PURE x B.B. Simon
Simon Tavassolia first launched his brand in 1987, however, you might better know him as B.B. Simon, the creator behind the iconic B.B. Simon belts that remain one of the world’s most beloved fashion accessories to this day. B.B. Simon belts are considered both a fashion statement and a work of art because of the rare Swarovski gemstones and precious metals that are used to hand make each one right here in the USA. B.B. Simon belts grew increasingly popular when Hip Hop artists first discovered the Swarovski belts in the early 2000s, which Tavassolia credits to “[needing] to wear belts because they wore very low pants”, and they have been a staple in the culture ever since.

Above you’ll find a bar from the rapper Jack Harlow that flexes the high fashion accessory worn around his waist. However, Jack Harlow is not the first rapper to pay homage to B.B. Simon’s line of luxury belts. Other rappers that mention the belts in their songs are Tekashi 6ix9ine, Lil Uzi Vert, and Lil Teca just to name a few.
