What are Clout Goggles?
How do you use i. Click To See The Answer! Clout Goggles are a style of sunglasses with large, round, white frames and dark lenses, named by rapper Denzel Curry but iconically worn by rocker Kurt Cobain in the s. In June , rapper Denzel Curry appeared in a YouTube video wearing the distinctive white, round sunglasses. Rocker Kurt Cobain of Nirvana wore the white shades, notably in his last photoshoot before his untimely death. Some people humorously photoshopped Clout Goggles onto celebrities. Others noted the trend to comment on fashion and image in popular culture.
Who Makes Them?
Twenty years after Kurt Cobain's suicide , it was his oversize, fuzzy mohair sweater that designers couldn't stop reinterpreting. Then it was the former Nirvana frontman's shredded jeans and flannel shirts, most notably during Hedi Slimane's tenure at Saint Laurent. But in , the music icon's oversize white sunglasses —which he was photographed wearing just before his death— are officially back. But even before their official reissue, brands like Acne Studios , Raen , and even, yes, Saint Laurent were already offering up riffs on the distinctly un-grunge silhouette. The shades were instantly scooped up by Nirvana diehards, stylish guys, plenty of folks who had no clue of their provenance, and some of the hottest up-and-coming rappers like Playboi Carti , Lil Pump, Lil Yachty, and Denzel Curry. Like Cobain—or perhaps influenced by mavericks like him—these guys dress however the hell they want. They're catalysts who start trends instead of being followers of them—and they're turning the white round plastic sunglasses into something else entirely. For starters, the shades go by the name Clout Goggles. Early last month, Denzel Curry wore the rounded frames, claiming, "These ain't glasses, baby, these are Clout Goggles" in a clip posted to YouTube. Two-and-a-half weeks later, on June 27, the term Clout Goggles got its official Urban Dictionary definition "A pair of white sunglasses that mumble rappers wear".
