Idris Elba Debuts New Athleisure Fashion Brand 2HR SET [PHOTOS]

Idris Elba

*Idris Elba has dropped a unisex apparel and accessories line called 2HR SET, which represents the standard set time he works DJing gigs.

“A two-hour set is the acid test for a DJ. But for me, I’ve taken this idea a step further. Whether I’m behind the decks on stage, in the gym, or studying a new script, I’ll give myself two hours and really get stuff done. It’s my window to go for it, get it done, and get it done well,” said Elba in a statement.

The collection is available for men, women and kids, and includes hats, sweatpants, hoodies, kids, bombers, shoes and tees (starting at $16.50), Designs include tops reading “DSYF” and “Don’t Stab Your Future,” which refer to an increase in knife crime in the U.K., per THR.

“Elba and his 2HR SET team are taking a stand to speak out against this epidemic,” according to the brand. All proceeds from the campaign go toward Faron Alex Paul’s organization to prevent street violence.

Elba and his stylist, Cheryl Konteh, previously dished with The Hollywood Reporter about collaborating and the actor being involved in the fashion creation process.

“You’re so passionate about clothes and you always want to push the boundaries,” Konteh tells Elba during the conversation, “and you always want it to look on point and to be the best it can be, and you wear clothes really well. You’re confident in them because you love it and you have a passion for it.”

In related news, the trailer for Elba’s upcoming musical movie Cats dropped Thursday, and folks across social media have dubbed it both hilarious and scary — watch below.

Meanwhile, “Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw” debuts August 2.
