They’ll never accuse Ke$ha of being the Pop World’s Jackie O. Nonetheless, the girl who never found a bottle of glitter that she didn’t want to adorn her eyes with is using her — Er — unique (Yeah, that’s it…) sense of style to design an exclusive collection of watches. Pop star Kesha has teamed up with Casio’s Baby-G brand for the launch of an exclusive new watch collection.
The “Tik Tok” hitmaker iss the pioneer behind two special edition Baby-G timepieces that made their debut earlier this month. One of the designs features leopard print (MSRP $120), the other reflects the colors of the American flag (MSRP $99).
“I have been designing and making my own clothes since I was young, and, as an artist, I design all of my stage costumes. This experience with Casio is so exciting because it’s my first collaboration as a designer and it’s extra meaningful because I wrote my first single ‘Tik Tok’ on a Casio keyboard,” Ke$ha says, explaining the inspiration behind her designs. “In creating my red, white and blue watch, I was obviously inspired by the American flag because it’s a recurring theme in my aesthetic but also represents freedom of speech, a right I passionately exercise in my life and in my music.”
Both watches are adorned with Ke$ha’s signature logo.
She adds: “Leopard print is another recurring theme in my look, which I like to wear because it brings out my animal inside. I hope when people wear my watches they’re reminded to express themselves always and never lose the animal inside themselves.”
Ke$ha’s watches are currently for sale at Tourneau, Nordstrom, select Macy’s stores, and numerous fashion boutiques across North America.
