Tyler, The Creator's clothing line Golf Wang is making its runway debut. According to Vogue, the rapper was asked to present a collection as a part of MADE's new fashion event launching in Los Angeles this summer.
“I just figured, Why not? Why not do something different?” he told Vogue. “Not everybody in the upper fashion world is wearing all-black Saint Laurent pieces and is super pretentious. I want to show them a different world.”
Tyler's Golf Wang collections have mostly been pieces like tees, polos, shorts, and jackets that feature bright color palettes and tongue-in-cheek graphics, which have included everything from its signature donut logo to Donald Trump with a Hitler-style mustache. As far as what we can expect from the upcoming collection, Tyler said he will design whatever he wants to wear.
“I just make whatever clothes I want to wear for the next five months and then run that. I don’t really put deep, intricate thought into it—it’s more like a feeling,” he said to Vogue.
Jeremy Scott is set to headline the two-day event, taking the runway the night before Tyler to showcase a new Moschino collection. This season the designer chose to present his men’s Spring 2017 and women’s Resort 2017 collection in L.A. instead of London. “It’s always fun to change it up and do something new and unexpected!” he told Vogue.
Despite it being MADE's first fashion event in L.A., Scott has been a staple at MADE Fashion Week in New York, where he presents a show for his namesake brand each season. Like the NYC event, MADE LA will host a lineup of runway shows, presentations, and events that bring together the worlds of fashion, music, and art. The MADE LA event will take place on June 10 and 11.
