Let’s face it: beating the cold can be detrimental to one’s swag. It’s not easy looking cool when you have to bundle up in a ginormous coat with a scarf wrapped around your wind-beaten face, all while fighting the sniffles, shivering violently, and trying to stop your teeth from chattering. Leave it to Young Money star Drake to come up with a solution. The Headlines rapper has ventured into the world of fashion, and no, it’s not what you’re thinking—he did not design Cosby sweaters (BUMMER!). Get ready to feast your eyes on his latest creation: a Chilliwack jacket in collaboration with Canada Goose and Drake’s crew, October’s Very Own (OVO). When we first heard Drake was creating the magnificent outerwear, we were all, “DUH, of course,” since he hails from Canada, where the weather makes New York City’s gusting winds feel like a summer breeze. But we had no idea how stylish the goose down coat would actually be.
The jacket has luxury down to a science. The zippers and snaps are 24K gold, the exterior is comprised of a sleek black buffalo leather material, the filling is white duck down, and the snorkel hood boasts Arctic fox fur trim. Oh, and peep the silk lining with OVO’s owl trademark. SWAG. Of course, anything this fashion-forward has to be limited-edition (obvsi, it’s not cool if everyone can have it). And BTDubs, it retails for a cool $5,000. You did know looking this luxurious comes at a steep price, right? If you, too, live by Drake’s mantra: “Money over everything, money on my mind,” and thereby, can afford such a jacket, you can cop it here while quantities last (aka go NOW!). Don’t you already feel like a part of the YMCMB fam? Now, let’s pray a collection of ugly Cosby sweaters is up next.
