To celebrate the boyband’s 20th (yes, 20th) anniversary in 2018, *NSYNC teamed up with the branding and licensing company Epic Rights to launch a line of merchandise including apparel, accessories, gifts, and collectables. This news is seriously music to our hearts.
According to Billboard.com, *NSYNC’s Lance Bass, who will act as a liaison between the band and Epic Rights, said in a statement:
And we have great news for those of us kids who thrive off of ’90s fashion. Billboard.com reports that *NSYNC and Epic Rights plan on releasing an entire line of ’90s-inspired clothing with the help of a few “iconic fashion brands” from the decade.
Give us those giant camo-print parachute pants and we’ll be happy campers.
The collaboration will also put old *NSYNC album covers, photos, and logos to use on t-shirts, electronics, seasonal and home decor, and games. You can also expect to see collectible figures (we’re planning on collecting all the Justins) and, supposedly, slot machines.
Side note to Epic Rights: Can you put the below photo on everything? Thanks.
Alongside next year’s merch launch, *NSYNC will also receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in Spring 2018. Besides Bass, it’s unclear if other band members — Joey Fatone, Chris Kirkpatrick, JC Chasez, and Justin Timberlake — will be involved with the launch or the 20th anniversary activities.
Until the merchandise line comes to fruition, we’ll be thinking of you, *NSYNC. Then again, when are we not thinking of *NSYNC?
