Photographed by Craig McDean (Kristen Stewart, Kate Moss) A$AP shows off his fascinating signature style. A$AP is interviewed by fashion designer Alexander McQueen for the spread.
Excerpts from the interview:
Growing up in New York:
“I came up in a world that was just crazy — and it was hectic and kind of radical at the same time. For me, growing up in Harlem and then migrating down to SoHo and the lower East Side and chillin’ down there and making that my stomping ground . . . That was a big thing, because I’m from Harlem, and downtown is more artsy and also more open-minded.”
Problems in the hip-hop community:
“For instance, one big issue in hip-hop is the gay thing. It’s 2013, and it’s a shame that, to this day, that topic still gets people all excited. It’s crazy. And it makes me upset that this topic even matters when it comes to hip-hop, because it makes it seem like everybody in hip-hop is small-minded or stupid — and that’s not the case.”
“We’ve got people like Jay-Z. We’ve got people like Kanye. We’ve got people like me. We’re all prime examples of people who don’t think like that. I treat everybody equal, and so I want to be sure that my listeners and my followers do the same if they’re gonna represent me. And if I’m gonna represent them, then I also want to do it in a good way.”

We’re about to enter Britain’s annual “too warm for an overcoat, too cold for a blazer” season. Create an extra (not to mention bang on-trend) layer by slipping your denim jacket underneath your tailoring.
The affordable denim jacket
“I love a classic washed out denim jacket, it looks great layered up with a techy parka or worn on its own with a simple round neck white T-shirt. Easy, effortless, hot.

Victor Cruz has hired a stylist. In the world of sports, that means you’re stepping up your game, which is an obvious move for the Super Bowl winner. The New York Giant’s wide receiver did a stylish spread for Dujour magazine’s April issue. Wearing suits for away games and business casual for home games, he’s gained an affinity for looking good when off the field.
The athlete opens up about his family, humble beginnings and growing interest in fashion.
On the influence of fashion on sports: “I think the players are paying attention to that, and it’s cool to see. It was only a matter of time before the two worlds met… I don’t know about anybody else, but I like dressing up and wearing suits.”
On his style his style when growing up in Paterson, NJ: “We wore throwback jerseys all the time with oversized hats, North Face coats and Nike Air Force Ones. The Nikes were big for us, because it defined what kind of person you were, how cool you were. When I was younger, I couldn’t afford all those sneakers. My mother was like ‘I’m not paying $150 for Jordans. It’s not happening!’”
The topic of racism in the fashion industry has reared it’s ugly head one to many times over the past several months. There was that ELLE France gaffe, Dolce & Gabbana’s mammy-esque designs and the recent blackface scandal with Numéro magazine. These instances and more remind us that the post-racial society that some like to think we live in is simply a hope and not reality.
One of fashion’s top models, Chanel Iman, is supporting that notion with a candid omission about her experience dealing with racism within the fashion industry.
