Beyonce’s back-up dancers’ Coachella clothing to be sold by BlackMilk
The striking costumes worn by Beyonce’s dancers during her stunning Coachella performance are to be sold by Australian fashion company BlackMilk.
The singer hit the stage at the California festival late on Saturday night (14Apr18) and delivered a powerhouse set, complete with a marching band and a brief Destiny’s Child reunion, but many were talking about her colourful dancers – and now fans can copy the stylish pieces they wore.
Featuring long sleeves and a high neckline, the unique look was worn by the star’s troupe during the opening number in the landmark concert.
The King Tut-inspired outfits were created by designers at BlackMilk, who are well known for producing bold prints and fabrics that allow for maximum movement. The gold bodysuits, on sale for $100 (£70), will be available to own from Tuesday (17Apr18),
In a statement, Sally Osburn, the CEO of the Australian brand expressed her excitement: “We honestly couldn’t be more excited to see Beyonce’s crew rocking BlackMilk. We are really proud to be a company built on a community of individual, creative, amazing women.”
She also noted that the collaboration with the Crazy in Love hitmaker will allow fans to be part of Beyonce’s show-stopping moment: “It’s such an amazing opportunity for our team to see products they have lovingly created onstage at one of the world’s most celebrated music events, that is seen all around the world,” she added. “It really is unbelievable!”
For Osburn, the costumes are huge a source of pride.
“We are also really proud to be flying the flag for Australian fashion, design and manufacture on a global stage,” she noted.
A description for the outfits classifies them as “super sun-safe, perfect for surfer babes and part-mermaids alike” and encourages buyers to be creative with how they are worn: “Throw on a skater skirt or high-waisted shorts and it becomes an instantly cool long-sleeved top.”
