In making the announcement, Michael C. Appel, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of rue21 said, “We are very excited to have collaborated with Spike Lee and Forty Acres and a Mule and Defend Brooklyn to offer our customers something that they can’t get anywhere else. Our customers love Spike Lee and Do the Right Thing.  And they love to wear fashion that has meaning and stands for something important. We know they will love this exciting iconic 30th Anniversary of Do the Right Thing Collection. When this very limited-edition collection—which will never be released again– is sold out, it is gone forever.” 

Alex Wright, Creative Director of Forty Acres clothing explained, “We chose to work with rue21 because they offer accessible fashion with an understanding of the culture of customers they serve. They are one of the last apparel chains that go outside the box of cookie cutter pop culture fashion. That makes them a great partner for any progressive designer. We look forward to continued work with rue21 in affordable exclusive fashion. The future is togetherness, because together we are stronger.”
