Haven have brought together indie fashion label Band Of Boys and Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for their first ever fashion collaboration in New Zealand.
Distributed via Band of Boys’ online store and select specialty partners, the exclusive TMNT collection consists of tees, shorts, hats and a backpack - as well as the brand’s first foray into socks and underwear. The creative team behind the brand worked with New York artist Matthew Langille on custom illustrations to bring to life the brand’s own spin on the iconic TMNT logos, the Turtles themselves, as well as their iconic favourite food: pizza.
“We have loved working with Nickelodeon and Haven on this sweet Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles collection,” said Susan Vaz, Creative Director of Band of Boys. “What you see in this collection is our unique take on the Turtles from our favourite memories spending a good part of the 90’s watching TMNT! We are proud to have worked with a native New Yorker (Matthew Langille), on the designs as he really brought some authentic New York vibes to the collection. We are very excited to take this collab to our fans!”
“TMNT and Band of Boys make a perfect combination for collaboration,” added Yvonne King, Director of Haven Licensing. “Both brands encourage kids to embrace their individuality while recognizing the importance of being part of a team. We’re so pleased with the creativity Band of Boys brought to the TMNT brand, further elevating the range to something truly unique and special.”
