Despite being at the cutting edge of what is trendy, Gun Germs $teal has a surprisingly academic name (presumably coming from Jared Diamonds Guns, Germs and Steel). Nevertheless, the label have the likes of Big Sean and Kendrick Lamar wearing their threads, even (and perhaps slightly embarrassingly) Soulja Boy. Their clothes can only be described as ‘post-apocalyptic bling’; Combining 90’s gangsta rap styles with high fashion. The LA brand has only been around for two years, but still have carved out an incredible, and unique style.

GG$ BIG SEAN

The label really pulled out the stops for their spring/summer collection featuring souvenir jackets which are the perfect summation of their ethos! Available in a gold, silver or bronze; GG$  debut a striped jacket that hails straight from downtown LA 20 years ago, except it has a snakeskin front. The label has provided fans with ensembles that they will no doubt be noticed wearing! The collection also has some practical elements – a few of the jackets can be turned inside out, handy if you no longer want to stand out as much! With en-trend matching track suit bottoms to match – this 100% silk tracksuits seem like a win-win!

Gun Germs $teal thrive off throwing together styles and designs that normally would not be within miles of each other, making it easier for fans to throw on a different combination of outfits, and the juxtaposition will only add to the outfit – normal rules of fashion don’t really apply with GG$’s sense of style being so audacious!

You can guarantee A$AP to dress sharply, and he is here to present tips on how to look good. He takes his Hip Hop philosophy and applies it to fashion – keep is simple, and don’t over accessorise. Be casual when appropriate – and have a hairstyle that suits your personality. Great advice, though copying his look may be a bit unoriginal. Be warned golfers, he isn’t a fan of you.

Remember, never wear the Canadian tuxedo.

Art design, furniture design and Louis Vuitton Jewellery series Blason. His inspirational book entitled The Places and Spaces I’ve Been and recently his YouTube series ARTIST TLK. The man is a public beacon of extraordinary talented individuals who divulge their craft to their vision…and guess what? He just turned 40!

pharrell in style mag manofstyleHis style is effortlessly beyond cool yet like most; in his early successes of his rap music career he wore the looks of Urban/ Street and Skate culture. Growing into a business man or simply just maturing into a successful man for Mr Williams, he has reconstructed him look into the fine youthful gentleman we idolise today. It’s no wonder he was voted “Best Dressed Man in the World” in men’s magazine Esquire.

Injecting dressed-up luxury into hip-hop style and thereby influencing a new generation of guys to consider more than just a pair of baggy jeans a reflection of their youthful vitality.

“Fashion is more about feel than science.”

 Striking the creative scene with his interests of design and artistry not forgetting his book release entitled The Places and Spaces I’ve Been, Pharrell does the same with his own personal style. Predominantly relaxed in various shapes of hats, sun glasses, files of vibrant graphic pullovers, bold pattern/ print shirts and basic tees complete with jeans and sneakers he’s definitely not one to take himself too seriously with his casual outfits. Pharrell also knows how to make formal attire look intensely untouchable. If not in a traditional suit and tie he experiments quality blazers with dark jeans and formal men’s shows. Overall Pharrell’s look is Pharrell’s look! And remains unshaken with confidence because he is comfortable with himself as whom he is and that is the foundation lesson, if any to learn, from this great idol.

It’s never about whether I’m the best-dressed man in the room. Instead it’s about comfort and the flow. That’s the only way to look good.”

Fashion has to reflect who you are, what you feel at the moment, and where you’re going. It doesn’t have to be bright, doesn’t have to be loud, just has to be you”.

Despite the official birthday is April 5th we at PAUSE wish Pharrell Williams a happy belated birthday! And a blessed 40th year.
