will.i.am and Slick Rick Collaborate to Launch Eyewear Collection
will.i.am has teamed up with Hip-hop icon Slick Rick to create a limited eyewear capsule collection dubbed as ill.i Optics. The ill.i x Slick Rick series will consist of three models of unisex sunglasses.
Slick Rick will bring his legendary style and swagger and mesh it with will.i.am’s futuristic approach to design the first installment of ill.i Optics’ ongoing series of artist collaborations. The Slick Rick x will.i.am collab draws inspiration from vintage silhouettes and classic Hip-hop aesthetics.
The singular exclusive style will be released for sale on March 20 via ill.i.am. The capsule style retails for $340.
