Iggy Pop x Billabong LAB: The Story Behind the Biggy Pop Boardshorts
Iggy Pop may have a heart full of napalm but somewhere in that same heart, he's got a soft spot for his Australian Cockatoo, Biggy Pop. Don't believe us? Check out the Instagram account dedicated to all things Biggy and Iggy right here. You'll see the two of them at the beach, trying on Halloween costumes together (spoiler: they were vikings) and chatting each other up when Iggy is home from tour.
It didn't take us by surprise when Iggy asked us to incorporate his beloved pet into our new limited edition collection and given Iggy's love for Biggy and our love for Iggy, we more than happily obliged. The result was a mash up of a photo of Biggy combined with Iggy's Wild Thing panther logo that is a continuation of our love of irreverent and conversational prints that have been synonymous with the brand since our inception in 1973. How did Iggy feel about the boardshorts when he first saw them? He had no words other than to guess how his close friend and pet was going to feel - "He's gonna love this."
