NEW DIRECTION

Michael Diamond of the Beastie Boys has ventured into the fashion industry by collaborating with Los Angeles-based accessory designer Clare Vivier.
The collection, which is the first men's range from Vivier, includes pieces designed to last and spans across t-shirts, wallets, and the Tomas Tote studio bag that Diamond refers to as the “grown man bag.”

“The collection was a very selfish exercise if you want to get down to it. I’ve had backpacks my whole life, and I’m a grown man now. I should have something better,” said Diamond.

Vivier said that although the line is geared towards men, that it remains accessible to anyone.

“There are more similarities than not because I would carry everything we’ve made in this collection,” said Vivier.

Diamond has no plans of slowing down either, already explaining his excitement for new fashion projects coming up.
