Harlem rapper ASAP Rocky’s love for Black Scale gear has been well-documented across various videos and photoshoots, so it comes as no surprise that the San Francisco-based label has gifted the 23-year-old star with his own signature collection. Complex caught up with Black Scale’s MEGA and Alfred to learn more. So the capsule collection was inspired by A$AP Rocky. Tell us more how he influenced the aesthetic of the collection. Alfred: Rocky has been a fan of Black Scale since before we actually met. It just so happened that I was working the sales floor the day he decided to come in and purchase items for his video shoot for “Purple Swag.” He had a great energy and was a genuinely nice guy. The video dropped and the relationship continued to grow organically. The response was so overwhelming that it made sense to do a collabo. The design influences were taken from what the A$AP crew liked about Black Scale. I tried to integrate all the aesthetics that drew the crew to the brand, always keeping in mind that they should look good in it when they wear it. The collection of sweats, tees and caps with be available through BLVCK SCVLE in March. Check Complex for the full interview.
Last night Swizz Beatz was in the studio and had a special guest with him, designer Christian Louboutin. He showed off some exclusive kicks as well.
Beats By Dre, recently collaborated with fashion house, Oscar De La Renta on a limited edition line. As soon as PETA noticed that the headset had fox fur they sent Dre a letter. Dear Dre, I hope this message finds you well. As you may know, PETA is the largest animal rights organization in the world, with more than 3 million members and supporters dedicated to the protection of animals. You have many fans here. We’re writing today after reading about your new fox-fur headphones design with Oscar de la Renta. We wanted to get in touch to urge you to keep fur and exotic-animal skins out of your Beats by Dre designs. Foxes, minks, rabbits, and other animals—including cats and dogs—are bludgeoned, genitally electrocuted, strangled with wire nooses, drowned, and even skinned alive for their pelts. Most animals killed for their fur are slaughtered in China, where there are no penalties for those who abuse animals on fur farms.
