Migos rapper Quavo has unveiled his second collection for boohooMAN.

Following the success of the hip-hop star’s debut line for the U.K.-based retailer, he has now dropped a follow-up range inspired by his “huncho” style. The 100-piece collection is comprised of ready-to-wear clothing, footwear, and accessories.

“Collaborating with boohooMAN is special because they just really are the first team that let me open my creative mindset and just bring my ideas to life,” the 29-year-old shared. “When I met the team, they were young and represented the culture so I thought, ‘O.K., we can collaborate and do something special.’ I’m happy for it to come around again. This time it’s better!”

Highlights of the range include tops with bandana-inspired prints, tie-dye elements, distressed denim, bold sweat sets, and printed slides and socks.

And Shane Chin, head of design at boohooMAN, is thrilled with the final result.

“Working on this second drop with Quavo came so naturally to all involved,” the designer praised. “Quavo has a really distinctive style, so despite the majority of it being striking, it is ultimately all very wearable, which is what we do best – provide products that speak to the uniqueness in us all.”

Items are priced from $10 to $80 (£8 to £65) and are available in sizes small to 5XL. They can be purchased from the brand’s website from Wednesday.

Previously, the team at boohooMAN has collaborated with the likes of Quincy, Tyga, Rae Sremmurd, and French Montana on fashion lines.

Migos sue former clothing line collaborators

Rappers Migos are preparing for a court battle with their former business partners regarding a failed clothing line venture.

The Stir Fry hitmakers claim they entered an agreement with officials behind the Yung Rich Nation (YRN) label in 2015 to create an apparel collection, from which bandmates Quavo, Offset, and Takeoff would receive a percentage of royalties from sales.

However, according to court papers obtained by The Blast, they believe YRN bosses shortchanged them, and then refused to provide a full record of their accounts, making it difficult for the musicians to determine how much they were actually owed.

The trio accuses YRN chiefs of going on to produce products using the names of Migos albums and songs without permission, and they are demanding an injunction to halt the continued sales of the apparel, as well as requesting unspecified damages.

Migos’ lawsuit emerges months after YRN executives launched legal action against the band, alleging the rappers breached their contract by reneging on an agreement to promote the label in at least six music videos a year and four photo shoots, and take part in a minimum of six in-store signings.

The MCs ended up launching their own clothing and accessories range with label bosses at Universal Music Group, before trying to shut down the YRN company – as it shares the name of the group’s 2015 debut studio album.

Migos denied all claims of wrongdoing at the time, and filed a motion for YRN’s case to be dismissed earlier this year (18).

The suit comes months after a stylist for Offset hit the hip hop sensation with a lawsuit after he reportedly failed to pay for over $13,000 (£10,000) worth of clothing. The claim was made by bosses at Miami-based personal stylist company the Meyhem Group, who alleged Offset acknowledged he owed them but “has refused to pay”.
