The Drip is Highsnobiety’s latest series, taking a deep-dive look at celebrities and their jawnz. Every other day, we highlight a notable figure from our world and run the rule over whether their outfit is a hit or miss. Do you agree or disagree with our appraisal? Let us know below.
Who: A$AP Rocky
Location: WOO HAH! 2018
Why it works: A$AP Rocky is no stranger to blending streetwear with high fashion; an alchemy that’s more difficult than it initially seems. This time around, the Harlem spitter opts to keep it comfy while on stage in a pair of affordable Thrasher sweatpants. But rather than going all-around chill with something like a graphic tee up top, he spices the ’fit up with a luxe Prada vest over-top a shirt from his pal A$AP Illz and Disco Inferno. To round things out, Rocky goes with his trusty Vans Old Skool’s — which you’ve seen him rock many times before — with some white crew socks, a favorite staple of Tyler, the Creator.
Editor’s Notes: Virtually any time A$AP Rocky makes a public appearance, his outfit is a point of interest. As previously mentioned, the A$AP Mob frontman often mixes streetwear and high-fashion pieces, which was exactly the case at his recent WOO HAH! performance.
Understandably opting for comfort while on stage, the Thrasher sweats are a prime choice, albeit paired with a Prada vest that not only matures the ’fit but also ups the value. Also, we’ve been seeing rappers and various other celebs (what up, Pusha T?) rocking Prada tops rather frequently as of late. Lastly, you can never go wrong with a fresh pair of Old Skools, either — a great choice to complete the look.
