Over the past few months, foul-mouthed rapper, Azealia Banks, has certainly been making her mark not only in the music industry, but the fashion as well. Her mermaid locks first made their fashion debut back in January, when she performed her youtube sensation hit '212' at Karl Lagerfeld's house in Paris to celebrate his new 'KARL' collection, which recently made it's London debut at Selfridges on Tuesday to also celebrate the launch of his olympic-inspired collection to be stationed on Selfridge's third floor.
It isn't the first time we've seen Alexander Wang and Banks as a duo, back in May, Wang took Banks as his date to the NY Met Ball, with her looking as hot as ever in a custom made dress and shoes by Wang. Personally, I couldn't think of a better collaboration, as the video for the T by Alexander Wang proves. Azealia's no nonsense attitude never fails to come across in her style, and it didn't fail to on this occasion either. As for Wang's upcoming T by Alexander Wang collection for the next season, it looks as though we can expect the usual high standard of his brilliant basic pieces with a slight nod to the 90's with his cute crop tops, I also spied a fantastic black bomber in the vid, which, I can tell you now is going to be on my wishlist!
As for Azealia Banks, the video also acts as a preview for her long awaited 'Van Vogue' video, and it is deemed to be greater than her previous 'Liquorice' video, also directed by photography legend, Rankin. Azealia took to twitter to express her excitement for the music video release, tweeting that "The van vogue video is my best yet! I'm so excited !!!!!".
As far as I'm concerned, I didn't think it could get much better than her marvellous music vid for epic track 'Liquorice', but it seems the collaboration between Rankin and Banks is force to be reckoned with. I for one, couldn't be more excited for when the Van Vogue video drops.
