The Linda Lindas shot to fame last year when their punk anthem “Racist, Sexist Boy” went viral. The teenage punk band has since opened for Bikini Kill, signed with a major record label, and performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Now the band have teamed up with Opening Ceremony for a limited edition capsule collection.

The collection – which kicks off a year of collaborations celebrating Opening Ceremony’s 20th anniversary – features three preppy-punk staples that reflect the bands aesthetic. An oversized T-shirt, cropped schoolgirl crew neck sweatshirt, and a custom pink-and-purple OC letterman Jacket, emblazoned with the “LL” logo and the cover art of band’s debut album Growing Up, out April 8. The pieces feature illustrations of The Linda Lindas’ signature “kitty liner” eye makeup. A classic cat eye, with a literal cat on the eye, developed by Opening Ceremony co-founder and co-creative director Humberto Leon and makeup artist Valerie Vonprisk. “The Linda Lindas are icons in the making, and this Souxie Sioux-meets-Cats eye felt iconic the minute we came up with it on set,” Leon said. “The eye encapsulates the easy-going, positive energy they bring everywhere they go, and we’re excited for everyone to wear it with this new collection.”

“It’s crazy to me that we are getting to collab with Opening Ceremony,” Bela Salazar of the Linda Lindas said. “The first time I ever went to New York, my mom took me to their original store and I went nuts, I remember always being so in awe by everything. To now be able to work with the brand is mind-boggling.” The campaign images was shot by Leon and it stars the Linda Lindas as larger-than-life “punk Barbarellas” taking over their hometown.

The Opening Ceremony x The Linda Lindas collection is available now at openingceremony.com. Prices range from $180 through $745.
