It’s only rock and roll…
The Rolling Stones have announced details of pop-up stores across the UK that will see some of their most famous outfits going on display.
The rock icons, who begin a massive UK tour later this month, will launch the Corner Shop installation at Selfridges stores in London, Manchester and Birmingham.
For three weeks from 14 May, fans will have the chance to see iconic stage wear including a green oak leaf sequin jacket worn by Mick Jagger at Glastonbury in 2013, and a denim jacket worn on the Steel Wheels US tour in 1989.
Other notable items include an ostrich feather cape designed by the late L’Wren Scott and a matador-style jacket designed by Balenciaga.
Fans can also get their hands on bespoke merchandise bv brands including Comme De Garcons and Levi’s, as well as hand painted Schott leather jackets.
Meanwhile, Mick Jagger recently announced that he’s working on new music from The Stones, although it isn’t clear if we’ll get to hear it when the band hit the road this summer.
“I am writing at the moment,” he told Independent IE in a recent interview.
Questioned on whether his ideas would be part of a solo release or Stones record, Jagger replied: “I’m just writing. It is mostly for the Stones at the moment.”
He added: “I don’t really think about what I have written, much. I just keep ploughing forward, really.”
