After weeks of rumors, it’s official: Rapper Wiz Khalifa is set to debut a new clothing line at a runway show on June 10 in Los Angeles, reports WWD. The line will be a collaboration between Khalifa and L.A.-based streetwear labels 424 and Pleasures, and will debut as part of a two-day music and fashion showcase presented by Made L.A.
Details on Khalifa’s line are scant right now, but we do know that it’ll be unisex, which is so very Gucci of him, and items from the collection will be available for immediate purchase at the event and online, so Wiz is clearly down with the whole “see now, buy now” thing.
Since Wiz started working with L.A.-based stylist Lauren Matos in 2015, he is now serving a hip-hop spin on the louche ’70s ladies’ man look: think immaculate white three-piece suits, vintage gold jewelry, and yes Kanye, still skinny jeans – but now they’re by Saint Laurent.
But more than anything else, Wiz has made one item his style signature: the “party shirt,” as he and Matos call it. It’s a loose, printed silk shirt, which Wiz often wears unbuttoned to the navel — the perfect silhouette to show off his gold chains and tattoos. I’m predicting party shirts might make an appearance in the new collection, along with the inevitable merch inspired by the true love of Wiz’s life, weed. May we suggest the following convenient carrying case in handbag form?:
Mark your calendars — starting June 10, we can all wear cool pants, or atleast get some that look just as good, LOL!
