Dressed in a sleek black ensemble, 23-year-old A$AP Rocky gets serious about style for his July feature in GQ magazine. While covering everything from the ladies to fashion designers brining him “weed edibles,” Rocky tells GQ that his fashion is a mere reflection of his music.
“With clothes, I like mixing what different designers do until it becomes a personal expression of how I’m feeling that day,” the Harlem rapped explained.
He continued speaking about the relationships that his passion for fashion has established, mentioning, “Jeremy Scott is my boy. We’ll do a shoot and then do lunch. Every time I see him, he has gifts for me. He knows I like weed, so he’ll bring edibles. I’ve also been wearing a lot of Rick Owens. It’s like hard-core jailhouse streetwear with a high-end gothic feel.”’
Rocky also explained how his love for fashion has evolved over time, “When I was a kid, I was a little horndog. First it was candy and girls. Then it was girls and bikes and scooters,” he said, “Then it was girls, rap, and clothes. Now it’s girls, directing videos, my house, and fashion. And girls, girls, girls.”
