You may, or may not, have heard of Places + Faces. If you haven’t, all that is soon to change, mostly thanks to a new collaboration centred around Xbox, Game Pass and Xbox Cloud Gaming.

Launching on October 22nd 2021, London’s seminal label will drop a new custom Xbox Wireless Controller and Capsule Collection which is based on Places + Faces iconic bag designs. One of its most exciting collaborations to date sees Ciesay and Soulz, two of the brightest contemporary talents in the lifestyle, fashion and music space collaborating with Xbox on a range of exclusive gaming accessories and apparel, all in order to celebrate the synergies between Xbox Cloud Gaming (beta), included with an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate membership, and the digitally mobile ethos of Places + Faces.

Places + Faces is a brand that has built an engaged global community which encompasses photography and film, parties and festival performances, magazine production, along with their apparel line which has reached cult status. The community is built around some of the world’s most inspiring talent and includes both aspiring and recognisable names including A$AP Rocky, Maya Jama, Mowa Lola and Playboi Carti.

“We’ve been fans of Xbox since we owned our first Xbox back in 2002. We wanted to create something special and exclusively designed around the controller. We wanted to create something that inspires both of our communities; a true collaboration between our brands,” explains Ciesay.

So what should we expect? Well, the drop will consist of a dedicated Cloud Gaming Pouch bag that will ensure you can play anywhere on your mobile phone or tablet, bringing to life the Places + Faces ethos of freedom and self-expression. The design will be based on the Places + Faces iconic bag designs and this limited run will come bundled with a Places + Faces Customized Xbox Wireless Controller and 1-Month of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. And you know exactly what that means – access to a library of over 100 high-quality games to play on console, PC, and mobile devices including the now standard day one releases from Xbox Game Studios.

It looks to be some sharp kit too with the Xbox Wireless controller’s orange and red gradient design paying homage to the film cameras that Ciesay and Soulz love to shoot on. The design is a reminder of the magic of shooting on film when travelling and seeing those colours over the developed images. There will also be a limited run of hoodies and T-shirts too

The items will be sold exclusively online from October 22nd via You can get them shipped globally too.
