A$AP Ferg Links Up with AGOLDE for a 2017 Fall Unisex Collection

The rapper talks balancing masculinity and femininity in our exclusive interview.

While most of us are still enjoying the summer heat, A$AP Ferg and AGOLDE are already thinking fall with a brand new collaboration. The artist and the premium denim label have teamed up to design a unisex capsule collection, which draws heavy inspiration from Ferg’s lifestyle as well as his own denim archive.

Designed with a genderless approach, the collaborative range allows the wearer to style the pieces however they wish to. Apart from the androgynous element, the 12-piece collection also sees repurposed vintage pieces with custom artwork as well as a bunch of utility references. In particular, all jean styles come in a range of three different fits: a men’s skinny, a women’s classic straight-leg and a unisex cut. Bottoms aside, the launch also includes a lineup of outerwear pieces, a T-shirt and a cozy tracksuit.

Retailing between $58 USD and $350 USD, the collection is now exclusively available at The Webster. You can also shop the collaboration at AGOLDE’s web store beginning July 27.

We’ve recently caught up with the rapper-slash-designer to talk about his latest project. Learn more by reading our conversation below:

Why did you choose to design a unisex collection?
I chose to design a unisex collection because girls always come up to me and tell me I should do something for them. It’s true, I started to feel like I was leaving women out of the excitement and I wanted to bless them with some dope clothing as well.

With creating unisex apparel, how do you balance masculinity and femininity?
Nowadays, women love to wear men’s garments anyway. The lines are really blurred now and people are becoming way more expressive with what they wear. It’s already happening in society, so it’s really not too much balancing I need to do because if I had a nice shirt on and my girl wants to wear it, she will. That’s what I love about this generation.

What are some things you have to keep in mind when designing clothes that are worn by both men and women?
I want to always stay true to my vision and want everything to flow as organically as possible. I am just more conscious of what a girl and a guy both like in garments and try to merge those thoughts into one piece . It’s like the new type of music some artist are making with the trap drum on an R&B-type song that Migos, Travis Scott or Young Thug are doing. The track has the hard trap beats for the guys and melodic singing on it for the females. It’s a perfect mixture.

What are your favorite pieces from the collection?
Some of my favorite pieces would have to be the heavy army jackets. Also, we’ve revamped the Ferg jean to give it a more vintage look and feel. The denim jackets will be a unisex favorite because of the short cut on the body and long sleeves. All the clothing has a vintage, straight-out-of-a-scene from Stranger Things feel along with modern touches with the cuts, zippers and buttons.
