Now Akers has curated a special collection of her favorite vintage pieces from Black-owned businesses on Thrilling. Launching today, the Chucks and pearls 2021 shirt besides I will buy this curation is inspired by the unity and self-expression of women in hip-hop during the 1990s, according to Akers. There are items that speak to that era from the ’80s too, along with designer gems like a vibrantly printed mock-neck minidress from the Emanuel Ungaro archive. Akers also found a rare Patrick Kelly button-embellished dress, as well as original Alexander McQueen earrings and a corseted Jean Paul Gaultier skirt suit. Everything will live in a dedicated section of the Thrilling website and be promoted via Black Owned Everything’s Instagram account.
