For anyone who wants to snatch a page from Leon Bridges’ style book, Garderobe fashion rental service will do you better: how about taking clothes straight from his closet?
The Grammy-winning recording artist from Fort Worth will be renting some of her touring outfits through the site starting Friday. Among the looks listed are his BODE embroidered pants and jacket (pictured above), which Bridges wore to the 2019 MusiCares Person of the Year tribute, and the color block Dickies jumpsuit he wore in “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon”.
A custom Wrangler denim jacket emblazoned with Bridges’ “Gold-Diggers Sound” album cover, KAPITAL lace-up pants and other vintage pieces will also be available for rental.
Of course, you have to be Bridges’ height, unless you go for the oversized look (Bridges is about 6 feet tall, so renters can expect sizes medium or tall). The cabinet is keeping prices between around $20 and $70, and proceeds from each rental will go to The Big Good, a Fort Worth-based charity run by Bridges and TCU football coach Gary Patterson that focuses on improving the lives of children and families.
Bridges’ partnership with Armoire comes shortly after 2012 Miss USA and Miss Universe winner Olivia Culpo dropped off products on the site, the proceeds of which benefited EndoFound. Since its launch in 2019, Armoire has featured thousands of pieces ranging from dresses and shoes to bags and headwear, mostly owned by social media fashion influencers and a few celebrities. According to the New York-based company, Wardrobe aims to be a more sustainable alternative to shopping for clothes, “by partnering with real people around the world to give a second life to the seldom-worn luxury items they already own and encouraging people to buy less.”
Bridges articles will be available here from Friday.
