Hip-hop star Nasir Jones, better known as Nas, has partnered with Jace Lipstein, founder of the men’s style site Grungy Gentleman, on a line of high-end streetwear called HSTRY. The initial 33-piece collection will be available this fall.
The debut designs are heavy on leather outerwear, along with accessories like leather backpacks and leather and wool baseball caps. Sportswear items such as flannel shirts and sweaters incorporate leather panels and elbow patches. Neoprene is used for a peacoat, underlining the sleek, modern look of the collection, while leather ski masks add a hint of stylish menace.
