In case you missed it, A$AP Rocky has firmly made himself known as a babushka boy. Since he first reinterpreted the matronly headscarf—most notably, perhaps, with the floral silk Gucci scarf he wore to a LACMA gala in Los Angeles last year—Rocky has continued to break out the unexpected accessory on a regular basis. Just last night, even, Rocky went to a Fenty after-party in the midst of Paris Fashion Week wearing a sleek, black patent leather Marine Serre raincoat which he paired with, yes, a red babushka-cum-baseball cap.
For Rocky’s latest appearance at the Loewe runway show earlier today, though, the rapper swapped out his go-to accessory for something a little different. With a caned bag slung low on his hip and his pants cinched at the ankles, Rocky walked into the Loewe show with an opalescent, almost Victorian looking choker firmly set around his neck. It’s a bold styling choice, especially when paired with a men’s blazer as Rocky did, but it’s certainly fetching on him. When he first debuted the babushka headscarf last year, the response was divided, but since then the look has been sported by the likes of Jaden Smith and Marc Jacobs—could Rocky be patient zero for a menswear accessory trend once again with the choker? For that, we’ll have to wait and see—but don’t be surprised if he writes a song called “Choker Boi” now, too.
