For loyal “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” fans, Will Smith has something special up his sleeve. The Aladdin actor is launching a clothing line based on the popular 90s series.
While posting to Instagram on Tuesday (Oct. 1), Smith showcased his newest threads. “I put my thang down, flipped it and reversed it. Then I put it on sale. NEW @FRESHPRINCE MERCH! Link in bio,” he wrote as his Instagram caption.
“This is regular. It’s just a sweatsuit. It’s just a sweatsuit ... until it’s not just a sweatsuit!” Smith says while modeling the tracksuit jacket. The collection pays homage to the uniform that characters Will and Carlton wore while attending Bel-Air Academy. The collection, which is available on Smith’s online shop, features an array of items including t-shirts, shorts, socks and a gym bag kit with prices ranging from $6 to $200.
The impact of “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” does not go unnoticed. Back in April, Smith praised cinematographer, Morgan Cooper, for his indie drama film based on the hit series. “I saw this trailer that Morgan Cooper hooked up, it was called Bel-Air,” Smith said as he stood next to Cooper. “This is the first time that I heard something and I was like ‘Yo, that’s an idea that is brilliant.’”
As the year comes to an end, Smith continues to put the work in. Back in May, Aladdin became Smith’s highest-grossing film. In addition to that, Smith will star alongside Martin Lawerence for Bad Boys For Life, which is set to debut in January of 2020. After months of speculation from fans on whether or not there would be a follow-up film to Bad Boys 2, Smith confirmed the news in a video uploaded to social media. “It’s official Bad Boys 3 is happening, it’s official,” he said.
