Carly Henley, What are Lady Gaga, Yoko Ono, Iggy Pop and Bloom have in common? This week: They are all singing the praises of John Lennon. Well, Bloomingdale’s is not – not exactly. But you can buy clothes Lyric Culture is featuring songs by John Lennon this week at the store. Their t-shirts brought to our attention that on October 9, which was the 70th anniversary of the Beatles, is approaching.
Many events are planned across the world. Lady Gaga, Yoko and Iggy played in Los Angeles and, of course, there are plenty of merchandising – reissues of discs, DVD’s, Beatles and Lennon memorabilia. Lyric Culture clothing comes from company founder Hanna Rochelle, also a singer-songwriter.
She was working on an album a few years ago with music producer Jack Douglas, who had been in the studio with Lennon the day he was assassinated in 1980. Douglas imagined a few words and lack of paper, wrote on his jeans. An idea of fashion is born. “I’m inspired. When I got home I pulled out a pair of old jeans and wrote the lyrics to” Dirty Laundry “by Don Henley on them,” Rochelle told Reuters. She went to the studio the next day to wear them, and Douglas became animated. He shot a photo of the jeans and send it by mail to his friend, singer Steven Tyler of Aerosmith, who knew Douglas “flip” to the idea.
Then, feeling she had a winner, Rochelle asked the granting of rights of rock stars and launched the clothing line, with lyrics by Bob Dylan, Joan Jett, Carly Simon, Rolling Stones, Aerosmith and others. “I started … offering this as a way to create new revenue streams for authors, “said Rochelle, the daughter of 33 years of classical music conductor Eduard Schmieder.
When Lennon is concerned, Rochelle has obtained the rights to the music of the Beatles, but Lennon’s solo work has proved more difficult than Douglas, who worked on the re-release of “Double Fantasy” with Yoko Ono, presented the concept to the lawyer Yoko Ono. Ono has fallen in love with them and approved the line, “said Rochelle. The collection includes Lennon scarves, cufflinks, necklaces, and bracelets from $ 45 to $ 75. A T-shirt features Lennon plays piano with the lyrics of “Imagine” placed above him. Send Sports Cufflinks with “Instant Karma”.
