Looking more Dizzee Gentelman than Dizzee Rascal, the UK rapper attended the Glamour Women of the Year awards last week wearing a very dapper Moschino Uomo suit complete with Armani shoes. Opting for a grey suit while most were in black Dizzee set himself apart from the crowd channelling a little bit of a 1920s look, especially with his black toe-capped pinstripe shoes from Armani’s next season collection.
Speaking to The Nod, Dizzee confessed that despite being dressed by some of the biggest names in fashion, he has plans to launch his own clothing line, “I want to have my own designer label. I want to make money from the clothes I wear. I’ve got big ambitions.’
With these big ambitions in mind it sounds like Dizzee is taking more than just style advice from the big labels, “My clothes won’t be cheap though. They’re the sort of things you’d save up to buy. If they’re cheap, nobody wants them.” Too true Dizzee, too true.
So we’ll look forward to an extortionately priced clothing line from Dizzee in the future, and we’ve already come up with a few names that might work for the line – Bonkers anyone?
