• Benjamin Bixby Spring ‘09 Collection

    Andre “3000″ Benjamin visited Holt Renfrew Bloor Street to launch his “Benjamin Bixby” menswear Spring 2009 collection on March 10, 2009 in Toronto, Canada.

    [Seen first at HipCandy]

    I’m liking what I’m seeing here from Benjamin Bixby’s new collection.  While his entrance into the market created his initial buzz, the designs were simple but not yet fine tuned.  The result was a respectable Ivy League collegiate look, but a little bit stuck in the wrong decade.  From the looks of it, Bixby has made the proper adjustments: offering some twists on his signature diagonal check polo, assorted colors of his plain polos, and a much more casual cool approach to his pieces.  This marks the shift of Bixby marketing clothes that other people can actually wear, rather than clothes that would only look good on Andre 3000.

    The side-part is included with purchase of a Bixby polo.

    Dude I missed him when he came to San Francisco! That was a HUGE fail.

    He was in SF when he went to revealed his collection at Bloomingdale’s. My friend was invited, but relayed the information not in time. FML.

    Cool! Andre 3000 has such a unique style, I hope that translates well into the clothes.

    We’re rooting for him as well.

    I’m still waiting to see the collection hanging on the rails but again I like what I see from Mr Ice Cold.

    Oh awesome! I think he and I were separated at birth…and…mothers. Also I’m pretty sure he was born a few years earlier than I. Anyways, Mr. Benjamin is a great dresser, too bad he can’t bottle his attitude to go along with his clothes.

    Dang I wonder what attitude you’re speaking of. He seems like a pretty cool dude.
