CCL Giveaway: Serious Pimp!

A brand that is inspired by many MMA legends, and more recently: rapper Snoop Dogg. Introducing Serious Pimp to the CelebrityClothingLine readers. The cool brand is out with its newest collection, but before we get into things, let’s get to know Serious Pimp better, shall we?

Tell us a bit about Serious Pimp.
We are a sunglass and apparel company that focuses on OG style street wear. We started with the legends of MMA; The Gracie Family, Tito Ortiz, Rampage, Chuck Liddel and more. The President of the company is Snoop Dogg. Our biggest supporters in the hip-hop world are Snoop Dogg, DPG, Three 6 Mafia, and Bishop Don Juan. We have new and exciting clothes coming out for the summer. We are also going digital with SP Records!

You’ve endorsed male celebs so far, which female celebrities do you think embodies the spirit and soul of Serious Pimp?

LMFAO

Celebrity Designer Spotlight: Rod Benson’s BOOMTHO Clothing and GIVEAWAY

The hardest challenge for celebrity clothing lines is how to have a full staying power. When our editors saw BOOMTHO by pro basketball player, Rod Benson, we all agree that BOOMTHO will stay relevant for a long time due to its awesome mix of streetwear, skate and popular art. And not just clothing, BOOMTHO also consists of accessories and fun gimmicks to add fun in its collection. We chatted with Benson about BOOMTHO and trust us, you’re going to want a piece of the brand.

How did BOOMTHO start?
In college, a group of us started saying a bunch of stupid things. BOOMTHO was one of those things. We made a music video with it and never looked back. It was a movement.

What would you describe as the line’s main swagger?
Colors. We never fit in. We stand out. Big prints and bright colors are a surefire way to not look like anyone else.

Which celebrity do you think BOOMTHO identifies the most with?
Will Smith / Fresh Prince. Or maybe Sidney Dean ala “White Men Can’t Jump.”

 

Being a celebrity designer, which other celebrity would you like to collaborate with in terms of fashion?
Man, I think Kanye has some crazy ideas that can only be fully understood if you talk to him face to face.

Who’s your favorite fashion designer?
I really like Marc Jacobs. I just wish they had more stuff my size.

What does BOOMTHO has in store this season? What’s coming up next?
Our 3 piece tank tops our going to be huge this summer. Longer, fitted cuts, and bright colors and tribal prints. I’m excited to rock my own stuff.

Find more BOOMTHO at the brand’s official website: www.boomthoshop.com. Keep up to what they’re up to on Twitter and of course, LIKE them on Facebook. You know you want to.

Floyd Mayweather Adds Ice To Custom Watch Collection

Boxer Floyd Mayweather loves his ice and during a recent trip to New York, he stopped by Flawless Jewelry to pick up a custom timepiece jewelry.

Mayweather shopped at the Diamond District and met up with Flawless Jewelry owners Greg & Eddie. He made time to go through some exclusive custom pieces.

What’s your dream jewelry?

The Slouch Beanie

Ever since Johnny Depp burst onto the scene with the slouch beanie, and Zac Efron pulled off looking more shabby chic than grungy bum, this practical men’s accessory has become a celeb staple.

According to Loren Ridinger of MyFashionCents.com, “The trick to wearing a floppy, knitted skullcap? Pair it with something basic and uncomplicated.”

Ridinger also mentions the functionality of this cap when it’s cold outside. However, if you’re like the other stars who frequent or live in the warm and sunny Hollywood, style over function will win here.

Stars like Jake Gyllenhaal, Orlando Bloom, Pete Wentz and Joseph Gordon-Levitt have been rocking this trend for years, according to Ivete L. of trendhunter.com. “[Beanies are] making an impact on streetwear,” says Ivete. “We’re seeing slouchy beanies and slouchy newsboy caps in addition to more wacky takes on the oversized hat trend.”

If you’re loving this trend but stuck looking like your head deflated, check out the YouTube tutorials on how to wear this style. The “Tutorial For How To Wear An Oversized Beanie” by TOPMAN should help out.

“Slouchy beanies are fun, fashionable, can be thick and warm for the winter or light and breezy for spring and summer,” says slouchybeanies.com. “Whatever your preference, one thing remains the same… slouchy beanie hats are seriously funky, majorly laid back and lots of fun.”

Brightly colored tuques (as they are sometimes referred to in Canada) pair up nicely with a simple, well-fit tee and relaxed jeans. Check out the photo from sneakoutfitters.com below.

Be sure you know what you’re buying the slouch for, however. I.e. purchasing a double-layered knit tuque from the Canadan Tremblants may not be too practical when attempting the style in the Caribbean. In that case, opt for an authentic rasta beanie.

Slouchybeanies.com is the perfect place to get “oversized beanies, long beanies, baggy beanies, rasta beanies, slouchy hats, slouchy berets, chunky hats, plus ski, skate and snowboarding beanies,” according to the site. “Basically, if it slouches and goes on your head, we have it!”

Kimora Lee Simmons Got a New Gig!

Everybody please congratulate Kimora Lee Simmons for her newest venture: as
president and creative director of JustFab.com, a Manhattan Beach – California-based company, a division of Intelligent Beauty. Looks like this has been going on for a while before it’s even announced as we heard that the post was created for her from the outset of the company’s launch in March 2010.

Kimora said:

“I can’t even remember my official first day in the office, but I feel like this has been months in the making. We [she and Intelligent Beauty co-founders Adam Goldenberg and Don Ressler] have been talking about this for a very long time.”

Kimora Lee Simmons is also an investor in JustFab.com, a members-only website that enables customers to purchase its in-house brand of shoes, bags, sunglasses and denim for $39.95 per item and free shipping.

In case you’re curious, every piece in JustFab.com is curated by a team of fashion consultants led by Jessica Paster, a celebrity stylist. The next brand expansion would be coustume jewelry which will be launched in October, so it’s got almost everything!

JustFab’s Don Ressler stated:

“We knew from the beginning that we wanted to have a fashion icon, not just a celebrity face, as our president and creative director, and we always had Kimora in mind because she brings her experience as a model, designer and personality to the table. The fact that she has her own followers enhances our model of creating a trusted and interactive relationship with customers.”

About her availability to her fans, Kimora comments:

“My fans know that I’m real and that they can reach me anytime. I want the JustFab community to know that too. That’s really me giving fashion tips, talking to them in the ads, answering their questions, wearing the product. But that’s what I love about this new world of social commerce. It’s constantly changing and you have to keep up.”

From all of us at CelebrityClothingLine.com, a heartfelt congratulations to Kimora, we’re proud of you girl!
