Steal His Style: Drake
Drake’s style evolution has been a widely discussed subject. For the past few months, we have seen the Canadian rapper decked out in Stone Island, Nike, Adidas and of course his own brand OVO (October’s Very Own). He’s worth $100 million and one of the most famous musicians in the world, so why would you not want to dress like him?
When he wore the Moncler Maya jacket in his 2015 video Hotline Bling, the jacket sales soared, indicating that Drake is a huge style inspiration among the masses. According to an article on High Snobiety, a Moncler spokesperson said the Maya jacket had doubled in sales since the video release. Since wearing Moncler, Drake’s style archive has vastly grown. He’s known to favour the occasional piece of Stone Island, you only need to look at his Instagram to see just how much he wears it. It’s strange to think that a brand that has been for years famously associated with British youth culture is now on the backs of the most famous US rappers, (Travis Scott and Kendrick Lamar have also been seen donning the Italian brand). Recently Drake has been sporting casual style, kicking back in a pair of Adidas three stripe joggers and a neutral hoody.
Drake takes streetwear to a new level, mixing simple tees and jeans with baggy silhouettes, layering denim jackets over hoodies and oversized checked shirts to give a whole new vibe. His simplistic look is sometimes vamped up with his range of Stone Island. Only recently he posted a photo of himself in a scarlet red Stone Island corduroy style shirt. A few weeks back we saw a whole new side to Drake as he stepped out in a tailored style coat, trousers and Chelsea style boots.
