Here we go again.
Vogue Italia says "rapper style" is making a comeback and is giving readers a step-by-step guide on how to get the look.
But first, they give readers a brief history about how the style came about:
"Rapper style is making a comeback next season; it was launched in the 90s with basketball champion Michael Jordan appearing in commercials for Nike. Since then rappers have invaded the world with their hits proposing not only their sound but also their style."
Facepalm! That doesn't even make sense.
But wait there's more! Vogue was generous enough to provide a list of where you can by "rapper style" fashion:
The cult-garment: low-slung pants, no matter if ample and wide like the Ashish model, paired with a glitter sweatshirt, or in a more feminine version like the graphic print jumpsuit by Lamb, pants should never be tight-fitting, see those sported by Jay-Z.
Pair with fur: the two-tone black and white shaggy coat by Michael Kors or the silver jacket with gray fur details, or the sporty hooded sweatshirt by Blumarine.
The details: black sneakers embellished with stones, by Lanvin, and the top-handles handbag in neon yellow and fuchsia PVC on a black background. Or the minimalist engraved leather hold-all with silver zips, by Alexander McQueen.
Accessories: visor sunglasses, like the tortoise shell model by Illesteva , and the golden necklace with word motif by Moschino.
This is just bad. Vogue Italia really needs to stop with these ridiculous articles.
