Andre 3000 has done it again. One of the most fashionably creative men in the world, André Benjamin, just showcased his new line Benjamin Bixby last week in NYC at the world renowned Barneys. Aside from having the dopest name in the fashion world [Billionaire Boys Club step off!], the line is very well thought out and has a lot of promise. The name alone gets 10 points right from the jump. Benjamin Bixby? The name is just so smooth. Smoove like a mink….or eggs.
Still keeping true to his preppy style that he started with fellow ATLer, Fonzworth Bentley, Benjamin said to be also inspired by football players from the 1930s, which is why the collection has a collegiate theme.
Benjamin chose a hot air balloon as the logo because “the customer doesn’t know where he’ll land.” I’m sure you know coming from André Benjamin that this line will not be for you Jim Jones/Ed Hardy/white v-neck types. This line will be consisting of, and I’m sure not limited to, preppy wool sweaters, corduroy blazers, high waist trousers, dress shirts, and polos. This line will definitely be for the fashion forward, because influences have shifted from the retro 80s inspired clothes to quality threads of the pre 1970s and Europe in the 1960s. If you don’t believe me peep Kanye at the VMAs?
