Check out exclusive footage from A$AP Ferg’s stop in Atlanta w/ Peach Castle & WISHATL.
A$AP Ferg is not your average hip-hop artist, in fact, he may prefer you remove the hip-hop designation and not box him into a particular category of art. As we discussed in our exclusive interview with the Harlemite back in September, just a few months before the premiere of his Art Basel event alongside adidas, Ferg grew up enthralled in all realms of art, from drawing and painting to fashion and film. Now with a firm reputation as one of the rap game’s most versatile mind, his creative vision is beginning to grab the attention of some of hip-hop’s brightest, including Future. The two recently linked up for a heater, “New Level,” with Ferg taking over the director roles, alongside longtime collaborator Shomi Patwary, for a video treatment.

Rapper and i-D cover star A$AP Rocky has been revealed as the first high-profile collaborator with GUESS on their new series of capsule collections, GUESS Originals, which pairs the brand with the hottest talent in fashion and entertainment, and i-D are able to reveal exclusive images by photographer Kimi Selfridge from the upcoming campaign.
Rocky worked with Paul Marciano, GUESS founder and Chief Creative Officer, to create a collection of striped T-shirts, retro logo print tees and crop tops, slim cut jeans and boxy denim jackets that nod to the GUESS obsessions of 90s hip hop stars, translating them to a 2016 tip.
“I wanted to give kids today knowledge of what GUESS meant to hip hop and the urban community in the 90s and late 80s. From the drug dealer on the corner with the T-shirt, the rapper Nas saying ‘When I get dressed, it’s nothing less than GUESS’ and Tupac in the movie Juice,” Rocky said at the downtown NY launch last night, as noted by Pret-a-reporter.
Referencing Rocky’s crew, retro style logo T-shirts and polonecks have injected their dollar sign styling into the label to read, “GUE$$ Jeans USA”. It’s not pretty, it’s gorgeous.
Check out exclusive polaroids of the collection below.
