A$AP Rocky has remained relatively quiet on the music front — besides releasing his new video for ‘Multiply’ last month — but for good reason. Looks like the rapper has been keeping himself busy behind the scenes. The always-stylish Harlem, N.Y. native will reportedly be the face of a new Salvatore Ferragamo campaign.
According to Complex, the Harlem native is featured in an ad campaign titled ‘A Man’s Story,’ which is part of Ferragamo’s spring/summer 2015 collection. The images are inspired by individuals known for “making their own rules,” a vibe portrayed by the brand.
If you’re not familiar with Salvatore Ferragamo, the Italian fashion house was created by the late shoe designer, who stylized many Hollywood celebrities during the 1920's. The company has since evolved in its 100 years of existence to now make luxury footwear and accessories for both men and women.
A$AP Rocky is, arguably, one of the most stylish rappers in the game, having introduced Jeremy Scott and Raf Simons to the world of hip-hop.
On Rocky’s latest single ‘Multiply,’ he proclaims that he’s a fashionable killa and takes shots at popular clothing lines Been Trill and HBA.
“I’m the motherf—ing lord of this fashion s— / Don’t I deserve just to brag a bit / Set the blueprint, f— your two cent / No. 1 stunner, ask Stunna if I’m accurate,” he raps, adding, “My motherf—ing swag is immaculate / Plus, I got enough style to mack your bitch.”
