Hip-hop hats (and we’re not talking bunny ears)

On until March 19 at the Columbus College of Art & Design, there’s an interesting new exhibit called Bling: Sampling Hip-Hop Fashion and the Urban Aesthetic. It examines how “the music of hip-hop drives the fashion industry and how it has shifted fashion as a whole.”

“Hip-hop (fashion) is all about the best,” said Beverly Smith, fashion editor-at-large for Vibe magazine. “It’s about luxury and it is more sophisticated than what many people want to give credit to. It makes a political statement.”

Well, I’m gonna put on my Kangol and go break some hips! Wanna come?

Thanks for reading,
