John Varvatos has teamed up with Led Zeppelin on an exclusive capsule collection.

The menswear designer is no stranger to collaboration, having previously teamed up with the likes of Nick Jonas and Guns N’ Roses on limited-edition lines.

Now, Varvatos is celebrating the iconic English rock band with a range evoking the aesthetic of original members Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones, and late drummer John Bonham.

“Working with Led Zeppelin on this collaboration is a dream come true. Their music and style has had a huge influence on me,” said Varvatos. “It’s been incredible developing this collection with the band and creating clothes that represent the roots of their style, but at the same time are extremely relevant today.”

An accompanying campaign was shot by photographer and director Mark Seliger and features model Miles McMillan.

The collection includes logo T-shirts, shirts, black jeans, a brown leather coat, a velvet jacket, and two scarves. There is also a velvet blazer with splatter print and an updated take on a vintage circa 1970s Led Zeppelin tour jacket.

With regards to the final collection, Page praised Varvatos’ vision for the garments.

“Having had the great pleasure to work with John personally on numerous collaborations in the past including my book, the Yardbirds, and the John Varvatos spring 2013 ad campaign with Gary Clark Jr. I’m pleased that there is now a Led Zeppelin collection. I was really impressed with how everything came out,” he shared, while Plant added: “The Varvatos style is unique – he’s out on his own… Above and beyond the crowd below.”

Led Zeppelin x John Varvatos is now available to purchase from the brand’s website and boutiques. Items are priced from $118 – $2,698 (£98 – £2,138).

Post Malone’s showstopping pink leather Grammys outfit came about all thanks to a retro women’s suit his stylist Catherine Hahn laid her eyes on.

The Congratulations rapper has left the wife-beater vests behind to debut a more glitzy style on the red carpet in recent months, favouring western suits with an Americana vibe.

And on Sunday (10Feb19), he stepped out at the annual music event in a suit made especially by Hahn, which he topped off with matching pink cowboy boots.

“I actually saw a vintage ’80s lady’s studded leather suit and thought, ‘If that only existed in Posty’s size!’” Hahn smiled to Vogue.

Hahn recreated the look for the 23-year-old and had the leather jacket and pants covered with hundreds of rhinestone crystals by the artisans at Star Studded, a workshop in Beverly Hills famous for its Vegas style embellishment.

And it was paired with a white undershirt by Tom Ford which he described as a “wife lover,” not beater. “Working with Cathy we have created a unique style that just stays true to who I am and what I am most comfortable with,” said Malone, who was nominated for four Grammys, but came away empty-handed.

Ahead of his performance at the awards ceremony, the rapper switched up his outfit, opting for an emerald green velvet suit embroidered with dragons and his first and last names on each arm, which Hahn explained was inspired by a very famous British Rocker.

“My inspiration was Jimmy Page from Led Zeppelin who wore this dragon suit,” says Hahn. “I love that emerald green colour so I thought, ‘Let’s do a velvet green with dragons.’”

Post’s dragon suit was teamed with a bespoke foppish cream shirt, complete with a Prince-style pussy bow, made in Los Angeles.

“So many amazing makers were involved in this outfit,” gushed the stylist.

Led Zeppelin are celebrating the 50th anniversary of their iconic self titled album by teaming up with Vans for a new footwear line.

The rockers announced the release of the exciting new item via Twitter, sharing a collage featuring two versions of the shoes. The low tops include the symbols from their fourth record, Led Zeppelin IV, while the high tops display the image of their debut release, featuring the 1937 Hindenburg disaster. Both styles have a black base with white and red writing.

Included in the social media slideshow are a glimpse of t-shirts and hats featuring similar designs.

Several notable musicians, including Pearl Jam, Kiss, Slayer, Motorhead and Iron Maiden, have teamed with Vans in recent years, and a release inspired by David Bowie is also expected to drop later this year (19).

The Led Zep pieces will be available from 22 February (19).

This isn’t the first piece of merchandise Robert Plant and his bandmates have inspired to commemorate the anniversary. Last month (Jan19), they joined forces with the outerwear brand Burton to release a limited-edition Misty Mountain Hop snowboard, also adorned with imagery from the 1969 release. They also released a special t-shirt featuring an artful logo accompanied by the number 50, which they offered through their official online store.

In October (18), the band marked the release of their first LP by releasing the book Led Zeppelin by Led Zeppelin, which features a collection of rare images selected by the group.

Paris Jackson has had four large Led Zeppelin-inspired tattoos inked on one arm.

The actress/singer, who is the daughter of late music icon Michael Jackson, already has a number of tattoos, including a pair of feathers behind her right ear, an image of a stag’s head on the back of her right forearm, and a colourful chakra tattoo down the centre of her torso.

However, Paris has now added to her collection with a tribute to English rock band Led Zeppelin, choosing to get the four symbols from the group’s untitled 1971 album.

“Was planning for a few months on just getting zoso but then I said f**k it and (sic),” she captioned a snap of her new body art on her Instagram Stories on Tuesday (29Jan19).

Paris also tagged @tattoomania25 in her post, which the link referring to West Hollywood tattoo studio Tattoo Mania. None of the artists at the studio have yet posted about her bold inkings.

At the top of her arm, the 20-year-old has Jimmy Page’s “Zoso” symbol, with the design followed by John Paul Jones’ triquetra motif, John Bonham’s three interlocking rings symbol, as well as Robert Plant’s feather inside a circle.

Paris did not share any further details about the tattoos or their significance. Though earlier this month (Jan19), she announced that she had decided to take some time out from the public eye after several news outlets reported that she was seeking help for her mental and emotional health at a live-in treatment facility.

She later took to Instagram to update her fans and shared that she was feeling “better than ever” and working on new music after taking a short break.

“yes i’ve taken a break from work and social media and my phone because it can be too much sometimes, and everyone deserves a break, but i am happy and healthy and feeling better than ever…!” the star wrote alongside a photo of her holding a dog. “i have some new music (I’m) stoked to share with y’all…! hope you guys’ new year started out with lots of love and light and all the things. i’ll be back soon (sic)!!”
