90's nostalgia is everywhere today and within the last decade or so streetwear has become a very well respected fashion subculture and taken so seriously that it's hard to remember a time when it was laughed at or looked down on. Now we see designers like Alexander Wang and others sending down runway looks that were exclusively "inspired" by the hip hop culture and all the ghetto fabulousness that comes with it.
Rapper, actor and street philosopher, Tupac Shakur- who would have been 45 years old today- was a trendsetter who brought street wear and high fashion together in a way that only he could. Just like his music balanced and blurred the lines of political statements, hood reports, materialism, education and all round wildin out- he did the same for high fashion and street wear. Made it for us but understood by everybody with an open mind. This is why we didn't bat an eye when Eminem wore his bandannas or when Yeezy declared himself "the Louis Vuitton Don". We don't mind that our R&B singers who grew up in the nineties are more tatted up with thug life running through their veins than some of the most popular rappers out now. For better or worse, leather joggers are a thing because of 'Pac and here are a few other trends that he started...
