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.
What do you make of Rocky’s latest all Gucci look?
