Versace Biggie Sunglasses: Get the Look
So, what is the hype surrounding Versace Biggie sunglasses? Let’s get into the details. We would presume that if you have found yourself on this page, you are well aware of the hip-hop icon, Biggie. You may also know him as Biggie Smalls, The Notorious B.I.G., Big Poppa, or simply Christopher Wallace.
Christopher George Latore Wallace had power in his lyrics, and style in his music videos, and brought a new era to the hip-hop world. Born in 1972 in Brooklyn, New York, Wallace, a high-school dropout and ex-convict, rose to superstardom once he started to take his passion for rap seriously following signing to Uptown Records record label. By expressing his stories through his lyrics, Biggie quickly became a sensation.
The rapper had a close connection to icon and fellow member of the rap scene, Tupac Shakur in his early days before they had become involved in a West Coast vs East Coast hip-hop feud. Shakur expressed that Biggie was heavily influenced by him, particularly style-wise. In fact, in one of Tupac's singles, he makes a point to mention that Biggie replicates his Versace style in particular. It is clear that Versace was heavily influential and popular on the 80s/90s hip-hop scene.
Biggie Smalls Fashion Style
80s hip-hop style is an influential look that many people, worldwide, continue to wear and replicate to this day. For Biggie, alongside his music, image and style were a huge part of him and his aesthetic. He continued to express his fashion sense by rotating his favourite designers and brands, representing them to the fullest. He is predominantly known for rocking Coogi sweaters, Timberland Boots, and large black bomber jackets paired with wool beanie hats. However, one brand that The Notorious was known to sport regularly was Versace.
Alongside Tupac, "Biggie cemented Versace's reputation as an icon of hip-hop style..." He was also one of the first rappers to attend the luxury houses fashion show back in the day.
Seen in oversized garments, much like everyone else on the hip-hop scene, Wallace was a huge fan of the Italian luxury fashion house. He was pictured occasionally in Versace print silk shirts paired with a pair of sleek shades - usually black with gold detailing. Thankfully, Netflix are allowing viewers to take a trip back in time with their “I Got a Story to Tell” documentary released back in 2021. The hour and a half documentary displays Wallace’s life, bringing attention to all of his much loved looks. In the meantime, let us introduce the real star of this post…
