Hip hop circa. 1970
Capturing the zeitgeist of hip-hop during the fight for black autonomy. Kicking against repression responding creatively through rap, break-dancing, MC-ing and graffiti. Street style started within urban subcultures and in the liberty of the black race Hip-hop continues to and to trickle up to high fashion. It is one of greatest products of the urban streets and is the biggest genre of music today intermixing social classes and cultural backgrounds. I celebrate the resonance of hip-hop in this knitwear collection; power dressing tailored street wear luxe.
