Gucci’s recent, and viral, “Life of a Rockstar” campaign sees A$AP Rocky, Tyler, the Creator, and Iggy Pop get together in a mid-century Los Angeles home while they sport pieces from the label’s new and supremely tailored collection. Shot by Gummo and Kids director Harmony Korine, the campaign is a retro-fuelled, bright-color blowout characterized by velveteen and checked materials alongside golden-era LA cuts.

The tailoring is not the only focus here, though. And we’re not talking about a feature from Iggy's real-life Cockatoo Biggy Pop, either. We’re talking about the big-time accessory game on display in the vid. From manbags to textured socks, headwear, and the unmissable chunky rings, the three stars are decked out in masterfully curated extra details.

The category that really caught our collective eye, though, was the huge eyewear, with sunglasses popping up that you simply couldn't miss. We’re ready to don a similarly loud pair for fall and winter, and we've picked out several options that fit the bill below.
