Vetements x Hanes “Official Fake” Collection is inspired by tour merchandise.

The new, minimalist collection features simple designs in both black and white variants, including the coveted Vetements’ “T-Shirt” tee (Hanes Edition Entry Level T-Shirt) and the tour inspired “Staff” and “Securite” shirts.

According to City of Hype, the “Official Fake” Collection kicked off with the now sold out “Definition-Print Raincoat”. Check out the slideshow below for pictures of the  full collection and their respective prices:
