You can view the YouTube playlist above, which will continue to add new clips featuring more celebrities (even Yung Lean is a part of this).

A$AP Rocky continues to make great strides in the fashion world — his latest collaboration seeing him fronting Dior Homme’s Fall/Winter 2016 campaign alongside Kids director Larry Clark, model Dylan Roques and French actor Rod Paradot. Rocky spoke on the new move with WWD:
I mean, it’s dope when you can mix it. It’s all about taking two worlds like streetwear and high-end and kind of mashing them together. But when it comes to Dior, it’s just prestige and elegance in my opinion. It’s almost like Coco Chanel was for the lady.
Dior Homme creative director Kris Van Assche also chimed in, stating that he really liked Rocky’s “personal style and taste”.
Check out some additional pics below…the ads will appear in Men’s non-no and Australian and South Korean editions of GQ magazine. ALSO: Rocky has a new capsule collection with J.W. Anderson…check that out here.
Last night saw Tyler, The Creator debuting his first ever fashion show for his Golf Wang clothing line, which went down as part of MADE LA. As expected, the show was one of the most unique events ever witnessed — not only were the attendees treated to a new song by Tyler (which featured more lyrics in regards to his UK ban), they also left with a pair of their own Golf Wang shoes (a precursor to Tyler’s forthcoming footwear line this Fall).

After first getting a teaser via his Snapchat, Novelist has revealed a dope new collaboration with L.A. brand Joyrich, creating a new capsule collection (complete with ‘mmm yeah’ embroidered into the clothing). The Grime star also spoke with i-D on how the collaboration came together, as well as the meaning behind it:
The thing that really sparked this creativity was my love of the way Joyrich use colours. I would go to my friend Ella Dror’s office and look at the Joyrich clothes and she’d give me the ones I liked, and it got to the point where I just said to her, “I need to work with these people.”
My story is based on being a hard worker and remaining true to UK style, so the clothing looks like work wear but has that trademark sports wear look with it as well. When you look at the collection it gives the feel of being ready to get something done. That could be anything.
Check out some pics below. You can pick up Novelist and Joyrich’s new gear at EJDER.
Prior to the full unveiling of his Yeezy Season 2 collection, Kanye West liberates a visual editorial piece that puts the spotlight on the most notable threads from the release. The pics (some of which are NSFW) were photographers by Jackie Nickerson and features appearances from Ian Connor, Amina Blue and Kanye himself.
Those interested in getting their hands on the zine have two options: wait until 6th June to purchase from YEEZYSUPPLY online, or head to one of the retailers listed below. Oh yea, it will knock you back a cool $80 USD (£55). Why does everything have to be so expensive?

Pharrell continues to make strides in the fashion world, and here’s his latest — the all-around talent and visionary has linked up with past collaborator Chanel for its Métiers d’art 2015/2016 collection.

Complex has a crep-centric series with sees them trainer-shopping with various artists, and their latest episode saw them hanging out with Action Bronson. During the segment, Bronson didn’t mince words about Michael Jordan or his brand.
Kendrick Lamar has teamed up with director Colin Tilley (who did a lot, if not all, of Kendrick’s more recent To Pimp A Butterfly videos) to create a new advert for his new Classic Leather collaboration with Reebok. He also explained the fairly melancholy clip below:
From the very heart of me, belief becomes action and no distractions will take my eyes off the prize. Greatness is my goal, but there is failure on the way. Full of insecurity, self hate, and doubt. But what I can’t control can’t confine me. And what I can’t do can’t stop me. This is how I express myself, not how I follow others expectations but how I stay true.
Hypebeast recently caught up with Olivier Rousteing, who spoke on being creative director of Balmain, diversity in fashion and more. He also revealed a strong admiration for Kanye West and his Yeezy fashion line:
I love Yeezy. I wear Yeezy. You know what I love about him? It’s that he can create so much tension and power at the same time. It’s insane! I went to his show in Madison Square Garden and I was just like, “Wow! This is fashion.” In one live moment, there were 20,000 surrounding his clothes, while launching a new album, The Life of Pablo, dressing everybody in Yeezy. This is the dream of every designer. You might not do the same clothes as he does, but just imagine having all of these people and TVs around your show. You have like Anna Wintour, and at the same time you have Lil’ Kim, you have 50 Cent and you have Kim K. You sit back and you’re just like, “you are a f***ing god because you made this happen.”
