Vogue: Playboi Carti Is the Fashion World’s Latest Rapper Heartthrob

by @Djordje

Playboi Carti is late to his shoot at an apartment complex on 139th Street in Harlem. Here, the 21-year-old rapper has a gang of publicists waiting for him, while a crew of Grailed employees organizes piles of clothes for him to try on. Carti loves the site Grailed, which is like a virtual candy store for those with a taste for Raf Simons and Balmain. “I’ve always been a thrift store kid,” he later tells me. But these clothes are far from humble thrift store finds: A stylist has draped a $20,000 fur coat and a bevy of other haute goods over the couch. Eventually, he arrives, making a much-awaited entrance in a new pair of sneakers. Who can be angry at him? He’s a lanky, handsome heartthrob, who wears his skinny jeans with serious swagger. “I don’t like baggy clothes,” he says. “I’m a skinny dude, so I think [skinny jeans] look better on me.”

Carti first came onto the scene in 2015 with his song “Broke Boi,” a catchy hit that spoke about a tricked-out Jesus piece and poked fun at squares “in the mall buying ice.” It earned the attention of rappers like A$AP Rocky. Just a few days ago, he dropped his self-titled mixtape, which features singles like “Wokeuplikethis*” and “Magnolia,” and got as high as number four on the iTunes album charts. Carti’s fashion résumé is also impressive: He was in the Yeezy Season 5 show, performed this past season at VFiles with rapper Lil Uzi Vert, and made a cameo in one of Drake’s OVO lookbooks. During New York Fashion Week: Men’s, he headed over to Raf Simons’s first New York show with A$AP Rocky. “That felt like the first time [at a fashion show]. That one was the real deal; it felt amazing,” he says. “I met Raf, and I got the butterflies.”

(Video) A$AP Bari in Hong Kong for VLONE Pop-Up

by @Djordje

As A$AP Bari takes his VLONE project on a worldwide tour, which included pop-ups in New Orleans, Texas, Tokyo and more, we caught the action of how it unfolded in Hong Kong.

The highly-anticipated offerings such as the Nike Air Force 1, logo tees and sweaters brought out a huge number of people to line up for a chance to purchase a coveted piece. Held at Juice’s Sheung Wan location, Bari decided to completely transform the spot into what the concept of VLONE was really about. Bright orange walls, “EVERY LIVING CREATIVE DIES ALONE,” retro tech appliances and more helped illustrate and translate the vision.

A$AP Rocky, who is arguably fashion’s favorite hip-hop muse, is teaming with Guess on a second capsule collection for its Guess Originals x A$AP Rocky line called “Guess Club,” which hits stores such as Opening Ceremony and Black Market on March 10.
