Through the birth of the male antihero, complex character development, and social commentary on American culture, The Sopranos forever altered the course of television. But when it comes to fashion, The Sopranos probably isn’t the first series that comes to mind.
With looks extending from Adriana’s signature animal-print outfits and Carmela’s pastel matching sets to Christopher’s stacked gold chains, it’s safe to say that the show is iconic – and so is its style.
Mob mentality and high fashion go hand-in-hand on The Sopranos. The characters are infatuated with designer labels and luxury goods: Adriana’s love language is diamonds, Tony’s go-to “I’m sorry” gift is Louis Vuitton, and we can’t forget Carmela’s iconic fur coat moment.
Sure, some of the looks embody traditional Italian mobster stereotypes – think rhinestone-embellished french tips, silk button-downs, and velour tracksuits – deemed gaudy at the time of the show’s release. Now, the New Jersey-suburban wardrobe, circa early 2000s, is popping up on Fashion Week runways and the streetwear scene. It seems The Sopranos predicted today’s trends more than two decades ago.
Keep reading to see how the Sopranos cast is influencing current fashion. And don’t forget to watch one of TV’s greatest shows, available on HBO GO and HBO NOW.
Bad Bunny, Julieta Venegas, and Tainy’s New Single or Its Music Video
Tainy has turned out another hit. The reggaeton producer and songwriter previously collaborated with Selena Gomez, J Balvin, and, more recently, Shawn Mendes on singles like “I Can’t Get Enough” and “Summer of Love,” and he’s now enlisted Bad Bunny and Julieta Venegas for a love song with a true internet-age title.
“Lo Siento BB:/” was released on Oct. 5 in tandem with a music video that’s basically like if Where the Wild Things Are were a lot sadder. Though the song is lyrically heartbreaking – detailing the push and pull of romance – it’s hard to not want to dance along to its bass-heavy beat. See for yourself and enjoy the music video above.
John Cho Transforms Into Spike Spiegel For Netflix’s Live-Action Cowboy Bebop Series
After years of waiting, we’re finally getting Netflix’s live-action Cowboy Bebop series. On Monday, the streamer shared the release date and photos of the cast in action, including the first look at John Cho as Spike Spiegel.
Casting for the project was first announced back in 2019, but production was eventually delayed after Cho sustained a knee injury on set.
