Who: A$AP Rocky.

The outfit he’s wearing: It's all Gucci.

Location: Milan, Italy

Why it works: A tightly cut tweed blazer and baggy jeans? It sounds like a positively abominable combination, yet Rocky somehow makes it work. Go off, King!

Editor’s Notes: There are some combinations in this life that just make sense: wings and hot sauce, pineapple and pizza, and, undoubtedly, A$AP Rocky and Gucci. At the Milanese label's SS20 show — more on which you can read here — the rapper-slash-style phenom was seen front row, sans babushka scarf, wearing a tweed blazer and a rather bulbous pair of jeans. The perfect look for when you have to teach a college class at 11 but hang with the skatepark homies at 12.

Rocky took in the show alongside fellow Gucci acolyte and musician Lou Doillon, watching it through a pair of razor-sharp sunglasses that could have been worn by an Italian architect or politician back in the '70s. As for what they're chewing on? I have no idea, but it makes me want to go out to the store and stock up on cocktail sticks right away.
