If you weren’t sick of seeing your Instagram feed flooded with #WokeUpLikeDis snaps, then get ready to see Beyoncé style all those “Instagram models” you begrudgingly follow. According to British Vogue, Bey is teaming up with Topshop to launch an activewear label called Parkwood Topshop Athletic Ltd, which will include “clothing, footwear and accessories across dance, fitness and sports categories” (in other words, lots of spandex). The collection is slated to arrive in Fall 2015, and will be available in selected Topshop stores and online.

Says Beyoncé of her new venture:

I could not think of a better partner as I continue to grow the Parkwood business. I have always loved Topshop for their fashion credentials and forward thinking. Working with their development team to create and produce a technical and fashion led collection is exciting and I’m looking forward to participating in all aspects of this partnership.

As a huge ’90s R&B and hip-hop fan, the acclaimed designer chose Missy Elliott to provide the sounds — who performed “Get Ur Freak on,” “Lose Control,” and “Work It” during the runway show. The line hits H&M retailers on November 6.

Hip-Hop outlets aren’t the only owns paying homage to Def Jam’s 30th anniversary. The historic record label’s reach expands far past rap heads. Acts like Run DMC, LL Cool J, and the Beastie Boys helped Def Jam penetrate Pop culture—-and added their own twist to hip-hop fashion. Kicking back with GQ, Rick Rubin remembers exactly what the cultured looked like in the ’80s,

Rick Rubin on B-boy style:
Run-DMC, I think, was the first group to establish what we called the B-boy style, more like what the kids in the audience were wearing than what the people onstage were wearing. The people onstage wanted to look more like Eddie Murphy, who wanted to look more like Michael Jackson.

Check out some nostalgic photos from Def Jam’s early days below…
