The new front row

GQ (Australia) - - GQ STYLE -

Hip-hop has long had an affin­ity with fash­ion, but to­day, rap­pers aren’t just spit­ting about Gucci and Dior Men – they’re ei­ther sit­ting front row or walk­ing the run­ways. Virgil Abloh had Kid Cudi, Play­boi Carti, A$AP Nast and mu­si­cian Dev Hynes strut down his Louis Vuit­ton run­way, while Kanye watched on from the f-row. Artists Nas, A$AP Ferg and Syd packed out the Valentino show, while Wizkid and Tinie Tem­pah walked for Dolce & Gab­bana. Hav­ing given the in­dus­try free promo for decades in the way of catchy beats, the fash­ion world is fi­nally giv­ing rap­pers the ku­dos they de­serve.
