It’s an accepted fact that A$AP Rocky is among the most (if not the most) fashionable men in hip-hop. His personal aesthetic is proof enough, but lately A$AP has embedded himself further and further into the fashion industry, most recently with the unveiling of his collection with acclaimed designer J.W.Anderson. But lest we forget, the man’s a model too, as he has just been announced as one of the faces for Dior’s FW16 campaign.
Rocky is one of four creatives highlighted for Dior’s latest campaign, the others being film director Larry Clark of Kids fame, actor Rod Paradot and model Dylan Roques. The rapper rocks several looks from the upcoming collection, the most striking being a scarlet trench coat and a pair of Dior’s signature eyewear. While some may find him to be a curious fit for a brand as polished as Dior, the label put it best in the campaign by pointing out how Rocky “embodies the empowered masculinity of today’s urban dandy.”
