Kings of Leon, known internationally for making above average rock music, have taken their first foray into the fashion world by launching their own menswear line, KOLxS2A, facilitated by Parisian boutique Surface to Air.

There aren’t many celebrity menswear lines out there, at least not to the overblown extent that female celebrities do special lines, so the Kings of Leon project piqued my interest when I first heard about it. So they may not exactly be fashion icons, but at least it would be something interesting.

Sadly, it’s not really. At all. From the clumsy title of the collection to its pieces, including one fairly ugly t-shirt and two meh plaid shirts, it’s all downhill from there. And it’s not even reasonably priced to add insult to injury. £209 for a guitar strap? £739 for a leather jacket? Think I’ll pass.

What’s worse is the fact that a lot of their devoted fans are likely to be turned off the band for ‘selling out’ and releasing an overpriced and not all-that-great clothing line. Bad move.

The collection is “coming soon” to Surface to Air stores in Paris, Sao Paulo, online and selected stores worldwide.
