Season after season, Grungy Gentleman has featured some of the biggest names in sports and music. Staying true to tradition this season, rap icon Styles P opened the show, followed by rapper Dave East, former New York Giants quarterback, “DailyMailTV” host Jesse Palmer, and professional boxer Rickey Edwards. Each celebrity made his runway debut, with R&B artist Brett Gray wrapping the show with a live performance of his unreleased single “Anxiety.”
The show featured Grungy Gentleman’s signature collection, along with eight collaborative collections, including New Era and NBA hats, Pony footwear, Giza slides, Schwinn bikes, Footaction bags and apparel by Renzo Cardoni, Pendleton, and Clinton Hall.
“Our Grungy Gentleman collection this season is a lot more polished than seasons past,” said designer Jace Lipstein. “We injected a punch of color with the peach tracksuit, and we incorporated a lot of red accents throughout. We’re a brand that likes to make the public feel like they can wear it and feel confident in it, and we had a great response at the show. So I’m very appreciative for that.”
