I must admit its quite refreshing to post something with more Urban swag regards to high fashion! Musician, Art collector, Photographer, and Designer Swizz Beatz graced the stylish pages of Complex Magazine. Simple, yet effective is the main focus. Styled in the major fashion labels such as Dsquared, Maison Martin Margiela, Dior Homme and Givenchy to name a few, each individual look exude fearless swag (garments perfectly fitted without losing that ghetto chic is always a plus).
In the spread it emphasized the integrity Swizz had on lock as an artist. There was one part I truly appreciate when he stated:
” With clothes, I’m not scared of something different. I’m not scared of something that people might not understand. That goes back to my music—people didn’t understand what I was doing when I was doing all of those hit sounds back then. But if I had stopped doing it I wouldn’t have the legacy I do now.”
That statement was the epitome of being an true artist within the midst of the insecure taboo’d living individuals which is what we call “society”. Normally most of the time people will never fully understand those who are not in the NORM LANE as the rest. People hate to figure others out regards to style, speech, or whatever tickle their fancy!
The main ingredient when it comes to style or anything in life is Integrity. Possessing the positive attitude and confidence within yourself of expressing your aesthetic to the world. If we are so focused on diluting for the sake of others, then we are simply cutting ourselves short of inspiration for others.
