Nas isn't taking the rapper infiltration of the fashion world with his arms crossed. He has partnered up with Jace Lipstein of Grungy Gentleman to design a 33-piece collection of high-end menswear he's named HSTRY. The sleek sportswear items include coats and vests with quilted leather details and neoprene, soft fleece and leather hoodies, and other contemporary accessories like backpacks, ski masks and beanies.
"Clothes represent happiness. They're our protection — even a reflection of what's in our heads, our thoughts and ideas. Hence the phrase, 'wearing our hearts on our sleeves,'" Nas said. "With HSTRY, I'm embracing our greatest moments recorded in time in the form of premium street fashion."
Nas' line will be available on Grungy Gentleman's e-commerce site and HSTRY's own online shop beginning August 1 with pants, shorts, T-shirts and jerseys already in the works for next spring.
Think Nas' line will sell out as quickly as Kanye West's A.P.C. collection?
