Rolling Thunder Apparel Collection has Arrived

Sep 30, 2019

The Rolling Thunder Collection, a premium limited edition clothing line from New York designer label, Barking Irons, was imagined as a merging of fashion and music merchandise. Inspired by Dylan’s enviable style throughout the late 1960s-70s, Barking Irons initially drew inspiration from three celebrated albums Basement Tapes, Blood on the Tracks, and Desire. The collection evokes sartorial stylings based around items worn by Dylan in photographs and album covers. The one-of-kind Peruvian coat worn by Dylan on the cover of Desire album was transformed into the Plymouth Shawl Sweater ($395), a merino wool cardigan sweater which was a gift from the late Dennis Hopper.

The collection walks the line between premium apparel and collectible merchandise with some items referencing Dylan only in intimate details that only the wearer would notice such as the Wheel’s on Fire Denim Shirt ($180), while other items like Dylan’s Rolling Thunder Tour Jacket ($249) are loaded with authentic patches and markings from the iconic Rolling Thunder Revue tours. A range of soft USA-Made T-shirts include a rare reproduction of The Night of the Hurricane T-shirt ($65) which was originally made for a benefit show in 1976 raising awareness for the cause.

For over a decade Barking Irons has specialized in creating incredibly detailed capsule collections around iconic artists and American stories which are sold directly on their website and at Nordstrom stores in the USA. The Rolling Thunder Collection is available for purchase now and the company is offering 5% discount when you opt in to their newsletter.
