A$AP ROCKY'S BEST AW17 LOOKS
By Kasia Hastings, 8 March 2017
Look 1: Paris Fashion Week Men's
First up, we have our Harlem boy sporting one of the wavier looks from Dior Homme’s rave-culture-inspired autumn/winter collection. As the face of the French label, you’d expect to see Rocky representing, but there are few guys who could wear a lairy printed two-piece like it’s just another wardrobe staple. His black roll-neck, denim jacket and matching straight-leg jeans could be plucked straight out of the golden days of the UK garage scene, but Lord Flacko keeps things feeling nice and contemporary with a pair of monochrome skate-style kicks.
Look 2: Paris Fashion Week Haute Couture
Here we have the menswear maestro rocking up to Christian Dior’s Haute Couture show looking positively elated, and he has reason to be. A$AP’s ability to mix streetwear classics with more directional designer pieces means he’s even earned himself a place among the elite couture crowd. And who would have thought a pair of Nike x Vlone Air Force 1 Lows and white sports socks would complement a faux-fur Dior bomber jacket, graphic roll-neck and punky wide-leg trousers so well? Answer: A$AP.
Look 3: New York Fashion Week Men's
To say that A$AP is a fan of Raf Simons would be an understatement. The designer has built a cult following that includes Kanye West and Luka Sabbat, as well as the self-proclaimed Fashion Killa, who delivered some certified heat for Simon’s New York Fashion Week debut. In terms of high-fashion sportswear, you can’t get much hotter than a piece by Gosha Rubchinskiy, and Rocky’s navy tee and white kicks are fresh from the Russian label’s coveted Fila collab. Elsewhere, he adds a pop of colour with a statement jacket from his AWGE x Baartmans and Siegel line and some interesting print via a pair of checked Prada trousers. Well plaid.
