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 has teamed up with Virgin Mega to create an all new Trap Lord collection highlighting Syracuse. The aptly titled #TrapLordTakeover collection flips Ferg’s iconic Trap Lord logo and meshes it with Syracuse’s signature orange, blue and white colors, detailed with camo and cross graphics. The release is limited and will only be available for purchase via the Virgin Mega app for your phone. You can download the app now on the iTunes store. Stay tuned as the #TrapLordTakeover collection goes on sale December 5th at 5pm EST.
Sure, we could (and do) talk endlessly about the clothes we love, but for our column, Line Item, we ask some of our favorite designers to tell us what they think about the best pieces from their newest collections. For a new seven piece collaboration with Young & Reckless, A$AP Ferg has drawn up a range of t-shirts, jerseys, and bucket hats in white, purple, black and gold inspired by infamous alias Trap Lord available at PacSun. Today, we got the former fashion major to talk about his inspirations, style and influences.
A$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.
