Platinum-selling, South London rapper Yungen and iconic lifestyle brand Timberland have partnered to launch the retro-inspired Brooklyn sneaker, dropping the content piece The Green Room. This is a musical escape set amidst the lush greenery of the conservatory in London’s famed Barbican Centre featuring the track ‘Myself ft. Àngel’ from Yungen’s newly dropped ‘Project Purple’. The project reignites his domination of UK rap’s commercial space with his distinctive style and unmissable wordplay.
The Green Room presents melodious beats in a tropical escape at the core of London’s most recognisable brutalist structure. The video’s juxtaposition of the urban with the green, demonstrates Timberland’s push to celebrate the culture of green spaces in cities. Made for the restless city dweller, Timberland’s Brooklyn sneaker offers the wearer the freedom and durability to choose adventure and escape, anywhere.
Speaking about the collab Yungen said,
“Like most Londoners, I’m always moving, so the
sneakers match my energy. It’s good to escape sometimes, to take a minute and clear your headspace.
Having these amazing green spaces across our city that give us the space to be free, we’re lucky to have them”.
The new Brooklyn collection is available online and in-store now.
