Videos That Inspire.

Back again with another influential video, and this time it’s something for the guys. Lupe Fiasco first hit the scene in 2006, with the Grammy nominated single, Kick, Push. Along with a hot track, he brought along the idea that black folk can skateboard too. No he wasn’t the first to be doing it, but he was in the best position to get dudes still wearing tall tees and hanging at the trap, to go ahead and wash those tees in hot water and go hang at a skate park. I personally thank him for that. Though in true stubborn, black boy fashion it did take a while to catch on, but as other contributers such as Pharrell and Kanye took a part in the movement it has slowly become a trend.

Unfortunately, the original video with the original track couldn’t be found so the above video is a remixed version but you still get the same feel. Here are some designs from the brand, Stussy, which is now one of the most sought after clothing lines by black skateboard fanatics. Check them out and tell me what you like.

Videos That Inspire.

So every now and again there is a video produced by some “iconic-being” that is the portal to some new fashion era. In 2007, Beyonce Knowles put in place the ideal that when females steps out they should put on a dress that makes the guys want to freak’um. With this came a video showcasing how and what to wear to make this work just right. Now, every time I’m at a club or see one of my homegirls on the way there, I see nothing but breast, legs and thighs; all that’s missing are the wings.

‘Freakum Dress’ is Urban Couture’s first video that has inspired a new fashion craze but it won’t be our last; and in true Urban Couture style, I must leave you with some places to find your very own freakum dress. Keep in mind that this season’s freakum dress is a more sophisticated approach, but will still bag you that guy at the bar. Betsey Johnson has been making dresses for awhile now, but she has now grasped Beyonce’s ideal with this season’s collection. Check it out!!!

Free Your Mind…and the Rest Will Follow.

En Vogue put it best when they released  “Free Your Mind” in 1992, but it took America 16 years to let it sink in. This past November we elected our first black president, Barack Obama, and it kind of makes you ask yourself if people have really become more open-minded. I say all of this to talk about all of the diversity we see on the runways this season, and we’re not talking about the one token black. Designers that are apart of the revolution include, Betsey Johnson, G-Star Raw, Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, Oscar de la Renta, rag & bone, Tory Burch, Y-3 and even Tommy Hilfiger, just to name a few. Check it out. (Pictures ordered as named.)
