A$AP Mob in ’GQ.’
With its lively history and growing creative network, Harlem is hot right now. For the July issue, GQ decided to highlight the neighborhood using locals who may know a thing or two about it—enter A$AP Mob and Cam’ron.
The A$AP Mob, who were a natural fit for the feature not only because they’ve curated a book on the topic but also because they’ve added to Harlem’s fashion-forward legacy, brought their A-game (heh) to the shoot. Posted up at the Apollo, Rocky, Ferg, and the rest of their crew make suits styled with T-shirts seem like an easy look to pull off. Rocky wears a suit by Balenciaga with a Billionaire Boys Club hoodie, and checkered Vans, meanwhile Ferg reps Boss and pairs his suit with a Bellerose T-shirt, Borsalino hat, and jewelry by David Yurman. Rocky also broke down his style for GQ, saying, “Harlem has always been known for its swagger and pizzazz. I get my high-end look downtown, but my street style comes from uptown.” It’s definitely working for you, dude—keep that combo going.
Cam’ron in ’GQ.’
Cam’ron—aka the founder of Dipset—also went with a suit for the shoot. He opted for one by Brunello Cucinelli, while Juju—his better half/Instagram co-star—stunned in a bandage dress by Hervé Léger. We’ll always miss the pink fur when it’s not around, but this double-breasted suit isn’t half bad either (JK, it’s great).
You can check out the full spread on GQ’s website—maybe you’ll be inspired to dress very nicely for the next few days? I’m definitely leaning that way, TBH.
