Bey­oncé un­veils hol­i­day line of gift ideas

Calgary Herald - - YOU -

Bey­oncé un­veiled a vi­brant range of hol­i­day-themed mer­chan­dise in time for Christ­mas.

The su­per­star drops a fun col­lec­tion prior to the fes­tive sea­son each year. On Mon­day, Bey­oncé dropped her 2018 range, with the of­fer­ings in­clud­ing black sweat­shirts and jog­gers em­bla­zoned with the word “HOLIDAYONCE” in neon green, a neon green T-shirt fea­tur­ing a grayscale por­trait of the For­ma­tion singer and a black cropped T-shirt.

A sweat­suit set and a “HOLIDAYONCE” scarf are also avail­able in the cloth­ing range, while other items ref­er­ence the iconog­ra­phy used in her epic Coachella Mu­sic Fes­ti­val gigs in April, which paid trib­ute to his­tor­i­cally black col­leges and uni­ver­si­ties and fea­tured more than 100 dancers.

A set of enamel pins fea­tures the Bey­oncé coat of arms — in­clud­ing de­pic­tions of Egyp­tian queen Ne­fer­titi, a Black Pan­ther and black fist, nods to the Black Pan­ther Party and mem­bers’ fight for civil rights, as well as a bee — a ref­er­ence to the nick­name for her fans, the Bey­hive.

There is also Bey­oncé-themed wrap­ping pa­per, fea­tur­ing the Ne­fer­titi and Black Pan­ther sym­bols, with three sheets priced at $10, while the Home­com­ing Mug Set, cost­ing $45, con­tains three ce­ramic mugs in black, pink and gold, printed with the coat of arms images.

For those seek­ing mer­chan­dise from Bey­once’s On the Run II Tour, co-head­lined by her rap­per hus­band Jay-Z, there are OTR II items still up for grabs, in­clud­ing a black T-shirt with the words This Is Real Love splashed on the front, and a kids’ sweater em­bla­zoned with the OTR II logo.

Items are on Bey­once’s web­site.
