What’s In The Thank U Obama Collection Chance The Rapper Is Rocking On Twitter — PHOTOS
If you're looking to express your gratitude for the United States' 44th president, the Thank U Obama collection is where it's at. Created by designer Joe Freshgoods and modeled by none other than Chance The Rapper, the merch gives a major shout-out to Barack Obama and everything he gave the country during his two terms.
"With this project I wanted to timestamp a period in my life where I felt like I can do whatever I wanted to do and be whatever I wanted to be," the designer writes on the website. "The night Obama won his first term gave me so much hope, especially and most importantly as a black man. I decided to make a collection saying 'thank you' and give me something to smile at every now and then when I look in the closet."
And as a big bonus, the collection says "thank you" in a decidedly trendy way. The retro-cool line has collegiate influences with a Harvard-inspired Malia tee, nods to Obama's love for basketball with a number 44 jersey, and even a '90s crew-neck wedding sweatshirt to celebrate the literal perfection of Barack and Michelle (#couplegoals for life).
And if that weren't enough to make you whip out your credit card, the photos of Chance The Rapper wearing the line provide some serious styling inspiration.
Act fast, though — the line was originally released in mid-January and promptly sold out, but items were restocked on Thursday afternoon. Several items are already on back-order so you'll need to wait a couple of weeks for your merch, but better late than never. Here are the seven items in the Thank U Obama collection.
