Today's tribute for Throwback Thursday deservedly goes to The Fresh Prince and DJ Jazzy Jeff.
Elements of their personal style is are at a peak right now, expressed both on the runway and in entertainment.
Flat top haircuts, bomber jackets, bright graphic prints, color blocking and even Jazzy's glasses were geek chic early!
Today they inspire rappers The Cool Kids, M.I.A., Santigold and fashion designers such as agiandsam.
Even the original graffiti artwork in the opening sequence of the show and their album covers is often copied.
In the late 1980s, actor Will Smith started his career as a rapper under the name The Fresh Prince. With his childhood friend "DJ Jazzy Jeff" they released radio-friendly songs "Parents Just Don't Understand" and "Summertime" and were one of the first rappers to win Grammys.
In 1990, when he starred in the hugely popular TV series The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, naturally appearing on a major network weekly helped Smith's fashion choices accelerate the growth of hip-hop fashion around the globe.
