Rhude Spring / Summer 2022 Men. Beverly hills
For his spring / summer 2022 collection, Rhude founder Rhuigi Villaseñor brought Monegasque energy to Beverly Hills, inside a gigantic Mediterranean-style pink estate, where scenes from 1972’s “The Godfather” were filmed.

Among those in attendance were Lena Waithe, Saweetie, Cynthia Erivo, Karrueche Tran, Slick Woods, Big Sean, DJ Mustard, French Montana, Tyga, Tylah Yaweh, PnB Rock, Wale, Thundercat, Wurld, Evan Ross, Shaun Ross, Zack Bia , Elijah Kelley, and athletes Jaylen Brown, Saquon Barkley, Kyle Kuzma, Sterling Shepard, Todd Gurley. Meanwhile, producer Metro Boomin closed the podium.
