Yes, you read that headline correctly. We want to raid Tyler, The Creator’s closet. There are plenty of PYT starlets in this world whose armoires we’d gladly plunder: the frilly frocks, excellent hosiery, jewelry the size of our faces! But what you wouldn’t expect is that we here at MTV Style would also loot and pillage the living daylights out of this Odd Future frontman’s wardrobe, and we don’t care who knows it! In fact, we WANT the world to know, which is why we’re posting it all over the interwebz. Tyler may have joined forces with Terry Richardson months ago for this shoot, but a few extra shots didn’t make it to Terry’s Diary (or our eyeballs) until this weekend. And these GEMS the bespectacled photographer to the stars had been hiding from us are sending us into a tailspin of skate-fash lust for every punchy, ironic, obscene article of clothing that Tyler owns.
The Golf Wang pop-up store experiment seems to have yielded positive results for the Odd Future crew, as store manager Lucas Vercetti told HighSnobiety that the dudes aim to expand Golf Wang into its own clothing empire, separate from Odd Future tour merch. Here, Tyler sports Golf Wang staple “Shark Cat” as a discreet white tee emblem beneath his leopard brimmed Supreme hat. We’d do some further customization to this tee, maybe turn it into a slashed Lisbeth Salander-style tank and wear it with a punchy moto jacket or some neon cutoffs.
We loveloveLOVE this yellow all-over printed running dog tee by Billionaire Boys Club for its summer-beckoning brightness and quirky cartoon print. We can see it with a pair of leather skinnies (any color will do) and some sort of knobbly oversized shawl collar cardigan. The best part? The shirt is reversible—TWICE the outfits! And of course, we’d also swipe that “World Famous” Supreme snapback because duh. So good.
This Tyrannosaurus Rex tee is almost too major for words. It has the same bizarro museum gift shop appeal as a howling wolf tee plus mind-bending Jurassic Park awesomeness. We might tuck it into a floaty pleated jewel tone skirt with some sort of sequined/metallic topper situation. But we’re also really feeling Tyler’s own black-on-black interpretation with the addition of this Golf Wang embroidered starter cap.
We may have broken our last deck (and a few bones) years ago in a failed attempt at looking cool whilst bailing (*sigh* foolish youth), but we’ll always have a place in our hearts for skate culture and the pages of pretty nosegrinds from skate magazines that we’d tack to our bedroom walls next to Teen Vogue spreads. This Thrasher hoodie tugs right at those nostalgic heartstrings while also being conveniently on-trend in neon pink. Also, Tyler’s wearing, like, three gold teeth. What now, Lana??
