Biden-Harris Inauguration Merchandise: Streetwear Designs, 'Party Boxes' and Friendship Bracelets
With just under a week until President-Elect Joe Biden’s inauguration, the first batch of official inauguration merchandise is now available. The Biden-Harris camp put fashion first with their products, consulting designers to make streetwear-inspired apparel items.
The incoming president and vice president once again relied on designs from Joe Perez, Aurora James Gabriela Hearst and Victor Glemaud, who designed some pieces for their campaign back in September, according to HypeBeast.
A lot of it features current apparel trends like busy designs with multiple imprint areas (such as sleeves), and tie-dye.
The prices range pretty dramatically, too. You can get a magnet with “46” and fireworks in the background for $5, or a silver medallion with Biden’s face on it for $1,200.
Despite the hip designs and eyebrow-raising price tags, though, the most interesting product is actually a little friendship bracelet.
That might not make sense right away, but some might remember in 2019 when Biden posted a picture of “Joe” and “Barack” friendship bracelets.

The odds of Joe Biden himself sitting down and braiding thread together to make this are slim. But, it was a funny little touch for supporters, and now it serves as a clever callback. Designed by Roxanne Assoulin, the “Come Together” bracelet runs for $35.
Other items include the "Deluxe Inauguration Party Box" (featuring a number of branded items and printed products), a set of wooden blocks and, of course, a fanny pack.
