Over the weekend, Odd Future's Tyler, The Creator made his runway debut, showcasing his Golf Wang collection at Made Fashion Week in Los Angeles. Using one of the most unique and creative stages to set the tone, we can see why the rapper was so excited to bring his vision to life.
From the dirt bikes, to the bedroom-styled set decorated with Kelis posters and larger-than-life book bags, to the skate ramp that wound around bright craft flowers, the noticeable thought that Tyler put into his collection didn't stop at the stage; models walked the runway-turned-road wearing fur, terry cloth robes, and 5-panel hats splattered in polka-dot prints, making Tyler's attention to detail very evident.
Later in the evening, Tyler announced his new show company, Golf Le Fleur, with a bit of help from Kanye West who handed Tyler a mysterious letter that was later read aloud by a fan. The lucky attendees were then notified that, by the end of the year, all in the audience would get a free pair: "You get a shoe! You get a shoe!," Tyler announced, mocking Oprah.
So, if you were considering making a new investment for your closet, this collection would be one for you; not to mention that for those of us who enjoy a his-and-hers combo, Tyler created unisex items with us in mind, as well.
Though Golf Wang will give brands like Billionaire Boys Club some stiff competition, it's no run-of-the mill streetwear line. Each piece boasts its own individuality, but the collection's timeless silhouettes make it one that can be worn for years to come.
To all our fashion mavens, be sure to get your hands on some of these items when it hits stores!
