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.
