“If fashion is your life and that’s what you like and that’s what you’re about, express yourself, wear what you want and nothing matters, nobody else opinions matter.”
ASAP Rocky, Rakim Mayers, child of Harlem, is not just a pretty-boy rapper; he is flamboyant than most, both with his rhythmic slow flow and flair for fashion. He’s got some approach. With his fresh gold grills and fractal braids, this fashion killer does not have a single bad combination.
The East Coast boy caused a serious uproar with his melodious ‘Purple Swag’ that turned into a blaring street anthem in New York City back in 2011, since then Lord Flacko has moved on over his beanies (and found love for babushkas) and broken up with many of his earlier sartorial fixations. His style-ology, over the years, has witnessed a major evolutionary shift, and only grown in confidence. His fashion sensibilities are as chameleonic as fashion itself. Today, etching his name on every fashion lover’s lips, he is the face-du-jour for luxury brands, Gucci to Dior Homme. Adventurous colours, clashing prints, unorthodox cuts, clean silhouettes, from maximalism to minimalism to everything in between, ASAP Rocky has got a penchant for everything, which he spits back in his own “reckless swag”.
If you’ve ever heard even a modicum of rap, it’s mostly about blowing cash and owning truckloads of designer, while others just brag, ASAP Rocky flexes his genius, what may seem like ‘anything put together’, takes the MC utmost precision. His style is enviably fresh. Have a look:
