  1. i'm living in brasil now. here, some ppl don't give a fuc* about original designer clothes. provided it is fashionable rappers influence a lot around the world. with this wave of supreme, yeezy etc young people becoming interested in fashion is incredible.

  2. Uh, for those who know, LV owns houses going back decades. The company doesnt need any help AT ALL. It was doing phenomenal before "hip hop" decided to ghetto it up meaning knock offs. Help? Wow
