JW Anderson has teamed up with US artist A$AP Rocky to create an exclusive menswear capsule collection.
A$AP Rocky first displayed his interest in the brand when seen wearing emblematic JW Anderson on tour and in his music video “Jukebox Joints”. He quickly and naturally became a brand ambassador and presented himself on these occasions wearing Autumn Winter 2015 menswear. Rocky and Anderson have come together to create a youthful collection of modern men’s casualwear – a result of common interest in each other’s creativity.
“It’s always exciting to collaborate with creatives who wear JW Anderson. Rocky is an influential modern artist who has a strong point of view on fashion.” – Jonathan Anderson
The collection features the zip ring pull and teddy faux fur, both iconic features seen in the Autumn Winter 2015 menswear collection of which Rocky was keen for the brand to implement in a new way.
“Jonathan is a designer that sticks to his own instincts and JW Anderson has a really unique aesthetic. AWGE is built from the same principles, which is why this collaboration is a perfect fit together." – A$AP Rocky
Products include; two knitted beanies, two knitted tracksuit tops with matching bottoms and two teddy fur jackets. Made from fine merino wool and high grade faux teddy fur the collection not only represents a modern attitude but is also luxurious. In addition, a custom logo (JWA x AWGE), found on all products has been made to mark the collaboration.
