Rising Harlem rapper from the A$AP Mob collective, A$AP TyY announces a collaboration and pop-up event with streetwear brand Global Warning. Click HERE to view the collection. On the collection, A$AP TyY said, “Creating the ‘A$AP Lifestyle’ collection is something I had wanted to do for a long time. To be able to release this collection during Paris Fashion Week Just made sense timing-wise. I partnered up with Global Warning and my brother Yam’s foundation ‘A$AP Foundation’ to bring this collection to life.” Jesse Koch, the co-founder of Global Warning, added, “The collaboration between our brand and A$AP TyY came naturally from our longtime working relationship with TyY. I met TyY in 2016, and he has been a huge supporter of our vision ever since.”
The limited-edition collection features six unique pieces personally designed by TyY and the Global Warning team. The designs are heavily influenced by TyY’s street and bike fashion, and the embodiment of the A$AP Lifestyle. A percentage of each item sold will benefit the A$AP Foundation, whose mission is dedicated to providing young people with accessible and realistic education about substance use and abuse.
The A$AP Foundation shared, “The Always Strive and Prosper Foundation is extremely thankful for A$AP TyY‘s consistent dedication to the culture, unending encouragement of the youth, and his consistent commitment to helping us to continue to spread drug safety awareness and community care.” For the first time since the pandemic, TyY will return to Paris during Men’s Fashion Week to host the day-long pop-up shop with Global Warning where fans have the first chance to purchase the limited-edition collection items. The pop-up will take place on June 25 at 216 Rue Saint-Martin in Le Marais from 1-6 pm.
