It's All About the Benjamin's Baby

Hip Hop Comes to Harrods
I don't usually do men's fashion but there will always be exceptions. In this case, it's Andre 3000's new label Benjamin Bixby. Exclusively available from Harrods in the UK, Andre (one half of Outkast) launched the label in August of this year. I've always liked Andre's individual style and this is reflected in his label too. The first collection is taken from the Thirties era of style, tweed jackets, blazers and waist coats. But it's the crazy mix of styles that really makes it stand out. I love the way he mixes up preppy with "street" wear. I likey!! There's a really good feature on him talking about his inspiration behind his collection in Sunday's Observer Woman Monthly. He says: "I'm a big fan of English style. And Japan is outrageous. They do the prepy thing so well. Putting Japanese or Black kids in preppy clothes is how you get something new. It's like a conversation between cultures - one culture makes and teaches it back to you. It's the same with music."
