Fashion and Hip-Hop are not quite siblings, but more like very close cousins. Together, the bond is unbreakable. Even far apart, one still finds a way to influence the other.
AllHipHop.com goes “Fashion Forward” to keep you up on the latest rockable gear:
As the Summer time rolls around everyone wants to make sure they got their gear right. A dope T-shirt and a snapback for the fellas, maybe some nice kicks. For the ladies with some cute shorts and a tank, you can't go wrong. Maybe a sundress? I'm just saying... I always liked them. Either way, warm weather, the beach, sippin' on something tropical (or smokin' on that fruity)... gotta love summer.
But, no summer would be complete without us co-signing some more gear we think is dope. Over the next few weeks, AllHipHop.com will be showcase several clothing companies that have hot gear for the summer, so you can show off those muscles or that body that you been working on all winter... or not. No matter what, "We're so proud of you," as Drake reminds.
To kick things off in the South, we look at the Dallas, Texas-based clothing company, Matrimoney, that seems to be popping up everywhere. From The Game to Curren$y to Mac Miller to Chiddy Bang to Killa Kyleon, and Dorrough, the guys at Matrimoney have laced up the stars. Nowadays, the Whos-Who of the game are all being spotted wearing the Texas-based company's gear.
Putting an innovative twist on streetwear by incorporating a touch of class into each design, founders Geoff Garber and Will Bolt, collaborated in ’05, at the youngin' age of 15, to bring to life a sophisticated new line. Inspired by their desire for a better way of life, the line caters to all shapes, sizes, and colors.
Matrimoney vows to stay married to the millis by modeling their business from one of moneymaker John D. Rockafella's famous quotes:
“I BELIEVE IN THE DIGNITY OF LABOR, WHETHER WITH HEAD OR HAND; THAN THE WORLD OWES NO MAN A LIVING BUT THAT IT OWES EVERY MAN AN OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE A LIVING.” – John D. Rockefeller
