A$AP Ferg, Redline Partner on Bike and Apparel Collection

There is nothing quite like riding your bike through Harlem in the summertime — just ask A$ AP Ferg: The A$ AP Mob member partnered with bike brand Redline to launch a special RL 275 bicycle in yellow and an accompanying capsule collection.
The Redline x Ferg collection, which launches on e-commerce and content platform NTWRK on June 11 and at Stadium Goods in New York City on June 14, consists of the special-edition alloy frame bike that Ferg debuted at Pharrell Williams’ “Something in the Water” festival in April, as well as a yellow hoodie with Redline and Ferg branding and long- and short-sleeve T-shirts featuring similar branding and the line “Ride With the Mob” from the rapper’s song “Plain Jane.”
“It’s literally a walk through memory lane,” Ferg told WWD. “It’s allowing me to give my fans a memory that’s important to me and how I felt during those childhood years.”
Ferg has an affinity for bikes and had a few Redline styles growing up. He even had dreams of designing his own. “I’ve always expressed to Pharrell how much I love bikes and how I wanted to create my own bike for the last five to seven [years],” he explained. “He introduced

Why Under Armour Collaborated With A$AP Rocky on a Skate Shoe

More than a year after rumors emerged, the Under Armour and A$ AP Rocky collaboration is finally available to purchase.
Officially named the AWGE x Under Armour SRLo, the sneaker will be sold today at an experiential pop-up in Harlem. The space, titled AWOL, which was created in partnership with AWGE, A$ AP Rocky’s creative agency, and Matte, a creative agency and production company, features four floors.
The basement is dedicated to retail, the first floor is a skate park, the second floor is an AWGE interactive space, and the third floor will host a rave. The shop exemplifies what influenced Rocky when developing the shoe with Dave Mayhew, a former pro skater who helped design the original Osiris D3 20 years ago with Brian Reid. The pop-up will be open to the public from 4 p.m. to midnight.
The skate category is a new world for Under Armour, but they lent Rocky complete creative freedom and tied the shoe back to performance by integrating its Hovr cushioning technology to make it light and comfortable. The shoe retails for $ 250, one of Under Armour’s most expensive price points, and comes in black along with a black-and-white colorway.

Janelle Monáe, A$AP Rocky and Banksy Take to Walltime

VIRTUAL STREET STYLE: One of the Bowery’s busier corners, Houston Street, has a continually changing attraction thanks to the free app Walltime.
Banksy, Janelle Monáe and A$ AP Rocky are among the talent who have had their videos beamed on the wall there. Users can tune in remotely to watch it via live webcams and listen to synched soundtracks on iPhones. But Walltime can also be used to share Vimeo or YouTube videos on walls anywhere in the world. Live since January, the Walltime app is a new way to bring virtual content into a public space. Cofounder and chief executive officer Alex S. Vandoros said, “It adds what we believe is a new dimension to social media and audio visual content. Anybody can see anything on their iPhone. But there’s not really a platform out there that puts together virtual cloud-based content and actual walls — or other outdoor assets.”
Monáe’s new music video, “Pynk,” was teased last week downtown with a “sort of hush-hush release.” The app’s dual function allows people to listen to high-quality audio in synch with the projection. Not long ago while having dinner nearby at Cherche Midi, Atlantic Records executives happened to see A$ AP Rocky screening a video

A$AP Rocky Opens New York-Style Bodega at Selfridges Selling Krispy Kremes and Slogan T-shirts

HIS FAVORITE THINGS: A$ AP Rocky is no stranger to fashion, having appeared in campaigns for brands ranging from Dior to Zalando and designing capsule collections for Guess. For his latest project, he’s moved into retail with a pop-up at Selfridges that’s been designed to resemble a New York-style bodega.
The musician, a loyal customer of the Oxford Street store, wanted to re-create the bodega experience in his native New York — still one of his favorite cities — so he put together a patchwork of his favorite things, ranging from doughnuts to hoodies.
“Rocky was born and raised in New York, where you’ll find bodegas on every block,” said Matthew Henson, fashion director of the musician’s creative collective, AWGE. “We felt like this was an experience that was only happening in New York City. I mean, there’s small one-stop shops elsewhere, but there’s nothing like a full bodega experience. So we took some of his favorite items and things he’s always wanted to make, and opened up the shop in London, which is one of his favorite cities.”

A$AP Ferg, Agolde Team on Unisex Collection

For Agolde’s second collaboration with hip-hop artist A$ AP Ferg, the two went unisex and looked beyond denim.
“It’s a true collaboration,” said Agolde creative director Karen Phelps. “In the modern-day approach to how people dress, it’s an eclectic, relevant collection which I feel not only resonates with the brand, but also resonates with the consumer.”
The 12-piece collection for fall includes jeans, graphic T-shirts, a tracksuit and outerwear ranging from military-inspired styles to sherpa jackets. The collection retails from $ 58 to $ 350 and launches exclusively at The Webster Miami and The Webster’s online shop on Thursday.
All of the pieces are made in Los Angeles and involved Ferg visiting the company’s design studio to talk backgrounds and influences with Phelps.
“He was a great partner from an aesthetic point of view and he’s interested in design,” Phelps said. “I’ve worked on a lot of collaborations, so for me it was unique in that Ferg has training in design, so there was definitely creative input, which I think is important.”
Ferg’s father operated a clothing boutique in Harlem while Ferg was growing up. The artist later went on to art school where he studied fashion design and launched the line Devoni Clothing in 2005. He later

Under Armour, A$AP Rocky Said to Be Collaborating on Sneakers

Under Armour is preparing to step up its game in footwear.
According to reports, the Baltimore-based activewear giant is putting the final touches on a sneaker collection with popular rapper A$ AP Rocky.
An Under Armour spokeswoman wouldn’t tip her hand, saying only: “We are always talking to those with a passion to change the game, from athletes to creators to entrepreneurs.”
Under Armour has had struggles breaking into the competitive footwear market. Its most popular shoe has been a sneaker with Golden State Warriors’ Steph Curry, but sales have moderated in recent months. Associating with the popular hip-hop artist would give the category a boost.
In March, A$ AP Rocky teamed with Guess for the second time on a capsule collection under the Guess Originals x A$ AP Rocky name that was based on the apparel brand’s archival pieces from the Eighties. He also has his own collection, Traplord, and has been featured in Dior Homme ads.
The rapper, whose given name is Rakim Mayers, has more than 858,000 followers on Instagram and the Twitter account for his A$ AP Mob moniker has nearly 450,000 followers.
A$ AP Rocky, who has been linked to such high-profile designers as Palm Angels’ Francesco Ragazzi, Dior Homme’s Kris Van Assche and Gucci’s Alessandro

Kendall Jenner and Hailey Baldwin Do Some Last-minute Shopping with A$AP Rocky Before the Met Gala

Kendall Jenner and Hailey Baldwin were spotted shopping in casual clothes ahead of fashion prom: the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual Met Gala, set for Monday in New York City.

Jenner, 21, opted for high waisted boyfriend jeans, enormous hoop earrings and a white cropped knit for the Sunday shopping trip while Baldwin, 20, wore a black and yellow varsity jacket and skinny black pants.

Rapper A$ AP Rocky was also with Jenner inside a store. The pair’s rumored romance began last June, and they were most recently spotted at Coachella together, where they flirted during his set at Jeremy Scott’s party.

The young models have graced the event’s hot red carpet before, each rocking stunning looks at the 2016 Manus x Machina red carpet for the gala. Jenner framed her supermodel bod in an Atelier Versace gown, then kept the rest simple with white Versace heels, a sleek ponytail and Lorraine Schwartz diamonds. Baldwin picked a fully sequin black-and-silver long-sleeve Tommy Hilfger gown with vertical stripes, plus Boudani earrings, Noudar rings, strappy heels and a high pony.

Jenner’s debut at the black tie fête was back in 2014, and she went for a full-on princess moment in a custom blush mermaid-style Topshop gown and 82 carats of Chopard diamonds around her neck.

A$AP Bari on the Future of Vlone

“I’m not into stores,” said A$ AP Bari, a member of the A$ AP Mob who works with A$ AP Rocky and Edison Chen on Vlone, a highly sought-after streetwear line. “I don’t shop at them.”
Bari, who was in New York on the night of April 6 to celebrate the opening of the Tupac by Vlone pop-up on Ludlow Street, is into experiences — a buzzword that’s often thrown around by retailers but rarely realized. He currently has no interest in selling his pieces at stores, but he’s open to working with them.
“I would do collaborations with different stores, but for them to sell my clothes? No.”
Over the past year, Vlone has gained a following for its graphic product and pop-up retail concepts that are held in various locations — Miami for Art Basel, Austin, Texas, for South by Southwest and Harlem, because that’s where Bari and Rocky grew up. And Vlone has collaborated with brands including Off-White, No Vacancy, Fragment and Nike; a pair of Nike x Vlone Air Force Ones sold for $ 94,800 on eBay.
“I want to do things for the right reasons,” said Bari. “And most of my collaborations come out of friendships.”
According to Bari, he didn’t initially revere Tupac in the same

A$AP Ferg, Trey Songz Show Love for Public School

This particular fashion week has found many publicists trying their hand at bodyguarding, acting as shouting barricades between their clients and the press. As you can imagine, this presents an obstacle for journalists and a spectacle for anyone watching. But at Public School’s show Sunday morning, celebrities seemed to be unaccompanied by their protectors.
Was it the sleet? Who knows. In any case, celebs were free to roam around Milk Gallery as they pleased.
“I love what [Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne] stand for,” said A$ AP Ferg, shades on and hoodie up, from the front row. “I love that they’re a bunch of New York kids. They started off at Sean John. They mix these Asian influences with all-American. It’s very innovative clothing.”
Ferg shared that he was actually wearing a “girl’s coat” — innovative, indeed. “It could be unisex if you wanted it to be,” he said. “You would never know.”
The rapper said he attended Alexander Wang’s show the night before, adding how “dope” it was that it took place in Harlem.
Trey Songz sat nearby, also hiding behind sunglasses and a hoodie. “I got on this nice fly outfit right here,” he said, showing off his embroidered joggers. “I wanna see more like this, especially in this weather
