Last night’s Met Gala may have honored Comme des Garçons designer Rei Kawakubo but, true to form, A$AP Rocky stuck by his boy Raf Simons in a steezy full-denim outfit from the designer's Calvin Klein debut.
OUTFIT OF THE DAY
A$AP ROCKY DOES MET GALA DENIM
By Kasia Hastings, May 3, 2017
With the great and the good of the celebrity set gathering in New York for the Met Gala 2017, you’d be forgiven for forecasting a strong, but perhaps underwhelming, array of stylish tailoring. And while there were plenty of Oscar-worthy suits and interesting interpretations of the Comme des Garçons "The Art of the In-Between" theme, A$AP Rocky (and Ashton Sanders) came clad in some more casual, Western-inspired cuts from Simons’ FW17 CK collection.
Rocky’s black denim shacket, jeans and white top play by the red carpet rules in terms of color, but it’s pretty freeform from there. With no suit in sight, he works in some nice layering (a turtleneck under an open collar), good details (a tucked-in overshirt) and some en vogue 2000s styling (unrolled, bunched-up jeans). In a crowd of over-the-top outfits, it’s a fresh, low-key take on occasionwear from our favorite Fashion Killa.
