A$AP TyY is back in Paris, and with the help of some high-profile collaborations, he's ready to take over.
Last December, A$AP TyY- fresh off the success of his hit-single "Trump"- embarked on his first-ever European headlining tour. As he conquered Paris, then Amsterdam and London, it became obvious that it may be the first time, but would absolutely not be the last time TyY would step foot in Europe. Now, just 6 months later, after cementing his role as the ASAP Mob's most unpredictable performer, TyY has returned to the city that hosted his most memorable performance; Paris, France. This time, the reason for the trip is not a world tour, but rather a hard-hitting fashion collaboration in the midst of Paris Men's Fashion Week.
Milan Fashion House, Guntas, calls on A$AP TyY.
As recently reported by Indie Magazine, ASAP TyY will be teaming up with Milan-based fashion house, "Guntas." Critics have hailed the partnership as a perfect match. Zeynep Guntas, the Turkish designer behind the brand, has garnered fame through her politically-influenced designs inspired by the bloodshed she witnessed in her home-country. Guntas' political influences seem to be a perfect match for the openly political and uncensored TyY who recently garnered newfound fame with the release of his aforementioned single, Trump. In which he advertises his... displeasure... with the commander in chief. To prepare for what we might see on the runway, take a quick look at 3 exclusive photos of TyY and some of his collaboration pieces:
More than fashion: A week of performance & parties.
As the week ramps up, be on the lookout as TyY once again, takes Paris by storm. First, with a launch party at the exclusive club, Salò, on Wednesday night where a runway presentation of the highly-anticipated collaboration between Guntas, TyY, and special-guest NEKEDI, will take place from 8pm to 10pm, followed by an all-night party from 10pm to 5am. The party will include performances from A$AP TyY himself, as well as other special guests. When it comes to kicking off Paris Fashion Week, there is no place better. Check the official announcement here. Then, from Thursday to Sunday, head to 73 rue de Turenne and check in at the A$AP TyY Bikeshop, serving as a major centerpiece to the "HOODLAB" showcase.
It comes as no surprise to anyone familiar with the ASAP Mob that, even during Paris Fashion Week, one of the most high-profile events in the world, TyY has plans to take over not just the music scene, but the fashion scene as well. With top designers, promoters, and management in his corner, it seems that the Mob's most electrifying member is well on his way to dominating the cultural conversation not just in Paris, but all over the world.
To keep up with TyY's Fashion Week escapades, follow along on Twitter and Instagram.
- And don't forget about the upcoming release of the highly-anticipated music video for his irreverent banger, "TRUMP."
Always Strive And Prosper.
