OutKast’s Andre 3000 Launching a Clothing Line
If you’ve ever wondered, “Where can I get a pair of tailored lime green riding pants?” Look no further. Andre Benjamin, AKA Andre 3000 — the quirky half of hip-hop duo OutKast — is launching a clothing line called Benjamin Bixby.
The line, which the multi-faceted rapper-turned-actor is extremely close to, is set to hit Barneys this fall. The rapper picked out the fabrics and sketched the designs for the 70 piece Bixby line, so fans will have an opportunity to own a piece of Benjamin’s unconventional style. Bixby will feature some of Benjamin’s style, which he describes as “classic spontaneity” and “rebel gentlemen.”
“[Bixby] is a character who’s kind of like your uncle, or your granddad, and he has a closet full of experiences and clothes, and he’s been around the world,” Benjamin told New York magazine. The rapper also promises to release a solo album sometime this year.
