It is not the culture is indebted to hip hop, but rather it is that hip hop is culture. So indelible is the mark made upon society by an art form originating out of the rubble of the Bronx in the early 1970s that without out it culture would be unrecognizable. The November 2017 issue of Vogue Nederland pays tribute to hip hop through the lens of fall fashion in a story starring Aiden Curtiss photographed by Marc de Groot. Aiden is not one to shy away from electronic music, let alone its myriad stylings. As such, she is at home in this story to which she lends her considerable elegance. Wearing an oversize cap in nylon and cotton by millinery maestro Stephen Jones, Aiden (pictured) dials back the decades to an era when the Subway trains were murals and B-boys were kinetic sculptures dancing about street corners.
