A$AP Rocky is named Artistic Director at Pacsun.
A$AP Rocky and PacSun have just joined forces, and Rocky has made history in the process. The brand announces that the Testing rapper has been appointed the guest artistic director for the lifestyle apparel brand. He is the first person the brand has given such a title.
“This partnership is special to me because it’s a collaboration that combines my roots, A$AP Worldwide, and some of the most respected heritage brands that have roots in both the sportswear and lifestyle worlds,” Rocky says in a press release. “Together with PacSun, we will be releasing several limited-edition collections that are both nostalgic and forward at the same time.”
His first capsule collection will include “three styles of the Old Skool silhouette, consisting of black canvas, white leather, and silver reflective colorways and materials and focused on very particularly executed flame embroidery.”
This venture is just the latest way for Rocky to showcase his love of fashion, something he’s been doing since he first rose to prominence 10 years ago.
“Nobody bridges the gap between high fashion and streetwear like A$AP Rocky. We are proud to welcome him to the PacSun family and energized about making his ideas a reality that can be shared (and worn) by millions and lead a global style conversation.”
There is no word on when the first Rocky and PacSun collaboration will officially drop, but be on the lookout.
