The FOX television drama series Empire is liked by everyone, even fashion designers are hooked.
Shayne Oliver, founder and creator of Hood by Air, a luxury streetwear label is so much of a fan that he jumped on the opportunity to make the show’s first branded Empire merchandise.
The 40-peice collaboration is very Cookie inspired.
“Everyone I know was inspired by that show,” Oliver told Vogue. “Cookie’s a boss, doesn’t take shit, doesn’t comply with any sort of male rules.” Hood by Air’s hoodies and tees are marked with the faces of Cookie and other characters, and include quotes from the show as well.
According to Vogue, Oliver also recreated the pillow that Cookie used to try to suffocate Lucious with (first season’s finale) as a backpack.
This show has definitely came and conquered.
