KISS bassist/vocalist Gene Simmons is coming out with his very own clothing line! The line's called: Money Bag Clothing and looks ghetto fab...not rock at all but very urban, fantastic! His inspiration? Fubu of course!
The line features shirts that look a lot like a generic rip-off of the Ed Hardy design. Not to worry, there's even a messenger bag that's covered in tacky money bag print...not exactly the hottest thing to be caught on your shoulder!...just sayin'. The line hasen't yet launched but will at Wasted Space in the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Vegas and we have all the details right here.
Just a quick question..who's he trying to pitch this line to..really, who does he think is going to be wearing this crap...TI, Bone-Thugs, Jay-Z? Ummm...that's great, because last time I checked Gene Simmons was a rock-star not a rap-star! Jay-Z could get away with putting out a line like this but Gene Simmons..not so much. Maybe Gene should just stick to singing or better yet, step out on the Hollywood scene and take some style inspiration from rock star ex Velvet Revolver frontman gone solo style icon: Scott Weiland; who's paired with English Laundry and coming out with a killer clothing line that rocks!
Simmons previously stated, "I have owned the trademark Moneybag logo for over 25 years. I have used it on my magazines, book imprints, my record company and a few other areas. Until I met Jason Dussault, I held off on really going out into the marketplace with an apparel line." With that being said, that would have been a great idea, he should just stuck to singing...he obviously needs some style icons to set him straight if this is the best he can came up with. He went on to say: "It has to do with finding a kindred spirit and Jason is it. He and I share a passion for only doing things in life that mean something." Yeah, that didn't sound gay or anything..lets just leave it at that. He didn't stop there, Simmons just couldn't keep his trap shut and went on to say: "Together we are creating cutting-edge, in-your-face fashions."..maybe in his own eyes, but hey...that's all that matters...right?
Moneybag is the bold premium apparel line that is a partnership between Dussault Apparel and Gene Simmons. Designed by Jason Dussault, the line includes hoodies, T's, belts, wallets, purses and hats.
He will however be hosting a launch party for his Moneybag clothing line on Wednesday, January 28 at Wasted Space inside the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.
