Paul McCartney is many things: a Beatle, a solo musician, an activist, and even the owner of a knighthood. But, despite being one of the most recognizable icons in music history, the legend is also the father to a number of wildly successful other McCartneys, including Mary McCartney, a renowned photographer and activist, James McCartney, a musician who assisted his father in some of his work, and Stella McCartney, a world-famous fashion designer. The McCartney line — including the singer’s late wife, Linda — is undoubtedly talented down to the bone, and now it looks like the Beatle will be pairing up with one of his children yet again, this time for a rather fashionable throwback.
McCartney has officially announced a new line of Beatles-inspired clothing, evoking the legacy of her father and tied directly to the release of The Beatles: Get Back, a new three-part documentary debuting on Disney+ on Thanksgiving, directed by Peter Jackson. McCartney’s newest collection will celebrate the all-new footage from the documentary as well as her father and his bandmates’ legacy as perhaps the greatest musical act of all time, featuring classic Beatles iconography and new designs putting a twist on the superfamous boy band.
The expansive collection features everything from hats to cardigans to boots, with the band’s iconic logo stitched on nearly every piece. Imagery from Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band is used in excess on a number of pieces, including a set of cardigans and sweaters featuring trippy, psychedelic landscapes, and a full-length cotton coat with images of the band in their Hearts Club Band finest emblazoned on its sides and back. The collection also features loungewear, track pants, and sweatshirts, even branding bucket hats with the signature Beatles style in a way that only a McCartney could bring to life. (Notably also included are a pair of socks sporting The Beatles logo, retailing for the cool price of $105.)
The collection is by no means cheap — McCartney stands as a British fashion icon alongside women like Vivienne Westwood and Mary Quant — but the pieces stand as a fitting tribute to Paul McCartney and the rest of The Beatles, and pairs well with Jackson’s upcoming documentary. And even if fans can’t afford $100 socks or a $1,300 sweater, they can still check out the upcoming three-part documentary, featuring more than sixty hours of never-before-seen footage and unheard Beatles recordings.
The Beatles: Get Back premieres exclusively on Disney+ on November 25. Fans can check out the full Stella McCartney x The Beatles Get Back collection on Net-A-Porter now.
