Self-appointed fashion killa, A$AP Rocky has been a front row fixture at global fashion weeks for quite some time. He’s also bagged high-profile collaborations with J.W. Anderson and Guess, fronted Dior Homme’s latest campaigns, as well as being busy at work running his own brand, VLONE.
Last week, Rocky emerged for another fashion week fix in New York, and Highsnobiety spotted him on en route to Raf Simons’ inaugural Calvin Klein FW17 show. Raf Simons isn’t just an industry darling, he’s one of the few designers that Rocky obsessively stans for. A$AP recently teased an ode to the Belgian aesthete in a new song, simply entitled “Please Don’t Touch My Raf,” so we’re hardly surprised to see him out to support Simons.
What He’s Wearing: Balenciaga puffer jacket, Balenciaga waist bag, Calvin Klein zip-up, silver ring and a pair of loud, red Prada pants.
If you feel inspired by the rapper’s winter armor, we’ve tracked some affordable alternatives that you can cop right now.
The North Face Himalayan Parka
This jacket might be on the expensive side, but it boasts high-fill power goose down and a durable water-repellent finish, making it a quality winter investment. Just like Demna Gvasalia’s off-the-shoulder puffers at Balenciaga, this inherently functional alternative can be easily styled to emulate Rocky’s city-slope vibe.
World Famous Sports Fleece Jacket
If you can’t afford to shell out on Calvin Klein right now, then World Famous Sport’s have a functional, cost-effective solution. It’s the perfect inner layer to fight off the cold and a surefire way to complement a big, bold look with another loud color in tow.
Chained + Able Old English Classic Ring
For those unafraid of rocking jewelry, this silver-tone zinc ring is a classic piece that’s completely inexpensive. It’s a subtle way to elevate a look and its agreeable price means you won’t feel bad when you inevitably lose it.
Nike Air Force 1 High ’07
The ubiquitous Air Force 1 High ’07 in sleek monochrome offers some serious symmetry to an otherwise bulky silhouette. Volume on volume.
EASTPAK Waist Bag
No roadman uniform would be complete without a bum bag. A$AP Rocky already knows it’s the perfect way to store all those stray essentials. For those that can’t splash out on a Balenciaga version, Eastpak’s alternative in the right shade of red is a solid alternative.
