It’s no secret Atlanta is the hip hop Mecca, but recently the city has become known for its stylish heavyweights. There are at least five major players out of Atlanta who don nothing but designer, giving the industry something to look at and gain respect from the fashion industry. Rappers of the “New Atlanta” era are putting the streets onto high-end luxury labels and doing it all while drippin’ sauce.
Zone 6’s Future and his oversized fedoras and cowboy hats dubbed “The Future Hat” are making a statement. He was included in a new spread for GQ Style alongside icon Giorgio Armani and was also named ‘One of Most Stylish Men Alive’ by the mag. This year, he was invited to fashion’s favorite night, the Met Gala. Vogue featured his custom-made Italian red carpet ensemble, noting the “Atlanta swag” he always has on deck. He’s constantly dropping his favorite “designa” names in his music and is probably the reason why the streets are even familiar with Hermes and Mason Margiela.
