Fabolous Preps New Clothing Line ‘Rich Yung Society’
F-A-B-O-L-O-U-S is getting into the fashion game by way of his clothing line, ‘Rich Yung Society.’ The line is said to represent a lifestyle that people aspire to live consisting of pieces inspired by Japanese street fashion as well as items carried in upscale urban boutiques.
The clothing line officially launched in 2006, but the Brooklyn native recently revealed that he has since broken away from his previous manufacturers. “We switched manufacturers because we wanted to get with somebody that really understood the vision of what we [were] trying to push,” Fab said in an interview. “The first guys, they [kind of] didn’t….I think they were just in it to make some money. They didn’t see the whole vision so we switched and now we push it a little bit further. Before we were trying to just keep it a bit more boutique but I think this one we [are going to] go into department stores and make some money.”
Several retailers around the New York City area carry the line, which retails for upwards of $200 per item. The line includes hoodies, t-shirts and fitted baseball caps.
Fab is also riding high on the success of his latest release ‘Loso’s Way,’ which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard charts, selling 99,000 units in one week.
