Playboy Enterprises Announces Rock The Rabbit 2008
For the second year in a row, Playboy's Rock the Rabbit initiative will fuse rock, hip-hop, art and fashion in conjunction with Playboy magazine's annual March music issue (on newsstands February 12, 2008). Rock the Rabbit 2008 includes an impressive line-up of legendary artists, including Duran Duran and Iggy Pop, as well as other cutting-edge musicians across a variety of genres, both established and buzz-worthy up-and-comers.
As part of this year's program, Rock the Rabbit artists will put their twist on the iconic Playboy Rabbit Head logo by creating limited edition t-shirt designs. Original prototypes of all t-shirt designs will be auctioned off, with proceeds benefitting Rock the Vote (www.rockthevote.org). A special collection of Rock the Rabbit t-shirts will be available nationwide at select Bloomingdale's locations and online at ShopTheBunny.com.
Additionally, legendary photographer Mick Rock photographed select Rock the Rabbit artists for the fashion pages of Playboy's March music issue, and RockTheRabbit.com will feature a complete gallery of this year's t-shirt collection alongside profiles and Q & A's with the artists.
