Haute fashion will be seen with a little more bling, little more glam and little more hip hop. When Snoop Dogg and Karl Lagerfeld collaborated in our midst, it was only a matter of time before we see hip hop music and glamour on the runways of the haute couture world.
Lagerfeld hooked up with Snoop Dogg in St. Tropez to film a scene for his latest music video, he (high profile fashion designer – Lagerfeld) was all decked out in white at the popular vacation spot while he was filming a scene for the hip hop legend new single, titled “St. Tropez”.
|The other hip hop artists to have broached the haute couture fashion barriers are –
Lil’ Wayne revealed that the leopard print jeans which he had adorned to perform at the MTV VMA’s were actually women’s jeggings! This is the rage with all women as it is very versatile and baggy hip-hugging style by Tripp NYC and it is still available for sale.
Kanye West is another rapper who has the hots for women’s clothes and who is getting ready to launch his debut collection for New York Fashion Week. Kanye is in partnership with British designer Louise Goldin for the debut, where they are setting shop in Goldin’s London studio. The secretive launch will be held in NYC very soon.
The fashion world and the rap music world are crashing into each other and creating a whole lot of blinged out couture. This is one of the third notable intersection between rap and fashion. Soon to see many more artists rock the ‘Fashion World’!
