Stapling a celebrity’s name on a piece of clothing is becoming trendier by the minute. That is why we have great respect for the celebs who gets down and dirty and actually design their clothing lines. Andre Benjamin delivered his design debut of Benjamin Bixby in a heavy whiff of late 1930’s college football inspiration, and we may say it’s successfully gotten our full attention. The line was launched last week, at the NY Fashion week, hosted by Charlize Theron, and is now available at Barney’s.
We say the line is very illustrative, fun and very unexpected. And we are excited for the men’s paperboy hats. We also love the classic suspenders!
Hope this won’t be a one-hit wonder.
