at the Rogers Center in Toronto. You can shop the collection on the Roots official website in the coming days.
