“I just hate stuff that’s not fresh,” Travi$ Scott tells Mr Porter, the menswear e-tailer who’s snapped a slew of sexy men (including Miguel, Jared Leto, and A$AP Rocky) in the FRESHEST of designer duds. “Fresh is about maintaining an ill aesthetic at all times.” True to his word, Scott kicked back at the shoot looking nothing less than that, wearing only black suede Balmain biker trousers and a few gold chains.

But as the first of Porter’s pictures prove, the 21-year-old Kanye West protege had no problem transforming from shirtless and tat-strapped to a casually dapper rapper, dressed in a crisp, white Christophe Lemaire button-up, black sweatpants by Neil Barrett, and slip-on sneakers by Maison Martin Margiela. (We assume that the diamond-lined grill is his own, and are not-so-secretly stoked that there’s no mention of Porter’s interviewer getting to swap spit like we did last year at the VMAs. *brushes shoulders off*)

In another shot from the all black-and-white editorial, Travi$ moves his bling from his mouth to his back in a satin Saint Laurent by Hedi Slimane bomber jacket embellished with jeweled details that depict lips, fangs, and heart-shaped blood drops. So scary, yet so chic. With the bomber serving as the focal piece of the outfit (and quite possibly some very luxurious nightmares), the rest of the look sticks to mixed neutrals: Scott wears white jeans by AMI along with a white T-shirt and black strappy mandals by Ann Demeulemeester.

With his first studio album close to completion (he released his debut mixtape, Owl Pharaoh, last May), Scott’s about to be a very busy dude. He’s also got a tour lined up with Juicy J, but declined to dish much about what his onstage wardrobe will look like, only saying that it will be filled with “rock star pieces”—one of which will include a bulletproof fishing vest, because… um, I mean, I guess it’s good to always be prepared?
