Last week, A$AP Rocky took the stage in front of a sold out crowd at New York’s Best Buy Theater to celebrate Peter Rosenberg’s birthday with Peterpalooza IV. The night also featured performances from A$AP Ferg, Vic Mensa, Bodega BAMZ, Gunplay, Remy Banks & the World’s Fair crew. Check out the video recap above and click here for some more photos from the night.

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.

Bypassing typical menswear-vernacular in pursuit of a fresher form is Astrid Andersen, who’s been crafting a dope, new dialect for lads since 2010. For SS16 she’s partnered with creative-king A$AP Ferg to create a track and accompanying video to properly notch her season, transcending the habitual monotony of fashion collections and transforming it into a multifaceted bomb of creativity.
Her sources of inspiration are organically comprehensive. Her executions on the old-age notion of luxuriousness: even more thorough – finishing off with a feminine warp and a slick insertion of modernity.
Red Bull Studios’ Catwalk Studio provided the kit to help the pair materialise their exacted concept. (Bull’s expertise in maturing fashion-concepts shine through previous projects including ‘Fred Butler x Charli XCX’ and ‘Alex Mattsson x Zebra Katz’.)
Rapper, designer – an almighty creative: A$AP is more than just a rapper – making this collab truly symbiotic. He inherited his artistic penchant from his father; attended art school; launched his own label; and could tell you more about the explosive Lagerfeld-Yves Saint Laurent spat than the average fashion-journalist. Speaking the same language is a concrete bond that Ferg and Astrid share.

If you’ve been paying any attention to the local tour circuit, you would know that the hood pope, AKA the trap lord, AKA Fergenstein, AKA A$AP Ferg was recently in town. We know the A$AP Mob member is just as influential in the style world as he is in the music, so when we linked up with him in Sydney we made a beeline direct to Subtype Store. Once we got there we did a little shopping, chilled out, and introduced him to our friend Careaux for a quick chat about life on the road.
