A$AP Rocky 'obsessed' with turtlenecks

A$AP Rocky is "obsessed" with turtlenecks.

The 'Wild for the Night' hitmaker has teamed up with J.W.Anderson for a collection titled 'JWA X A$AP Rocky and AWGE' after falling in love with his designs.

He said: "I was obsessed with his collection with all the mock necks and turtlenecks and all the square zippers. And obviously I really loved the fur that I wore from his other collections. So I really wanted to make a mixture of those two.

"So we've got two faux fur jackets, hats, two track jackets, and track pants in a knitted material - all original colour ways and original silhouettes. I'm thinking of them for performing for certain."

And the 27-year-old rapper says the "admiration" between the pair built up to a point where they decided they just had to collaborate together.

He added to Vogue.com: "We met through friends. And the admiration just built up to where it just got to that point.

"You know when you have creative people just sitting around and like reluctant to work just for the sake of being cliché or predictable? Some people just wanna be friends. But we got to a point where we were, okay, let's just put something out - let's collaborate."

Meanwhile, A$AP Rocky - real name Rakim Mayers - previously admitted he has a "genuine" respect for Jonathan.

He said previously: "I felt like a fan since I've started working with him - even before, obviously, because I used to go to Opening Ceremony.

"I thought it was pretty amazing that he gave us so much free space just to do what we want ... He was like, 'Yo man, go ahead and have fun.' With him it's genuine and the respect and admiration is mutual."
