Hip-hop artist A$AP Rocky is definitely into fashion. And he wants to share some of the basics with you.
A$AP Rocky is no “Fashion Killa.” In fact, he’s more of a walking, talking, wearing fashion encyclopedia…but he’s too modest to cop to it.
“Nah, I’m not. I wouldn’t toot my own horn like that. I just know what I know,” the rapper told us. “Fashion is almost like a religion, for me at least…I get it, I identify with it. It’s just one of those things that I’m into. I can’t help that I know it. It’s like subconscious.”
We sat down with the rap genius at Soho House Toronto. Decked out in a crisp, double-breasted Saint Laurent Paris blazer, fresh off the runway, mind you, A$AP was friendly, warm and down to earth. Although we were still feeling the effects of a few too many Belvedere vodka-somethings at the party we co-hosted with him the night before, we were eager to get some one-on-one time and get to know the real man behind the flashy grillz and braids.

We met A$AP at the Soho House in Toronto, speech slow and heads aching from a few too many Belvedere vodka-somethings at the A$AP x Cov jam the night before. But the hangover was no match for A$AP’s savoir-faire—he totally schooled us with his encyclopedic fashion knowledge (not-so-subtle hint: maybe there’s a closet feature coming up A$AP in our iCal?). We sat down with him in a Kindergarten, show-and-tell-like circle and learned the A to Z’s on fashion – literally.

Our latest issue is out now and we’re stoked to have some of our favorite artists in the book. We’ve featured A$AP members on the blog before and just a few weeks ago Rocky and Ferg stopped by to spend the day at our headquarters. The guys were literally just back from shooting the “Wild for the Night” video and only had a two-day break before starting the Diamonds World Tour with Rihanna. It’s great to see a focused group of hard-working young dudes getting their due. Witnessing the rise and continued success of the A$AP organization has been amazing. The above pictures are just a few outtakes from our shoot with them, check out the full story on page 96 of this month’s NYLON Guys.
