Lyric Jeans has signed a deal with leading music publisher EMI to use its catalogue as inspiration for its garments.

As part of the deal, Lyric will imprint EMI song lyrics on its jeans, with each pair designed to reflect the artist and song's personality and style.

"The timeless words of these songs have touched and influenced so many people for decades," said Lyric president Hanna Rochelle Schmieder.

"We are honoured to be able to offer millions of fans around the world the opportunity to make a fashion statement by wearing apparel inspired by some of the greatest songwriters of all time."
