Ahead of the lineup announcement, Dreamville partnered with clothing line Daily Paper for a 'Dream Daily' capsule collection. With models for the line including Bas and Lute, the collection homages the rich history of University of Timbuktu / Sankore and the extensive culture of Africa.
“The collaboration with Daily Paper and Dreamville is a real example of powerhouses coming together with music and fashion at the center,” said label partner and president of apparel, Adam Roy. “We tell stories through music and equally they, with fashion. We’re excited about the opportunity to build something special with one of today’s foremost fashion collectives.”
