GUESS is taking us to a happy place with the GUESS x FriendsWithYou capsule collection

This Spring 2021, GUESS is collaborating with FriendsWithYou on an expansive collection of colorful silhouettes and fabrications.  The capsule will be available in April at select GUESS retail stores globally and guess.eu. GUESS has teamed up with global music superstar, J Balvin, to star in the GUESS x FriendsWithYou campaign.

FriendsWithYou is the fine art collective of Samuel Borkson and Arturo Sandoval III, in partnership since 2002 with the sole purpose of spreading the positive message of Magic, Luck, and Friendship™.  Influenced by the simple perspective that happiness is found in everyday life, FriendsWithYou’s work is designed to be accessible to all. During the last eighteen years, FriendsWithYou has gained international recognition as a pioneer in the field of experiential art, actively working to spread the message of connectivity around the world, with a simple mission to become Friends-With-You.

“GUESS has joined forces with FriendsWithYou to spark a movement — an opportunity to shape our world to be a happy place, a place where everything is Friends-With-You. We believe that together we can create a peaceful and joyful world by celebrating our diversities and commonalities. This FriendsWithYou x GUESS effort will begin by bringing magical experiences, on a massive scale, sprinkled throughout the globe. This is just the beginning of this collaboration that brings us closer to each other and our world.”

GUESS admires the FriendsWithYou message of spreading positivity and happiness through its artwork and shares a like-minded approach by creative exploration through color and having fun with collections.  FriendWithYou’s anime aesthetic from the lens of a high-end artist puts a unique twist on this capsule collection.

“At GUESS, we’re always looking to inspire our customers. We want our clothes to provoke a sense of celebration. We aim to get people excited not just about the product, but about their own creative expression and the fresh new perspectives of artists worldwide. This collection is a celebration of FriendsWithYou and the art they bring to the world”
Brand Partnerships Director, Nicolai Marciano
