OUTFIT OF THE DAY
Outfit of the day #696
By Matt Glazebrook, 16 January 2016
If anyone's missing any layers, call off the search. A$AP Rocky's probably wearing them.
The rap superstar and fashion-world darling went to a launch event for his new Guess Originals collaboration on Thursday and it apparently took place in someone's really cold basement. No matter, because A$AP came equipped with every bit of winter clothing he owned and – with a typical bit of Lord Flacko sartorial wizardry – made them all look amazing together.
Settling down for some nibbles and a game of Nintendo, Rocky shouted out to the 90s vibe of his collab with an excellent grungy plaid coat. Underneath that he wore a scarf made of several other patterns of plaid stitched together and underneath that a shirt. In plaid.
Underneath that, he basically wore an entire other outfit – black hoodie, white T-shirt, slim black chinos – that offered a crisp monochrome counterpoint to the tartan-y goodness going on up top. Finally, he threw on a cosy burgundy beanie and some adidas Stan Smiths. Winter took one look at the full 'fit and slunk off, defeated.
