Future's formal style

Published 08/05/2016


Music star Future has been experimenting with his taste in clothes.

Rapper Future thinks suits are a "step forward" in regards to his style evolution.

The 32-year-old music star often rocks dapper ensembles, such as his Rat Pack-inspired Ermenegildo Zegna tuxedo with a white jacket and black trousers at the Met Gala on 2 May (16). He may have a streetwear collaboration with Neff Headwear, but Future's choice of aesthetic has definitely become more formal with time.

“As you get older, your style starts to evolve, and I’ve always seen suits or the fly business look as a step forward for me, so I love it,” he told, adding he's taken inspiration from stars such as Outkast members Andre 3000 and Big Boi with his play on colours. “That’s what I’ve been doing: experimenting and trying new things, but at the same time staying true to a signature look that fits me and owning it.”

Speaking about his Met Gala suit, his explained the priority was the cut and fit as those are the details he pays most attention to. He's a big fan of Italian fashion house Zegna and the brand's identity, which he feels sets them apart from competitors.

As far as his streetwear collaboration goes, Future follows in the footsteps of fellow music artists such as Drake and Kanye West with his range for Neff Headwear. Everything from T-shirts to accessories are on offer, and he shared his desire to expand his career in fashion to Pret-a-Reporter at the end of last year (15).

"Eventually yes, I would launch my own brand," he smiled. "But the time has to be right. Quality is everything to me and I perfect everything I do. So when the time is right, I would definitely consider launching a line or collaboration.

"My style is a part of my music. You can't be an artist and not put any thought or effort into the way you appear. Even if it comes off natural, everyone has a fashion sense. I've been conscious of that since day one, I’m into fly s**t."
