Easy as ABC

The latest news to hit fashionville has filled us with pure, childish joy. The Jackson 5 have announced that they are launching their own fashion line inspired by their stage costumes from their heyday!

Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, Marlon and Randy Jackson have all collaborated on the collection, along with the Estate of Michael Jackson. Called J5Collection, it will be available from Urban Outfitters and online via J5collection.com. According to the Telegraph, the line includes T shirts emblazoned with iconic images from the band’s career plus replica leather jackets from Jackson’s Thriller and Beat It videos (OK, so those aren’t from the Jackson 5 period but when a jacket is that cool, who’s gonna argue?).

Talking about the jackets to WWD, the eldest brother Jackie Jackson said: ‘The jackets are incredible. They are the real thing. I didn't really think of them as tributes to Michael in the beginning, but that's what they are. They represent everything he stood for and everything he's done in this industry, 100 percent.’ With biker jackets already a big autumn/winter trend, these are certain to be a bit. Pair with some white socks and leather gloves for the ultimate Jacko tribute.
