In October, I spent a few minutes with friends in a replica of T.I.’s closet at the Trap Music Museum noting that of all the artists featured, he was the only one with suits, ties, turtlenecks 🙌🏾 and cufflinks on display. I could sense that while great style is important to most, it’s imperative to him…and I dig that!
This month, I had the opportunity to costume for Tip’s new rap reality competition series on Netflix, which also features Big Boi, Killer Mike, Quavo and Rapsody. For the first day of shooting, he wore a grey cashmere turtleneck under a Hideoki Bespoke grey wool suit with pinstripes ✊🏾 and black Ferragamo chelsea boots. My favorite part of this look is Tip’s diamond and gold hasma chain. Tailored to perfection and fresh! 👌🏾🙌🏾
It was truly an honor to work with the King of the South, and to watch some of Hip Hop’s biggest icons pour their wisdom and skills into the next generation of artists. Rhythm & Flow premieres September 2019.
