Watch Fans Name the Most Fashionable Rappers in the Game Right Now
The fashion world is well aware of hip-hop's power, especially when it comes to starting new trends among the youth. Now more than ever, big brands are fully embracing hip-hop artists. From major campaign ads to lookbooks and even working with a few artists on collaborative collection releases, hip-hop has made its mark among the top fashionistas and stylists of the fashion industry.
With the likes of Travis Scott appearing in campaign ads for Saint Laurent's Spring 2017 collection and A$AP Rocky starring in Dior's latest global campaign, the young stars of hip-hop are proving why fashion is so essential to their careers and music. Even the veterans in hip-hop don't fall behind in the world of fashion these days, as brands like KITH and ALIFE have previously tapped classic artists to model for their vintage-inspired collections.
Other fashion brands have even chosen to take their relationships with hip-hop's brightest and best to another level, by collaborating with a few rappers on apparel and footwear collections. The most popular of these collaborative releases between hip-hop and a brand is without a doubt the partnership between Adidas and Kanye West. The rapper's union with the Three Stripes brand has been overwhelmingly successful, with both entities looking to continue to dominate the world of fashion and footwear.
Just last week, XXL hit the popular lifestyle fashion trade show in New York City, known as Agenda, to check out the new collection of streetwear brands in addition to those already established.
