Swizz Beatz in Balenciaga - FN Platform, Las vegas

00O00 Menswear Blog: Swizz Beatz in Balenciaga 'Join A Weird Trip' t-shirt - FN Platform, Las vegas September 2013
Swizz Beatz / Jim Decker, WWD | Balenciaga Fall Winter 2012

Has Swizz Beatz officially joined the weird trip and going to wear those bejewelled platform heels? The hip-hop artist was in Las Vegas recently and stopped by FN Platform, an industry shoes and accessories trade show. Jay Adoni created a special pair of platform pumps (adorned with gold roses and some bling) for Beatz’s wife, Alicia Keys. And the story is that Beatz collected the shoes for Keys (or so they say...).

Swizz Beatz was pictured with those bling bling shoes in a Balenciaga "Join A Weird Trip" t-shirt from the label's "Egyptofunk" collection, accessorised with a pair of Tom Ford "Henry" sunglasses. The sci-fi imagery first appeared on the Fall Winter 2012 show, one of my favourites under the creative direction of Nicolas Ghesquière. The imagery has since made it's way into some of the menswear pieces. Christopher Kane was spotted in the same t-shirt, so did David Habif, my Instagram pal (shameless name dropping).

Should we all join the weird trip?
