During most of the video the boys appeared on stage, in front of a live band wearing black and white ensembles. If they weren’t already show stopping with the latest black and white trend for the spring and summer months, Kendrick Lamar made sure he pulled out all the stops in his ‘Guns Germs $teal’ outfit.
Kendrick’s look had very old school west coast vibe, with the button-up top and shorts, in a new school design. The monochromatic print on the outfit dazzled me. It is so rare for a man to take a risk like that and I loved every bit of it.
Here’s a screenshot from the video
Printed two-pieces has been a trending style for a little over a year, and I am happy to see it crossing over into the wardrobe of men. I think it is a fairly fresh look for men, and not fresh as in “dope”, nor funky fresh, but as in a fresh of breath air. More men need to take risks when it comes to style!
Men, check out Guns, Germs, $teal to get the look and similar pieces.
And ladies, don’t let some of these styles fool you, you can pull it off too.
One thing that surprises me that I really like about this line is that it is designed by women. Philippa Price and Smiley Stevens, two young ex-models who started out designing men’s accessories, which eventually turned into a whole clothing line that debuted in May of 2011.
The line is inspired by 90’s street wear, while still keeping present and future styles in mind. Their pieces have landed on the backs of many celebrities, such as 2 Chainz, Big Sean, A$AP Mob, Rihanna, Rita Ora and many more.
Here are a couple screenshots of their Spring/Summer 2013 line.
I really like this line because , although it is urban, it has a creative twist to it. I’m a patterns type of girl, and the aesthetics are crazy! I see this line being very successful over the years and the creativity flourishing.
