Dipset's Vado recently discussed how he is battling the winter weather and what type of gear fans can expect to catch him in through these cold days.
According to Mr. Slime Flu himself, he is whipping out the iconic flight jackets for this time of year.
"Well right now, we're in the winter. I'm in the winter mind frame right now, so I've brought the bomber coats that was popping in the eighties with the fur collar. I'm definitely doing those right now for the winter. I aint figure out where I'm going right now as far as the spring and summer, but I know it's gonna be hard. I've been dealing with Hawke & Dumar clothing, as well as Strivers Row clothing. I really like their style. I'm gonna put some pieces together and make something incredible. That's what Harlem dudes do--we're trendsetters." (VIBE)
He also discussed some of his all-time favorite clothing brands.
"To be honest with you, right now I'm still wearing Rugby. I got on Rugby right now as we speak [Laughs]. Until February, or whatever date [winter] is over with, I'll be doing Rugby, lot of Gucci,Louis [Vuitton], Fendi accessories & belts, Audemars [Piguet's], Hugo [Bos's], No Labelwatches, G Shocks--it don't matter. You just got to put it together right. It don't got to be too expensive. It could be affordable; as long as you do it right, you good." (VIBE)
This week, former Dirty Money member Dawn Richard told SOHH she predicted 80's style clothing and fashion would bark its way into people's closets.
"I think less is going to be more. In fashion, a lot of people have been mix-matching colors and doing a lot of 80's styles. The 80's kind of came back. Everybody is doing a lot of different colors and I think people are going to start doing less is more, with their patterns and what they're wearing." (SOHH's 13 Things To Watch For In '13)
Recently, Harlem rapper A$AP Rocky gave his take on today's fashion trends.
"I put Wayne in Jay-Z and Kanye's bracket, in terms of success. Wayne is still fun. Are we forgetting that Wayne made everybody switch their flow up and start using the E's and R's, and "I'm ir-regul-ar, seg-ular"? Like, c'mon, are we forgetting that Wayne changed hip-hop, too? Are we forgetting that he made all these motherf*ckers want to have tattoos? Are we forgetting that? It wasn't Wiz [Khalifa], it was Wayne. Wiz did it, too, but I'm just stating facts. This is a guy who f*cking went from being the youngest underdog in his crew to saving his company, and saving his "Daddy." I'm not a f*cking Lil Wayne d*ckrider--I'm just speaking facts." (Complex)
