Listening to A$AP Rocky and Frank Ocean While Shopping for Raf Simons, A.P.C. and Gucci

Rappers joining forces with fashion brands: a tale as old as time? Well, it’s definitely a going concern. The fusion between the two is in full effect at the moment.

Perhaps you’ve heard: A$AP Rocky’s new song “RAF” repeatedly references Raf Simons, the legendary Belgian designer. Simons is named in each verse by Rocky and his guest stars Quavo, Lil Uzi Vert and Frank Ocean. You can listen to the song on episode 006 of blonded RADIO, Ocean’s show on Apple Music / beats 1—or enjoy one of the YouTube rips available at the moment. Check out our adidas by Raf Simons collection below.

And since we’re on the topic of Frank Ocean …

… his “Chanel” hasn’t left our listening rotation since it came out in March. Check out the song on Spotify. Will we listen to it all summer? We think so! From the artwork for the single, shop Ocean’s look below. And while we don’t actually know whether Ocean likes to wear Chanel, we certainly know his cowriter Pharrell Williams has been totally rocking a Gabrielle bag—which we carry.
