The latest in a string of guest collaborators, the musician's curated selection of psychedelic-patterned pieces goes on sale now.

Brit "It" girl Tennessee Thomas, a founding member and former drummer for The Like, has joined the ranks of Mara Hoffman, Dannijo's Danielle and Jodie Snyder, and Natalie Joos as a capsule collection curator for famed New York vintage event and online retailer Manhattan Vintage. Thomas, a self-proclaimed Manhattan Vintage fan, handpicked 50 pieces from the late 1960s and 1970s to make up the mod- and hippie-influenced collection, including print-splashed dresses, shirts and activist-inspired symbols — think: items emblazoned with peace signs, hearts and vote symbols.

Ranging from $200 to $600, the pieces are available online today through Friday, Oct. 24, which marks the start of this year's two-day Manhattan Vintage Show at The Metropolitan Pavilion in New York.

"I'm currently inspired by the transition from Mod culture to the more psychedelic hippie and activist culture of the late 1960s," says Thomas, an active campaigner for "Get Out the Vote," in a press release. "I feel our generation is going through a similar culture shift, becoming more active in our communities and having our voices heard." Talk about marching to the beat of your own drum.
