How to Buy Dreamville Merchandise
Before the festival, Dreamville has launched a series of fashion products.
In March, Dreamville partnered with Crocs to launch the Varsity Clog, which is modeled after a vintage letterman’s jacket. The collaboration also included a Jibbitz yarn collection that spells DREAM and a Jibbitz pennant representing each Dreamville artist’s hometowns, including North Carolina (J. Cole and Lute) and Washington, DC (Ari Lennox).
To celebrate the partnership with Crocs, Dreamville launched a new clothing collection available exclusively at the pop-up clothing store in Raleigh Wednesday through Friday, with hours of operation from noon to 8 pm EST daily.
The varsity-inspired collection features pennant coaches jackets, crew necks, and vintage black t-shirts. Any remaining clothing items after the end of the three-day pop-up shop will be available for purchase online at Dreamville.com.
