Andre Benjamin (also known as Andre 3000) is taking part in the latest ‘Declare Yourself’ campaign which urges American youths to cast their vote as to who should be the next President of their country.
Andre 3000 was interviewed by Simon Mills recently in the Guardian talking about the fashion tribes at his school, his influences and dress sense as part of OutKast.
Estelle, Ozwald Boateng, Nat Weller, Tolula Adeyemi and snowboarder/model Charlotte Dutton were some of the names who came to Harrods for the launch of André Benjamin’s Benjamin Bixby menswear line.
André 3000 as he is known to Outkast fans turned up looking suitably retro in turned-up jeans, green polo and a dogstooth jacket.
As news of Benjamin Bixby continues to trickle out, Mr. 3000 is finally beginning to do interviews about the clothing line. American Esquire’s interview is far from in-depth (with a grand total of two questions) but it’s better than nothing. Check out the interview after the jump.
Scott Schuman had a starstruck moment recently when he snapped André Benjamin outside a shop on the last day of Pitti Uomo.
Andre Benjamin, the dapper gent of hip-hop, Hollywood and life has named his top ten essentials over on Style.com. I have to say I pretty much agree with them all, good work Mr 3000!
This is only vaguely fashion related but who can resist Brandish favourites Kanye West and Andre 3000 doing a bit of choreographed dancing? The other partakers in this slightly bizarre video are beatmakers Sa-Ra and P.Diddy’s former butler-turned-singer Fonzworth Bentley. Together they call themselves C.O.L.O.U.R.S which stands for cool outrageous lovers of uniquely raw style.
Non followers of Hip-Hop may be surprised to know Erykah Badu is widely credited with transforming Andre 3000’s – and to a lesser extent, Common’s – style. On the basis of this Complex cover shoot, you could say that Kelis is doing the same for Nas.
Remember that T-shirt trend we featured a good while back? It went from Band members to trainers to TV shows (Although no one took me up on my WIre offer) and now they’ve started featuring song lyrics. If you’ve ever wanted to show your appreciation for Andre 3000 and Big Boi in t-shirt form, this Rocksmith tee is the way to do it.
It’s rare to see a hip-hop artist so readily accepted by the fashion elite like Kanye West has been. The only other contender is Andre 3000. However, Mr. West is on a level of his own when it comes to designer collaborations. In addition to his Air Yeezys, his clothing label Pastelle also has an upcoming sunglasses collection with Ksubi.
In his latest film André Benjamin (pictured at the preview) got a taste for short shorts, the kind that basketball players wore in the ’70s. Semi-Pro was released last week and is a Will Ferrell comedy about you guessed it, basketball in the ’70s.
Huggy Bear, Snoop Dogg, Andre 3000; no matter how old you are, there has always been that outrageously cool, pimped-out personality.
