We love Fridays, and we love new music, and we love fashion. What happens when all three of these things are combined, you ask? We celebrate! Today, psychedelic R&B duo Spiritsaver’s single “Magnolia” is launching in tandem with their debut merch collection, which features a T-shirt, a snapback hat and branded mints. But this isn’t any ordinary merch. It’s been designed in collaboration with This Is Your Brain On Plants using upcycled, unreleased Yeezy Gap pieces.
