nasir mazhar's pool-to-rave playlist will get your weekend party started
In celebration of his just-announced menswear collection for Topman, Nasir selects a London grime playlist for enjoying summer in the city.
Nasir Mazhar announced one of the most exciting high street collaborations of the year this week, revealing his upcoming capsule collection for Topman. A uniform for the urban summer, the collection includes Nasir's signature pastel colored, logo-embroidered sweatshirts and sweatpants; a tracksuit with 80s-style pastel crayon-squiggle print on black; logo tank tops; and more.
"The collection was designed with forward-thinking teens in mind, with an energy that's optimistic yet boisterous," Nasir says. To celebrate the upcoming drop — in just two weeks on September 8 — and in homage to the campaign, which shows a group of mates hanging out in the sunshine, i-D asked Nasir to create a playlist to soundtrack for your summer weekend.
"The capsule was created to take you from the pool to the rave and so does this playlist," Nasir says of the list of prime cuts from the London grime scene. Check out his selection of ten tracks, and some more images of the collection, below.
