Hugo Boss is releasing reproductions of Michael Jackson’s Thriller Suit to commemorate Jackson’s diamond birthday. The iconic white suite was worn by Jackson on the cover of his hit album Thriller. Jackson’s sixth studio album, Thriller remains the world’s best-selling album, with an estimated 66 million copies having been sold. The album included hits like “The Girl Is Mine,” “Billie Jean,” “Beat It,” and, of course, “Thriller.” The suit being offered by Hugo Boss will be limited to just 100 individual pieces, with each being crafted at the HUGO BOSS headquarters in Germany.
Hugo Boss is also partnering with British artist Graham Dolphin. Using the cover of Thriller as inspiration, Dolphin collected statements from fans to write over the cover. The artwork will be offered on an exclusive T-shirt. Dolphin also took one of the suits and hand-wrote the lyrics from Michael Jackson’s most famous songs. It was a painstaking process, but the result celebrates Jackson’s talents as a performer and as a songwriter as well.
If the suit isn’t your style, but you still love the King of Pop, Hugo Boss is offering a three official T-shirts that depict the Michael Jackson. The shirts capture moments from Jackson’s career, including both his dance moves and iconic images.
