A$AP Rocky Curates a Blue-Chip Vintage Fashion Collection for Klarna
“Fashion trends come and go, but pieces stay with you forever.”
As part of his recent investment in Klarna, a fintech company that offers “buy now, pay later” plans for a variety of participating retailers, the rapper has curated a collection of vintage fashion available to purchase with the Swedish firm’s crediting system. Flaunting his eclectic and unexpected taste, Rocky selects grails and secondhand gems alike — there’s a ’90s-era Maison Margiela blazer ($1,157 USD from Farfetch) and a pair of hand-embroidered denim cutoffs ($25 USD from Vinted); a hand-cropped Chrome Hearts tank top ($380 USD from Depop) and a pair of linen Sonia Rykiel pants ($167 USD from Vestiaire Collective).
Rocky is no stranger to the art of strategic shopping. In an interview with HYPEBEAST, the artist and style icon says he prefers to invest in fashion with longevity. “You don’t want to keep having to do spring cleans. You just become a hoarder,” he said. “It’s only good to keep things that you think are pieces…Fashion trends come and go, but pieces stay with you forever.” As for the threads he’s currently coveting? “Every f*cking thing. Dude, I’m looking at bell bottoms! For real.”
