October’s Very Own has linked up with the Baddest Man on the Planet for a limited capsule collection. Boxing legend Mike Tyson is the latest celeb to get their own collab with Drake’s lifestyle brand.
The heavy-hitting collection was teased on social media earlier this week via some promo shots of Iron Mike rocking an OVO sweater, as well as a grainy campaign video interspersing vintage clips of the boxer with present-day shots of him wearing the new gear.
The OVO x Tyson collection, out today, includes co-branded caps, a coaches jacket, a ‘Money Mike’ T-shirt, a hoodie, and some shorts featuring an image of Tyson in his less follicly challenged days.
Tyson’s shown an affinity for Drake in the past. In 2015, he performed an… interesting version of “Hotline Bling” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
The heavyweight champion of the world has also shown lots of love to Canada as of late. He recently brought his cannabis brand, Tyson 2.0, to the Great White North. In a recent interview with Complex Canada, he spoke fondly of his days partying in Montreal.
“I always like Saint-Catherine Street,” Tyson told us. “I used to go there in the ’80s and we used to be in the video game arcades, smoking weed in there, waiting for the weed guy to come. It was really exciting for me in the early ’80s.
“You had to meet the weed guy at an arcade or at a park or somebody else’s building. And do you remember how silly it was waiting for the guy to come? “Alright, he’s coming!” And then you get the call, “I’ve gotta stop” and you’re like, “Aww man!”
The OVO x Mike Tyson collection is now available at the OVO store, both in-store and online. Check out pieces from the collab below.
