What does a hot rapper, popular singer, and an entertainment executive all have in common? They all wear Gucci. The answer is simple, for fashion lovers that is. Future, Bruno Mars, and “lifestyle specialist” Kenny Burns were all spotted wearing a simple black Gucci shirt. As basic as the item is, popular artists especially in hip hop are gravitating toward Gucci; artists like 2 Chainz and ASAP Rocky. Last year Complex reported “Gucci has supplanted Givenchy as the high end, designer label of choice among style-conscious rappers”.
Gucci has seen a rebirth so to speak and a rise in sales ever since creative director Alessandro Michelle and CEO Marco Bizarri took over back in 2015. That also happened to be the same year we learned that Gucci was the most referenced brand in hip hop. Last year we witnessed Gucci on display in a big way throughout Beyonce’s “Formation” video from the opening scene to the gym where the star and other dancers were wearing Gucci athleisure.
It doesn’t matter if it’s the intricate details of the fabrics, bold prints, or fun fashion ads, Gucci seems to be getting it right. Maybe this is the reason why a simple black Gucci shirt with the printed logo is making it’s rounds with popular industry gentlemen. Fashion Bomb Daily did a who wore it better poll for Bruno Mars and Kenny Burns who paired a basic black classic style Gucci shirt with a bright red jacket. The only difference is Burns wore black distressed pants while Mars wore what appears to be leather green pants with black and white stripes on the side. Both gentlemen also wore several gold necklaces to finish the look.
Future who wore the pullover hoodie version of the shirt was seen on Snapchat wearing his in the studio. He paired the pullover with a pair of rimless shades. The “Washed T-shirt with Gucci print” goes for $420 USD on Gucci’s offcial website.
