Hip hop fashion / Moda u hip hopu

For those of us who grew up in the '90s, hip hop fashion will always be a bit of bling-bling: gold chains, visible panties' line, fresh kicks, sagging jeans and bandanas. Just think of Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac Shaqur. Girls and young women looked up to Aaliyah, Salt-N-Pepa, En Vogue and later, Destiny's Child. These are just few, but you get the point.

Za nas koji smo odrasli u devedesetima, hip hop moda uvijek je predstavljala sjaj i raskoš (bling-bling): zlatni lanci, vidljivi natpisi na donjem rublju, hlače nisko na stražnjici i bandana marame. Sjetimo se samo Notorious B.I.G.-a i Tupac Shakura. Djevojke i mlade žene uzor su nalazile u neprežaljenoj Aaliyah, te grupama Salt-N-Pepa, En Vogue i kasnije, Destiny's Child, da spomenem tek par.



Today, the rules have changed. Hip hop stars are nowadays flashy in all sorts of different ways than twenty years ago. Today, they are rocking innovative designers, breakthrough designs, but two things definitely stayed the same: accentuated sex appeal and love of all things gold.
Jay-Z has evolved from a '90s star to a true gentleman, especially after marrying the best in the female R&B league, Queen B.

Pravila su se u međuvremenu promijenila. Hip hop zvijezde danas sjaje drukčije nego prije dvadeset godina. Nose inovativne dizajnere i pomaknute krojeve. Dvije su stvari ipak ostale iste: naglašeni seksepil i ljubav prema zlatu.
Jay-Z napredovao je od hip hop zvijezde devedesetih do pravog gentlemana, pogotovo nakon vjenčanja s najpoznatijom ženom R&B-a, Queen B.






We are even ready to forgive Kanye West the fact that he is about to marry the most famous starlet (whose style he thoroughly changed), because his style is almost always impeccable. He even collaborated as a designer of Nike, Louis Vuitton and Giuseppe Zanotti shoes.

Oprostit ćemo Kanye Westu što će se uskoro oženiti najpoznatijom starletom (čiji je stil temeljito preobrazio), jer mu je stil uvijek gotovo savršen. Sudjelovao je i u dizajniranju Nike, Louis Vuitton i Giuseppe Zanotti cipela.








Rick Ross and 2 Chainz represent all things lavish.

Rick Ross i 2 Chainz predstavljaju sve raskošno i pretjerano u hip hopu.




Big Sean and Tyga are new generation hip hop stars who have fun with fashion with unexpected mix and matching and almost cartoon-ish style.

Big Sean i Tyga nova su generacija hip hop zvijezdi koje se zabavljaju modom, te spajaju gotovo stripovske kombinacije.


And finally, the biggest fashion head of them all - the young and fresh A$AP Rocky himself. He has turned hip hop fashion world upside down, mixing designer fashion with street style and doing it so fashionably right. Remember those "Comme des F*ck Down" hats? Thank A$AP. He has had such an impact on fashion world that there is an entire tumblr dedicated to his fashion style. Pictures will tell more than words can, so enjoy his eclectic style.

I naposlijetku, najveća modna uzdanica - mlad i svjež A$AP Rocky. preokrenuo je modni svijet hip hopa spajajući dizajnerske komade s uličnom modom, čineći to nevjerojatno dobro. Sjećate se onih "Comme des F*ck down" kapa? Zahvalite A$APu. Imao je ogroman utjecaj na modni svijet, te mu je posvećen i tumblr. Slike govore više od riječi, pa uživajte u njegovom eklektičnom stilu.
