He is an entrepreneur and along with Phat Farm and HBO’s Def Comedy Jam and Def Poetry Jam, Simmons has launched a new ground-breaking fashion line, Russell Simmons Argyle Culture. (Check out his site here) Additionally, here is a screenshot. From a designer's POV, I really enjoy the navigation of the site and I took a quick liking to the simplicity and the incorporation of argyle seen at the bottom of the page :
RSAC is mostly urban clothing for men and Elle recently showcased the Spring 2009’s Ready-To-Wear fashion runway show featuring RSAC. There are a ton of different types of argyle... here are some of my favorites boys, er..I mean, argyle pieces :
Totally diggin’ the crazy diamonds and bright blue shorts.
Actually, I recently purchased denim pants of the same color.
Can’t go wrong with purple!
A bit of khaki-overkill, but the socks are kinda cute.
For those who don’t know me very well, I am all about bright colors, so the pieces that Russell Simmons put out intrigued me. I’m not really a fan of the white tennis shoes, but I enjoy the stark difference it makes in comparison to the crazy-out-there-shades of color. My favorite ensemble would probably be the last picture. Though some people may argue that the sweater vest contains just diamonds and not necessarily an argyle-pattern, I like the checkered, salmon-colored button-up and the gray shorts to compliment the sweater vest. I’m not big into accessories on men, but I mean, this guy is obviously TD&H, so who’s complaining? Not me.
