ASAP Rocky Appears in New Dior Homme Ad Campaign
Kanye may have put the masses on to Dior Homme (not Dior, homie) on his song "Devil in a New Dress," but it's A$AP Rocky draped in red as the face of the fashion line's new ad campaign. Pretty Flacko's rep in the fashion world may, at this point, run parallel with his rep in hip-hop, as the Harlemite continues to stack spreads with the most prestigious of houses.
"I really like (A$AP Rocky’s) personal style and taste," Dior Homme creative director Kris Van Assche told WWD. "He’s a real fashion lover. He feels like fashion really influences his own work, and he has strong opinions on that."
Back in late January, Rocky was photographed alongside fashion icon and supermodel Naomi Campbell for Pop Magazine, the juxtaposition suggesting that the rapper had arrived as a member of fashion's top tier and inner circle. In August of 2014 meanwhile, he and then girlfriend Channel Iman posed for a spread in Vogue's premiere September issue.
Earlier this week, Rocky's collaborative collection with menswear brand J.W. Anderson was released, with pieces ranging from $275 to $1,300. Sartorial minded fans with a little less cash to blow can check out Rocky's collection with Guess Originals. Up top and below are Rocky's photos for Dior Homme's Autumn/Winter 16 campaign, shot by Willy Vanderperre. Others featured in the campaign include Kids director Larry Clark, French actor Rod Paradot and model Dylan Roques.
If Rocky wasn't a fashion killa before, then these chic new ads have surely solidified the fact. Peep some of the rapper's most stylish looks in the gallery below.
