Unexpected Collaborations: Peanuts Part I…

It’s been some time but we are back with some more unexpected collaborations to brighten your day. For many the Peanuts comic strip and movies were a part of daily life and Christmas tradition. From 1950 till 2000, writer and illustrator Charles M. Schultz churned out over 17,000 strips which ran in over 2,000 newspapers in 75 countries, making it “arguably the longest story ever told by one human being.” This cultural legacy built around the fictional lives of Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Woodstock and the rest of Charlie’s crew eventually became the subject of streetwear collaborations, which we love.

The first streetwear brand to conceive of a Peanuts collaboration was BAPE back in 2014, with three other brands following suit a few years later in 2016. Have a look at the unexpected Peanuts collaborations in this two-part series.

BAPE x Peanuts

Featuring a wide range of products (shirts, hoodies, polo shirts, baby bibs and a Medicom toy) the drop features many favorite Peanuts characters. Perhaps one of the coolest pieces of this drops is BAPE’s take on Charlie Brown’s iconic yellow and black zigzag shirt.

Lacoste x Peanuts

While Lacoste is not technically (in our eyes at least) streetwear, many people rock a Lacoste shirt in their street style look. As with most Lacoste collabs, the collection plays on the Lacoste crocodile logo and incorporates popular Peanuts characters.

 

Stay tuned for the second part of Unexpected Collaborations: Peanuts coming later this week.
