Rhymes, Rhythms, and Runway: Unveiling Farfetch's Tribute to 50 Years of Hip-Hop Style
Fifty years of Hip-Hop has been a catalyst for inspiring some of the most iconic fashion moments in history. From Jay Z's classic tracksuits to Kanye West's Yeezy collaborations, Hip-Hop culture and fashion have collided seamlessly, giving birth to a new type of style that continues to make waves today. With the music genre becoming an international phenomenon and influencing today's millennials more than ever before, it is no surprise that leading fashion labels are paying homage to the trend by creating limited-edition collections that echo the style and soul of it's roots.
Farfetch has taken this tribute even further by launching their own carefully curated collection, bringing together some of the world’s hottest labels and offering superior streetwear with a high-end twist. Combining modern athleisure wear with classic street pieces, this edit gives 50 years of Hip-Hop a fresh edge whilst maintaining its original DNA. Think bold colour palette meets statement graphics and embellishments, as well as luxe fabrics like silk and velvet mixed with vintage denim – all inspired by the unforgettable sounds and cultural movements that have shaped and defined us over the decades.
Hip-hop goes through cultural moments - for example, the shell toes and tracksuits [that] were a big staple for Run-D.M.C. Then in the 2000s, there was Soulja Boy, and everyone wore big tees. Each era has its own impact. - midwxst
