Justin Bieber is no stranger to sampling styles. From his Fonzarelli red carpet look to his James Dean-esque “Boyfriend” promo, it’s clear that Bieber loves to borrow from the old and make it new again. Just yesterday, J.Biebs was spotted in London rocking a particularly inspired ensemble. The shutterbugs across the pond went nuts as he stepped out wearing head-to-toe signature Adidas racing stripes, a mismatched tracksuit, bold eyewear, and immaculate white kicks – a look that outright smacks of legendary hip-hop group Run-D.M.C.
While Run and the gang typically sported the all-black look, Biebs gives it his own personal spin with a black jacket and red pants. He also ditches the signature Run-D.M.C. chains and millinery which keeps it from looking too overtly costume-y but also kindles a sudden urge to see Bieber in a Kangol hat. For footwear, Justin shirks the Superstar steez that was the beloved muse for “My Adidas” in favor of his staple high-tops that wink back at the OG style. The outfit isn’t an exact replica by any means, but you can definitely sense the undertones of homage throughout. What do you guys think of Justin’s inspired ensemble?
