You may or may not have heard of Places + Faces. If not, that will all change soon, mainly thanks to a new collaboration centered around Xbox, Game pass and Xbox Cloud Gaming.
Launched on October 22, 2021, the flagship London brand will launch a new collection of custom Xbox wireless controllers and pods, based on the iconic Places + Faces bag models. One of his most exciting collaborations to date sees Ciesay and Soulz, two of the brightest contemporary talents in lifestyle, fashion and music, collaborating with Xbox on a range of accessories and exclusive gaming apparel, all to celebrate the synergies between Xbox Cloud Gaming (beta), included with an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription, and Places + Faces’ digitally mobile philosophy.
Places + Faces is a brand that has built an engaged global community that encompasses photography and film, parties and festivals, magazine production, as well as their clothing line that has achieved cult status. The community is built around some of the world’s most inspiring talent and includes both budding and recognizable names including A $ AP Rocky, Maya Jama, Mowa Lola, and Playboi Carti.
“We’ve been Xbox fans since we owned our first Xbox in 2002. We wanted to create something special and exclusively designed around the controller. We wanted to create something that inspires our two communities; a real collaboration between our brands ”, explains Ciesay.
So what should we expect? Well, the repository will be a dedicated Cloud Gaming Pouch that will let you play anywhere on your mobile phone or tablet, bringing the Places + Faces ethic of freedom and self-expression to life. The design will be based on the iconic Places + Faces bag designs and this limited series will come with a personalized Places + Faces Xbox Wireless Controller and 1 month of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. And you know exactly what that means: Access a library of over 100 high-quality games to play on console, PC, and mobile devices, including the now-standard versions of Xbox Game Studios.
It also appears to be a pointy kit with the Xbox Wireless controller gradient orange and red design paying homage to the film cameras Ciesay and Soulz love to shoot on. The design is reminiscent of the magic of shooting on film when traveling and seeing those colors in the developed images. There will also be a limited series of hoodies and t-shirts.
The items will be sold exclusively online from October 22 via www.placesplusfaces.com. You can also have them shipped worldwide.
