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: Rita Ora
The outfit she’s wearing: Oakley Radar EV Pitch lenses, neon green tee (no ID), customized Louis Vuitton x Supreme denim skirt and jacket, black side bag (no ID), Nike x Skepta Air Max 97/BW SK kicks.
Location: Settimo, Veneto, Italy
Why it works: Not everyone can blend streetwear and rave aesthetics with a double-denim power suit, but somehow Ora has pulled it off. Perhaps it’s down to her new fire ‘do that such a bold look works on her, or maybe it’s because she’s paired major statement pieces with subtle accessories like white tube socks and kicks to avoid going too extra. Either way, she’s nailed it.
Editor’s notes: In this look, Ora’s rocking her take on the Louis Vuitton x Supreme collab, mixing a customized skirt and jacket combo with rave-inspired garms. Sure, the look is a little pricer than your standard double-denim affair, but if you happen to have $3k+ knocking around in your account, feel free to pick up some LV x Supreme denim threads from resellers and hack them into a skirt, too.
Assuming blending in wasn’t on the agenda — which is probably a given as she was in town to perform — Ora’s choice of tee helps her stand out in such a loud lobby. The color is on point; she’s taken on this summer’s frozen yellow trend, and next year’s predicted neon mint obsession, and turned the contrast up a few notches. And while we’re not 100 percent sure which brand she’s wearing, MISBHV offers a similar option — plus it’s on sale.
Ora’s choice of eyewear tops her ‘fit off with a statement, and cements the rave aesthetic she’s championing here. It looks like Oakley has a thing for these particular shaded lenses at the moment, seeing as the pair she has selected look extremely similar to those the brand just dropped in collaboration with Palace. What’s more, the shape is a nice deviation from the small glasses trend everyone else is jumping on right now.
