Highlighting this week’s street fashion in Hip-Hop; Style Sector meets up with Chicago rapper Lil Durk, for an exclusive interview and editorial on his personal style.
TheSource.com: What does style mean to you?
Lil Durk: “Style means to me, it’s a lifestyle. I look at it as you can express how you are with your fashion. Let’s say if I decided to wear all black that’s how I felt today. If I’m wearing all white I’m feeling up. See I go with the mood”
Q: Are there any prominent brands that you favor and why?
Lil Durk: “Bushimis know what I’m saying, Off-White my top, because I like that it’s different and they denim just cut different”
Q: How would you describe your style?
Lil Durk: “I ain’t got no super crazy a** style, know what I’m saying. I just know how to put sh*t together. Yea like a clean look. Three words to describe my style – clean, bossed, and expensive [laughs]”
Q: How do you feel your style has influenced the culture?
Lil Durk: “I basically just kept it original-that’s more important. Cus you got a lot of people that colored their dreads, and I just really kept it authentic. It’s just something about the whole Chicago wave”
Q: What do you consider some of your top brands or locations where you shop?
Lil Durk: “Off-White, and I like Gucci. Spots to shop?-Barneys”
Q: What do you feel makes your style so unique?
Lil Durk: “I keep it authentic and don’t care what people think. Some may say that shirt don’t match those jeans. Or that you can just go to Balmain and get fresh. But I can mix Balmain with H&M or Top Shop”
