Yesterday marked the 10-year anniversary of The Weeknd’s debut mixtape, House of Balloons, and the superstar, whose real name is Abel Tesfaye, decided to celebrate this milestone in the best way.

The collection includes apparel and accessories that feature Daniel’s take on the House of Balloons cover art.
