What can we expect to find at Toronto’s ‘Renaissance Flagship’?
Beyoncé’s new merchandise line, Renaissance Flagship, is now available in North America for the first time. The line includes 21 pieces priced from $20 to $250, and features items such as a silver cowboy hat, a hoodie with an oversized “B,” a white T-shirt with tour artwork, a long-sleeved T-shirt with the album cover in green screen form, an 80-page art book, and a “We Shut This City Down” T-shirt. The Renaissance Flagship also includes an exhibition of Renaissance Couture by Beyoncé x Balmain, which is making its North American debut.
This collaboration with Balmain creative director Olivier Rousteing includes 16 couture outfits dedicated to the 16 songs on Renaissance, and marks the first time a Black woman has overseen the couture offering from a historic Parisian house. In addition to Renaissance Couture by Beyoncé x Balmain, the singer is launching a four-piece, limited-edition product extension titled Renaissance: Beyoncé with Balmain. Inspired by the couture pieces on display at Holt Renfrew, this extension includes two oversized tees, a dropped-shoulder hoodie, and a giant tote emblazoned with the collection’s moniker. These items are priced from $150 to $450.
