I’m a big A$AP Rocky fan and admire him for both his music and his style. I like it when an artist’s music and fashion go hand in hand, and Rocky’s unique sound and look set him aside from a lot of other rappers at the moment.
What appeals to me most is how he effortlessly mixes streetwear and high fashion and isn’t afraid of making a statement. Just some of the designers and brands he’s a fan of include Raf Simmons, Rick Owens, Alexander Wang (pictured above), Y-3, Givinchi, Versace, Louis Vuitton, Blvck Scvle, and Jeremy Scott (pictured below).
I’ve watched a lot of interviews where he talks about fashion and it’s refreshing to see someone so passionate about fashion and in tune with their sense of style.
He’s also both a fan of and good friends with one of my favourite designers Jeremy Scott, with the pair already making the cover of Feb/March 12 Complex Magazine.

Jeremy on his friendship with Rocky: “I love hearing the stories about what my work means—not only to him, but to the kids he came up with. His friends, all of Harlem. For me that’s my ultimate goal: to touch people’s lives. The real people on the street” (source)
