The Revival of a Street Luxury Brand: Sean John.

The Revival of a Street Luxury Brand: Sean John.

Hello everyone out there, as always it’s good to see you. I’m back with another one , and this time im speaking on a brand that made a major impact on the fashion world from the time it was introduced. Welcome to The Revival of a Street Luxury Brand: Sean John. From day one when I first saw Sean John introduced in Vegas at The Magic Show Fashion Convention, I was a major fan. But what made this brand such a success was the image of the lifestyle being sold with it, and no one was better at selling you a luxury lifestyle ,a complete image than it’s owner Sean Puffy Combs. From music to music videos all the way up to fashion , he knew how to sell you a complete lifestyle and image. The same way he sold you the image of his artist on Bad Boy Record’s , is basically the same formula he would later use to sell you the idea of a street luxury brand , and it worked. It worked so well that the brand amassed millions in a short period of time and gained the attention of the CFDA, naming Sean Puffy Combs menswear designer of the year in 2004. From there the brand began to branch out into womenswear , hit the runways of New York Fashion Week and the brand was licensed to make a fragrance , eyewear , shoes and jumped into the men’s suiting and dress clothing lane successfully. But like any brand that comes out swinging, there comes a level off period , where the brand looses popularity. In this case when Sean Combs sold off a majority stake in the company to Global Brands Group. The problem with making a move like that , the company that takes over dose not have the same vision or passion for the brand, so the brand begins to loose it’s way. But that’s about to turn itself around, or so it possibly seems.

With Combs buying the company back out of bankruptcy for 7.5 million$ , the question is does Sean Puffy Combs still have what it takes to revive and breath new life into this once power house street luxury brand ? Well that’s what we will have to watch out for and see. Hopefully you watched the video all the way through for the extra added bonus content.

Fashion between the panels: BEAT STREET

Fashion between the panels: BEAT STREET.

Hello everyone out there , as always it’s good to see you. I AM JMADDD STYLES , & you are currently reading my latest blog post. Fashion between the panels: BEAT STREET , for this installment of Fashion between the panels, I am once again taking you on a journey between the panels of yet another film classic ( BEAT STREET ) , and pulling out the fashion to show you just how the looks from this film of yesterday, can still be fashionable and relevant today. This film was ground breaking when it hit theaters on ( June 8 , 1984 ) , because it was among the first films to bring the culture of Hip Hop , to the big screen for the masses to see and appreciate. But along with bringing you the culture of Hip Hop , it gave you a broader view of what is encompassed in the culture of Hip Hop. Meaning the importance of the DJ , the then fascination with the art of street dancing aka ( Breakin ) or Break Dancing. But the hidden gem in the film was the unique fashion and style that was associated with being an MC , DJ , or a kid that had killer Street dance moves. It was the beginning of true Street Style or what is now called Streetwear. A form of fashion that would later take the fashion industry by storm and eventually become a major financial stake in the fashion game. Once Streetwear and Street Style , caught the eye of the masses their was no slowing down , it would only get bigger , just as big if not bigger than the other components of this thing this phenomenon that we call Hip Hop . That is the backdrop of this new blog/vlog , going between the panels of this movie and bringing back the Street Style of then , and showing you how that same look translates to now. But I can show you better than I can tell you , so below, take a look at my latest fashionable production , Fashion between the panels: BEAT STREET.
