Andre 3000, one half of the rap group Outkast has announced details on the launch of his new clothing line, Benjamin Bixby.
The line will feature 70 pieces and is expected to launch at Barney’s in the fall. Andre sketched the designs himself and is funding the project with his own money. It seems to me that Mr. 3000, unlike many other celebrities, is not doing this for the money, but because he has a real love of fashion. The clothes will have a “rebel-gentleman” style, similar to Andre’s own. Andre 3000 definitely has an interesting and unique style, so I am excited to see what his clothing line will look like. Do you think Andre’s line will be successful?
