Young Thug Features in Calvin Klein
17 Jul 2016
Young Thug has certainly turned a few heads so far in his career whether it be his music or his fashion sense. This time, the rapper got the attention of the public from the Fall 2016 campaign for Calvin Klein as a feature. The rapper also performed at the Calvin Klein showcase at the SXSW earlier this year. The Atlanta rapper helped promote the brand by being photographed in a black pinstripe dress with pants in the womenswear collection. The advertisement slogan reads ‘I disobey in #mycalvins,’ across the picture.
Young Thug is known to push the boundaries from frequently dressing in women’s clothing to referring to his fellow rappers as ‘lovers’. In a promotional video for CK that was released last week, he explains that he thinks a gangsta is a gangsta whether they wear a dress or baggy pants. ‘I feel like there’s no such thing as gender,’ he says. Other representatives for the fall 2016 campaign of Calvin Klein include, rapper Frank Ocean, as well as Kate Moss, Margot Robbie, Bella Hadid and David Blaine.
For its spring campaign, the fashion brand enlisted Kendrick Lamar, Joey Bada$$ and Fetty Wap.
