A$AP Rocky x GUESS Original’s
It was announced late last year that fashion killa A$AP Rocky would be collaborating with GUESS Original’s for a capsule collection, making him their first collaborator. The release date has been announced and from 16th February, you’ll be able to get your hands on Rocky’s first fashion venture.
Inspired by the glory urban days of the 80s and 90s, Rocky has taken a whole new meaning to throwback Thursday (#tbt). ‘It’s what I grew up with, I’m a 90s kid and GUESS was a huge part of that time’, he explains to High Snobiety. He goes on to mention the corner-store scene in Menace II Society and quizzing what kind of shirt he was wearing. GUESS no doubt.
Rocky rummaged through the GUESS archives for inspiration for his first collection, which is available for both men and women. Making his mark on the brand, the signature GUESS logo features his traditional money symbol. The collection is staked with a variety of different colours striped t-shirts that come as a turtleneck or a short and long sleeved. Ticking off all the boxes of a 90s wardrobe there are also distressed denim, denim jackets and of course overalls.
For the campaign images and sticking to the throwback theme, Kimi Selfridge shot it in a Polaroid style. Friends like Ian Connor and model Luke Sabbat appear in the campaign, the cool kids on the block.
The collection is available for pre-sale from 30th January and the main release is 16th February on Guess.com. Price ranges from $34 USD up to $228.
