Here at MTV Style, we spend all day every day blabbing about our own extreeeeemely strong fashion opinions, but sometimes (sometimes) we’ll actually listen to the opinions of others. Fashion egghead A$AP Rocky is EXACTLY the kind of “other” we’re willing to bend an ear for. He’s well-versed in all corners of the industry from high fashion to streetwear. He’s an excellent stylist and not afraid to take risks. He video chats with Alexander Wang and takes his Fashion Week experience to the next level, looking at home not just in the front row but on the catwalk, too. (Not to mention that the dude’s devastating smile could probably charm us into just about anything.) The “Wild For The Night” MC sat down for Canadian late night talk show George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight to weigh in on some fashion dos and don’ts.
Wearing a crisp white backwards snapback and a star-spangled BAPE crewneck, Rocky runs through a list full of style choices he co-signs and looks he thinks people should leave behind. He encourages viewers to take risks and be unique, but he also warns against custom-name NFL jerseys, PGA tour golfer steez, the Canadian tuxedo, and over-accessorizing (which, BTW, prompts an adorable Mr. T impression by Pretty Flacko). It’s a sillier side of Rocky than we’ve seen in a minute (not since he hopped behind the counter and played cashier for us at Black Scale a while back, anyway), and we’re very much into it. See the video for yourself below and let us know what you think!
