Andre3000, you know, the flamboyant one of Outkast with his hit song “Hey Ya” has created a fashion line that matches his level of flair. You knew about this since last year because I blogged about it in an earlier life. But this time Andre Benjamin has some more info on who should wear his clothing line. Andre has leaning of an Anglophile. He loves the Burberry aesthetic and the Bixby line is filled with plaid items and colors you would only find on a dandy. But I am stalling.
3000 wants none other than Prince Charles wearing his collection. In an unnamed interview he says that
England taught America to dress. You guys showed us how to dress smartly and then we made it cool. We made it less formal, though men know how to wear a suit in London
he also remarks how dapper the royals would look in his collection
“I could see Prince Charles in one of my shirts – top dollar. Wills and Harry also rock. The princes are doing a great job with their looks.
Maybe I can get them into some Benjamin Bixby and they’ll be even cooler. Winston Churchill was one cool dude, too. He always looked dapper”
The charge for celebrity wear continues. Benjamin may be the next casualty at the celebritywear cemetary, but he’s been pretty successful as an artist with all of the things he’s done. Don’t be surprised if you see Charles wearing something in the Bixby line.
