Sounds weird, but could hit the zeitgeist exactly: The Tokio Hotel frontman has now designed a nostalgic fashion line for the online giant “About You”.
The present is extremely stressful and threatening right now – no wonder we are all so fond of reminiscing about the past. From the “Stranger Things” series set in the ’80s to current fashion that’s heavily inspired by the ’90s. Bell-bottoms and mullet hairstyles – it’s all back.

Even if you didn’t really expect this cooperation – maybe the musician had a very good nose for the spirit of the times. And it’s certainly not Kaulitz’ last foray into the fashion industry.
