With his debut album Long Live A$AP debuting next week and a supporting slot on Rihanna’s Diamonds world tour in march, underground rapper A$AP Rocky is ready to launch himself into the mainstream circle of music in 2013.
He’s made a bag full of celebrity friends since then including Lana Del Rey, Drake and Usher, but more notably fashion designers Alexander Wang and Jeremy Scott are really close to the rapper due to his very unique style to which now every designer loves seeing him in their designs.
Rocky is really being embraced by the fashion world for his looks/views on style which we here at PAUSE couldn’t agree more with so below we have a few ways you can achieve A$APs ‘Designer meets Street wear’ look.
1. The Oversized Tee:
A$AP is always seen in a nice printed oversized t-shirt.
This look can be achieved by scoring one of Marq rise’s luxury tee’s.
2. The Slim Fitted Waxed Trouser:
This is always a must for the rapper who used to have to order them from europe in his teens as nowhere in his hometown used to stock them.
We’d go for these Rick Owens Waxed Jeans, a bit pricey but would be a nice investment to your wardrobe. £237, www.luisaviaroma.com
3. The Hightops:
They look great with waxed denim so it’s a no brainer that A$AP is pairing them with his favourite Margiela’s.
Check out these beautiful Margiela High-Tops. £343, www.mrporter.com
4. The Hat:
He loves to wear an eccentric snapback on when performing on stage to catch the crowds eye.
