Musically, much has been quiet on the Santigold front since the release of 2012’s Master of My Make Believe. Not to say that Santi White hasn’t been busy. She’s taken time to appear on the Office, contribute to soundtracks, appear in music videos and is now releasing her own line of socks.
Santigold has paired with California sock company, Stance Socks and will debut a line of custom socks this spring. “Santi has an amazing sense of personal style and unparalleled commitment to her art,” says Candy Harris, Vice President of Stance’s Women’s Strategy in a press release.
The three styles included in the collection thus far are titled, Brooklyn Go Hard, Gold Links and Kilimanjaro. Brooklyn Go Hard, named after her collaboration with Jay Z, features illustrations by Philadelphia artist Thom Lessner. Kilimanjaro, inspired by a recent trip to Tanzania, has a more philanthropic tilt: 20 percent of proceeds from the Kilimanjaro style will be donated to Charity Water.
The Santigold Collection goes on sale Feb. 19, via Stance’s site, Nordstrom, Opening Ceremony and other retailers.
