Please Don’t Touch My Raf.
A$AP Rocky may have shot to fame after the release of his debut solo album ‘LONG.LIVE.A$AP’ and for being a part of A$AP Mob including A$AP Ferg, Twelvyy and more but we all know how much he loves fashion too.
Within months, the A$AP Mob brand blew up. Even though releases are limited and few and far between and designs are simplistic, VLONE can be seen in the wardrobes of streetwear aficionados globally. When the highly anticipated VLONE x Nike Air Force 1’s released in pop-up stores, chaos ensued.
He can go from casual street style to being suited up, effortlessly. What can’t this man pull off?
A$AP Rocky took to designing to collaborate with one of his favourite and most worn brands, J.W Anderson. The collection included a Teddy Fur Jacket, Track Pants, Beanie and more.
This colour coordinated outfit was quite possibly one of A$AP Rocky’s bravest and boldest, featuring a Balenciaga Jacket and Nike x VLONE Sneakers, not only does he have an impressive wardrobe but an understanding of how to coordinate and style an outfit.
Ahead Of The Game
A$AP Rocky is without a doubt, always one step ahead of the game. When Supreme and Louis Vuitton announced their collaboration at Paris Fashion Week early 2017, A$AP Rocky posted an Instagram wearing pants with the Supreme x Louis Vuitton all over print we had seen on the jacket with the caption “THEM PANTS AINT EVEN COMING OUT THO”.
A$AP Rocky was named as one of the faces of Dior’s Autumn/Winter 2016 campaign and he, of course, kills the looks, especially Dior’s infamous eyewear.
Something A$AP Rocky has taught us is that a lot of the time, keeping it simple is best. There’s no need to over accessorise, just keep it to a few statement pieces.
After breaking the Guess website with his first collaboration with the brand, A$AP Rocky released the ‘Ice Cream & Cotton Candy Club’ collection featuring a range of perfect pastel summer T-Shirts, dresses and more. Not only did he have a big part in the designing of the clothes, he shot and creatively directed the lookbook and campaign video channeling 90’s summer vibes.
Rocky made fashion knowledge an important flex, through not only rapping about brands and designers but having inside out knowledge of the industry.
A$AP Rocky wears what he likes, because he likes it, regardless of what critics or fans will think.
