We have being seeing a reoccurring trend of entertainers getting into the fashion industry by creating clothing that best represents their personal style. Lupe Fiasco fits perfectly into that equation after creating his brand Trilly and Truly. His main motivation, since he was growing very tiresome of what was out there was to create a comfortable clothing line that embodied the Japanese street wear aesthetic. Lupe is not a believer in mass production. Instead he would rather produce one of a kind/limited edition pieces to be sold in a small number of boutiques providing that exclusivity to the consumer. Lupe is scheduled to release his new collection called “Overthrown Junta” and I have a sneak peak of two “badass” pieces. Biker Jackets are very popular this Fall/Winter season and Trilly and Truly introduced the camouflage leather jacket and vest. Now exclusivity always comes with a price these items will retail between $3,000 and $4,000 USD. Some stores in the US are expecting them to arrive in store within the next three weeks.
