Unexpectantly, we took a trip back into the retro raw talent and culture of the 90s when Bruno Mars debuted the remix of his soul-funk inspired single, Finesse from his album, 24K MAGIC, featuring the rising street icon, Cardi B.
Fresh off her third number one on the charts, Cardi B brings the eccentric street style that defined 90s hip-hop, unleashing a spontaneous urge in her flow reminiscent of Lisa “Left-eye” Lopez, a sorely missed powerhouse of 90s Rap/Pop. Not only the fifth single dropped from the acclaimed album, Bruno Mars debuted it with a paint-dripped dedication to 90s hit sketch comedy show, IN LIVING COLOR, where he and his cast of dancers took up the larger-than-life shoes of the Fly Girls (including Jennifer Lopez) and the Wayans Brothers.

All-new show, all-new wardrobe! Last Wednesday, the BLACK-ISH spin-off, GROWN-ISH. debuted its first two episodes, showcasing the eldest fashion-forward Johnson, Zoey (played by BLACK-ISH’s Yara Shahidi), as she matriculates to college far more ignorant than she might admit.
The show debuted on ABC’s sister network, Freeform, and if anyone expected this shift to mean the normative BLACK-ISH appeal in a younger body, GROWN-ISH graciously disappoints with an ensemble of trendsetters whom visualize GUCCI, IVYPARK, BALENCIAGA and more in casual classroom looks, revolutionizing the college aesthetic in just one day of syndication.
Best to remember: featured on the cast are the likes of fashion forerunner, Luka Sabbat, millennial icon, Yara Shahidi and Beyoncé proteges, Chloe x Halle. With this kind of creativity, the fashion will follow.
Catch GROWN-ISH on Wednesdays 8PM/7C only at Freeform and peep Lonzo Ball’s new hoodies inspired by Yara Shahidi’s cousin, Nas.
CEO and Creative Director for the Pan-African inspired boutique, No-Tribe Clothing, Prince Marcus London introduced the premiere ensembles for his “Prince Collection” this last month with a vibrant take on classical west African garb and textiles.
The much-anticipated collection from the highly lauded line borrow the Afro-inspired aesthetic of full-body patterns layered with the spontaneous color combinations the great American aesthetic. The collected looks count the Hieness Royal Shirt amongst its number, capturing a detailed aberration across its thick clam white fabric. Never to be outclassed, the outerwear includes the Palace Coat, a tantalizing black-and-white winter jacket complete with a comforting, evenly geometric pattern, and the Royalty Jacket, an elegantly Versailles inspired golden lined bomber kissed either with a brilliant crimson-or-black trim.
