Inside the 'boy brand' boom
In 2021, male musicians traded tequila brands, colognes and athleisure lines for luxury jewelry, nail polishes and skin-care lines. Rachel Tashjian investigates the shift in a new piece for GQ. "This recent wave of boy brands is defined by the way the various efforts stand on their own, each with a singular aesthetic poised to compete with the kinds of brands these musicians typically shop themselves," Tashjian writes. "You can also think of this shift as a response to changing economic forces. The music industry's reliance upon streaming has made a musician's output more ephemeral than ever — and a musician more reliant on non-recorded revenue streams." {GQ}
