A$AP Rocky And Alexander Wang Chat For ‘Interview’ Magazine

We’ve known for a minute that A$AP Rocky and Alexander Wang are buds. They share similar tastes in fashion and music and bridge the two effortlessly every time they link up—whether that’s by Rocky wearing Wang’s threads for a magazine shoot, the two collaborating on a campaign video, or (our favorite) setting up a li’l video chat date. For their latest issue, Interview magazine didn’t just swaddle the Harlem MC in high fashion for photographs (as he’s proven to be so. good. at. doing.). Instead, they put him on the phone with Wang, sat back, and transcribed.

Rocky oscillates between shirtlessness and being fully-clothed throughout the entire shoot—laden with a gigantic leather Margiela poncho and Y-3 sneakers one minute and little more than a Siki Im necklace the next—but it’s his talk with Wang that’s our biggest attraction to this feature. The conversation capitalizes on all our music x fashion voyeurism with its candidness as the two catch up on the kick-off of Rihanna’s Diamonds World Tour, Alexander’s new gig at Balenciaga, and Rocky’s unorthodox attitude toward collaborations. There’s so much mutual respect and adoration and a great deal of insight—about positivity, authenticity, and each of their dreams—that can only come from a chat between two IRL friends.
