Interview: Wiz Khalifa's Stylist Fatima B On The Rapper's Rebellious New Look

He’s definitely wearing a pair of D&G boots in the “Brainstorm” video, and Timberlands on the cover of Taylor Allderdice. Did you style him for both of those?

Yeah I definitely did.

The “Brainstorm” music videolooks like it was filmed on tour. What kinds of things is he

 

He’s definitely in tune with fashion, it’s not like I just come in there and I’m like: “here this is what you’re going to put on.”

 

rocking when he’s on the road? 

Yeah, that’s when we were doing our European tour this winter, I don’t know if you can see my little head in the video. That’s like his day to day though, normally people on tour will have like a costume or one set change, but with him he changes everything everyday. Everyday he’s got a new outfit, so in the video you’ll see him in a Scotch & Soda sweater, James Perse hoodie, Nudie waxed denim jeans, and an American flag bandanna, kinda like what you see in the video. That’s Wiz’s day to day look that we do. 

What’s the story behind the American flag bandanna?

That’s his signature; we both pick it out. He’s definitely in tune with fashion, it’s not like I just come in there and I’m like: “here this is what you’re going to put on.” He has an idea; he’s aware of his image; he knows what he wants to look like, so we both work together. 

Describe a typical day of shopping with Wiz. Do you pick out the stuff, he comes in, tries it on, and picks out what he wants?

It’s kinda like I suggest it to him. I’ll put outfits together or we’ll talk about it beforehand, and I’ll pick it out, and basically show him everything. So if he’s like “I wanna wear these jeans,” I’m like “yeah you can pair these jeans up with this dope leather biker jacket.”

What kind of brands would you say you’ve put him on to?

Wrangler Jeans, Nudie, Prps, Scotch & Soda, Rick Owens.

Where would you say you do most of the shopping?

Atrium — a lot of Atrium stuff. A lot of times we’ll shop overseas, like he’ll send me out, something like that.

Does he still wear a lot of G-Star?

Not as much anymore. In the beginning stage when I first started, I introduced him to G-Star, but not as much anymore. But yeah he still wears it. He wears a lot of TOMS as well.
