A$AP Ferg Reveals His New Denim Collaboration With L.A. Brand AGOLDE

by @Djordje

DSC_8295_b45lmc

A$AP Ferg is not like other rappers trying make their way in the fashion industry. Despite a successful music career, Ferg actually started off designing clothes. He graduated from art school; launched his own label, Devoni, which Chris Brown and Swizz Beatz are fans of; and has collaborated with brands like Young & Reckless and PacSun. Now, he’s entering the very tough denim industry with a collaboration with L.A. brand AGOLDE—the same project he’s been teasing on Instagram this past week.

The Trap Lord personally worked at AGOLDE’s factory during the production of the collection, learning the ins and outs of the denim industry while simultaneously contributing creatively to the range. The collection is inspired by his favorite pair of jeans, which he’s worn on tour, at fashion shows, and while riding BMX bikes. “I basically want to give the world a piece of me,” he says. The collection also includes T-shirts, a hoodie, and denim jackets—but it’s the jeans, he says, that he’s especially proud of.

We recently caught up with Ferg to talk to get the exclusive on his new denim collaboration, being inspired by Ralph Lauren, plus how the “Dope Walk” video with Cara Delevingne came about.

Ferg’s collaboration with AGOLDE launches Spring 2016.

VILLA x A$AP Ferg: Emerald Essentials

by @Djordje

J2_Villa2

When fashion titans Timberland and VILLA collaborate, the streets take notice. With their past three collaborations already cemented as cult classics, the pair teamed up yet again to release their most eye-catching pair to date: the VILLA x Timberland Emerald 6” Boot. Originally debuted in February, the Emerald boot sold out instantly in all of VILLA’s 100+ locations.

One of the first people to embrace the Emerald Timberland was Harlem’s sartorial sultan, A$AP Ferg. Completely enamored by their killer kelly hue, Ferg was instantly inspired to redesign his signature Trap Lord gear to pair up nicely with Timberland and VILLA’s creation. After Ferg gave his emerald-tinted blessings, VILLA was able to find a few more pairs of the Emerald 6” boot, right in time for St. Patrick’s Day.

If you missed out on the initial release, then this could be your last chance to cop one of the most coveted kicks of the year. Throw in the jewels that A$AP Ferg has dropped, and there’s no better to way to shine for the Emerald Isle. This extremely limited re-release and exclusive Trap Lord gear will only be available through the Virgin Mega app on 3/12 Noon EST. Download the Virgin Mega app (iOS/Android) to get in line to buy this product.

The Emerald Essentials Collection consists of the VILLA x Timberland Emerald 6” Boot ($190), the Trap Lord x VILLA Snapback ($35), and the Trap Lord x VILLA Long Sleeve Tee ($45).

A$AP Ferg Partners with Young & Reckless for Exclusive Collection

by @Djordje

A$AP Ferg is a member of the A$AP Mob hip-hop collective, A$AP Worldwide. The collection highlights elements of Ferg’s signature style; like camouflage prints, A$AP Worldwide globes, jerseys, a bucket hat, and Trap Lord statement t-shirts. Young & Reckless has merged the design influence of A$AP Ferg’s personal life with the mass appeal of the brand.

Partnering with A$AP Ferg was a perfect fit on many levels for Young & Reckless. As a Harlem native, Ferg experienced many challenges in his pursuit of becoming an entertainer. When speaking on his debut album Trap Lord, Ferg said: “I hope people take the good and the bad from what I’ve got to say, I’ve seen so much shit in my life. There were times I ducked bullets at a basketball game, and then I went to a fashion show. I’ve experienced depression. I’ve experienced triumph. I’ve experienced hate. I’ve experienced love. I learned how to be independent. I made it out of the hood, and now I want go to the top.” Ferg’s story of overcoming obstacles in his own way is the message behind all things Young & Reckless. These are the stories that resonate with our fans and inspire them to follow their unique path.
