To mark 25 years of being all about the music, Hot Topic has turned to Joan Jett for a shot of rock ’n’ roll.After years of being an influential downtown rocker, she is sharing her style through the Joan Jett for Tripp NYC fashion collection for Hot Topic, which bows today. This is a first for Jett, who has been approached by other companies and designers over the years. She finally decided to go with her friends Daang and Ray Goodman at Tripp NYC. In a phone interview, she said, “I’ve talked about doing something like this over the years but nothing ever came to fruition. Daang and Ray really get my styles and I didn’t have to do the nuts and bolts of the design,” Jett said. “They take my essence and translate my vibe and we go from there.”
