Troy Ave’s collaboration with Coogi will be on sale at Bloomingdales and Kith, exclusively.
XXL: What influence did the Coogi brand have on you growing up?
Troy Ave: Coogi was one of those classic “Get Money” brands. We were too young to have cars and Rolexes, but Coogi up there with a Mercedes Benz and a Rolex. Biggie put the brand on national mainstream and all the older heads in the street were rocking Coogi. That was the fashion in the streets when I was growing up in the ’90s. Just being a kid you idolize and you want to acquire certain things when you get older. My mom would spoil me, too, so I would wear Coogi and shit like that and now just to be having my own Coogi collaboration is incredible. Anything is possible if you set your mind to it.
