Billionaire Boys Club x Kirk Knight
Happy New Year and all that, we’re back once again to bring you the usual content spanning from fashion to design – and a few other things in between. Billionaire Boys Club dropped this leather MA-1 at the tail end of last year and, to me, it’s indicative of their European operation pushing the brand in the right direction, through understated classics and the right blend of hip hop references. BBC has always been a brand synonymous with music and in recent months their collaborative efforts with the likes of Boy Better Know and in-store Yung Lean performances has shown a desire to support the cutting edge of the rap game. Here, Kirk Knight of Pro Era – fronted by Joey Bada$$ – models a sleek, monochrome MA-1. It’s another example of their youth-led reinvention, which has eschewed the trap of simply using Pharrell to sell garments and has presented a clear and exciting vision for the future of the brand.
