IN THE HOOD: The hoodie is as much a clothing staple as it is a divisive cultural symbol and streetwear icon favored by youth subcultures and Silicon Valley entrepreneurs alike. Now, it’s getting its own exhibition at the Het Nieuwe Instituut in Rotterdam, which opens on Dec. 1.
The Hoodie, which runs until April 2020, traces the garment’s history, starting with its role in 1930s workwear. A selection of designers including Rick Owens, Off-White and Vetements, and makers such as Bogomir Doringer and Campbell Addy will have hoodies on display.
Depending on who’s wearing it, the hoodie can be an indicator of profession, personality and values. More so than any other garment – except, maybe, jeans – the hoodie sits at the intersection of gender, ethnicity, age, and geography. Sometimes, it can even be a provocation.
“Today, we don’t associate black leather jackets with the outsider, they’ve been normalized, evoking a specific class and market. Hoodies, however, are touted as a trend – while also being demonized,” said Lou Stoppard, curator of the exhibition.
The exhibition aims to challenge viewers on who wears the hoodie, and what it represents. Digital footage, social media posts, and the garment itself are used to explore the role of

Gucci Mane’s next project Evil Genius is just a few weeks away from hitting the streets so you can expect the ATLien to begin churning out new work in the coming weeks to build a buzz for the December 7th release.
Holding court in what seems to be an abandoned church, Gucci Mane and Kevin Gates get things lit while seemingly ready to commit sin with the thick young women in attendance for the clip to “I’m Not Goin’.”
From the south to the north, Tory Lanez throws a little soiree in his home where A Boogie and a bevy of young women join him for some red light special fun in the clip to “If It Ain’t Right.”

Few things in this world are as comfy as a hoodie. Weekend staples like a sweatshirt and track pants are no longer just for couch potatoes. Smart pairings and accessories can dress up what was once a purely casual look.
The soft, zippered layer with throw-on ease even has its own built-in weather shield. It’s a go-to, but the wrong one can call to mind an unemployed gamer.
Thanks to renewed attention to casual clothes from the biggest brands in fashion, it’s not hard to find an upscale iteration, such as the Sunspel Men’s Cotton Loopback [$ 225; sunspel.com], worn here under a luxury overcoat like this feather-soft cashmere one from Ermenegildo Zegna [$ 4,695, zegna.com].
It’s a slam-dunk combo of unfussy comfort and effortless cool.

Such is the case in the visuals for “Yeah Yeah” where we find Don Q and A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie link up with 50 Cent and Murda Beatz taking it from the streets of New York to the strip club.

As Rapsody waves goodbye to a 2017 that witnessed her establish herself as one of the top female MC’s in the game, she gets ready to show and prove in 2018 that she ain’t no fluke.
In her visuals to “Sassy” the MC from NC has some fun after a year of all work and hits up a house party and a diner with her crew while dipped in some Cross Colours-ish looking gear.
