The physicality of the Wikipedia collection is tied to a single long-sleeve shirt that strongly references the popular online encyclopedia. The launch of the not-for-profit platform's apparel is done in collaboration with Los Angeles-based fashion label Advisory Board Crystals. The piece is the first extension of Wikipedia into the material world and thereby, it is a noteworthy development.

The contemporary-influenced and graphics-accented long-sleeve shirt is available on Abc.'s website for $80 USD. All proceeds of the Wikipedia collection are going to the Wikimedia Foundation. The money will be used to fund the organization's operations. Currently, the online encyclopedia is powered by volunteers around the world and through generous donations. This extension into streetwear is a clever campaign to keep knowledge accessible and free for all. The fashion-forward Wikipedia collection would definitely be ideal for the college freshman.
