This month’s Olivia Kim-curated Pop-In shop – Pop-In@Nordstrom: Faded – focuses on unique, easygoing style for men and women, combining broken-in fabrics and precision craft. Here we zero in on one of our featured brands, AGOLDE.
You know them from rap music, but the whole A$AP crew is into fashion: A$AP Rocky came into the game rapping about Rick Owens and Raf Simons; now he’s in Dior ads, and A$AP Rocky and A$AP Bari are making waves with their VLONE line.
But A$AP Ferg has the coolest fashion pedigree, with his dad’s store Ferg Apparel holding down Harlem in the ’80s and ’90s with luxurious gear and custom sweatsuits, outfitting everyone from neighborhood elders to Puff Daddy.
Ferg is always up to something, fashionwise, and recently with AGOLDE made a line of jeans modeled on his own destroyed pants, his favorite pair of jeans that he wore in his name-making video for the song “Work.”
We chatted with him about his dad’s store, custom camouflage leather and wearing two pairs of socks at the same time.
