Alabama-based fashion designer, Billy Reid has announced a partnership with the iconic, American, Nashville-based instrument brand, Gibson, for an exclusive capsule collection. The capsule is Gibson’s first collaboration with a fashion designer and is inspired by the iconic Hummingbird guitar, favored by such musicians as Keith Richards, Sheryl Crow, Thom Yorke, and Lenny Kravitz.
Billy, an accomplished guitar player himself, researched the various incarnations of the signature Hummingbird pickguard artwork and worked with the Gibson team to create an original design, which he calls the “Kissing Hummingbirds.” The “Kissing Hummingbirds” design is featured throughout the collection of limited-edition Billy Reid styles and Gibson guitar accessories and symbolizes the two treasured brands coming together to create a timeless collaboration.
The Billy Reid x Gibson Hummingbird Collection campaign features singer-songwriter musicians and Gibson artists Margo Price, Abraham Alexander, and Aaron Lee Tasjan. Explore the Billy Reid x Gibson Hummingbird Collection photos below.
