Throughout its growth, Billionaire Boys Club has managed to maintain its core, graphic-driven identity, while also carving out space for more mature pieces each season.

Although much of the collection is likely to be revealed over the next few weeks and months, the initial glimpse at the Spring/Summer 2013 range looks to be very much in tune with what we’ve come to expect from the Pharrell-backed label.
