Vic Mensa raps through his clothes

Street View is a fashion series in which Isa Giallorenzo spotlights some of the coolest styles seen in Chicago.

An outfit always carries a message, and Vic Mensa—who played the Pitchfork Music Festival on Saturday—seems very aware of that. "Gun Control by the NRA" and "Sponsored by Fannie Mae" are written on his pants—he's basically rapping through his clothes. Aesthetically the look really works too, with all the red fonts on the white background, and a feminine pair of sunnies à la Kurt Cobain toughened up by his attitude and combat boots. Last year the main fashion trend was a lot of normcore and 90s; the year before, flower crowns. Now . . .  to each their own. Some microtrends I noticed were fruit prints, matching sets, and McDonald's themed garments. Yes, McDonald's. And not in a normcore way.

See Vic Mensa's pants up close and a bunch of other distinctive dressers below.
