and fashion have long been inextricably linked. And the Boston scene is no
exception. The 25th annual Boston Music Awards were a celebration of that
intersection of music and style, with five floors of performances, drinks, and
creative expression. Here, the fashion statements came through as loud and
clear as the songs.
"I'm inspired by old-school style: early hip-hop and
jazz," says Aaron, one-half of hip-hop duo the Urban Nerdz.
From the ground up, he wore
leopard loafers from Thom Brown, black Levi's, a
thrifted blazer (from a $15 three-piece suit), and a custom studded-collar
shirt from Asha Isabella.
Like iconic artists from
early hip-hop's heyday, Mr. Campbell is all
about statement jewelry. And there's a lot of sentimental value to his everyday
essentials: a ring from his grandmother and one from a close friend, plus a
necklace and a bracelet the Urban Nerdz designed with local line Ari by Aryana.
His gold grill makes appearances at special occasions only (the BMAs
qualify, of course).
