Check’n My Fresh…….

There is this big myth that “fashion” does not exist for men… Lie… Men are as relevant in fashion as women are relevant in history.  And just like a woman, a man should have certain foundation items in his closet. My item of choice is definitely the cardigan.  And no I am not talking about the Bill Cosby rendition. I am talking about the more fashionable, chic edition. Trust me men this is one item you need in your closet. It can be dressed down to give the nerdy/skate-boy look or it can be dressed up to give that preppy/gentleman look.  Cardigans don’t require much underneath them ether, usually a basic tee-shirt will do the job. Some of my favorite designer cardigans are Polo/Ralph Lauren (you can personalize your cardigan with your name and symbols), BBC (Billionaire Boys Club) and Banna Republic to name a few. But you can also be fashion forward at a discount and find amazing cardigans at H&M and Zara!  Here are a few of my fav celebrities rocking cardigans the right way… Gentlemen pay attention, because cardigans are a style staple that is here to stay..

Jay-Z said it best…You can pay for School but you can’t buy class! Pharell is full of class in this Classic Cardigan.

 

Kanye said.. Swagga on a hundred  thousand, trillion… Lance Gross swagger is evident! He is not afraid to take a risk with bright, bold color.

T.I. said he was Living revolutionary… Nothing less than Legendary… Ushers style is revolutionary… He sets trends and is ahead of Fashion!

Nigo founder of BAPE

 Bathing Ape opened it’s doors in Beijing China.  Nigo the creative designer and founder of BAPE  began the company back in 1993. BAPE become real popular in the Hip Hop culture after rapper Pharrell introduced everyone to the Milo hoodie back in 2006.  After that BAPE became very popular throughout Hip Hop culture. Pharrell and Nigo partner up to create BBC (Billionaires Boy Club) and Ice Cream.

Nigo has manged to keep Bathing Ape relevant  with stores in London, New York, Hong Kong, Taipei, Shanghai, Seoul and Singapore.  It will be interesting to see how the Chinese market responds to BAPE considering they are known for having high demand for luxury items. BAPE has more of an influence in street culture. The designs are hoodies, jeans, tee-shirts and sneakers with original art work which usually consists of  cartoon caricatures .  Nigo has plans to expand and dedicate more resources to his children’s line due to the fact that the streetwear market is becoming over saturated. I think that BAPE will do well with their children’s line considering the fact that the designs already uses cartoon characters, which I am sure will appeal to a younger audience.  With Nigo constantly thinking out of the box I can see BAPE progressively moving forward in Fashion.
