Jay Z the style icon? Riccardo Tisci thinks so.

The creative director of Givenchy sat down for an interview with WWD and spilled on everything from gender boundaries in fashion, to the male celebrities who inspire him. On that list were Jared Leto and surprisingly, Hov. While we’re used to Jay inspiring music artists and moguls, his simplistic yet stylish fashion sense is largely overlooked. But not by Tisci.

“Jared we’ve dressed many times. We are very close and I think he’s amazing. He’s the king of the moment of style. He decides what to wear and he’s got such a fashion sensibility. I’m inspired by him. I think he’s a great guy. And there’s Jay Z, who I really respect very much; I think he’s got a very good sense of style,” he said.

The man behind the famed brand also hinted at another upcoming collaboration with Nike.

“I love. Especially now that I’ve signed with Nike, of course, it’s even a lot more. There’s a really big new project coming up. I can’t talk about it too much, but I’ll probably do two big things with them: One is the worldwide and one is related to a specific country. I mean, this country’s going to be the next big thing, and I really believe in it and so does Nike.”

If the last collab between the two was any indication, Tisci and Nike have some more dope kicks coming our way. We’ll be sure to keep an eye out for more details.
