Marine Serre x AWGE by Aybuke Barkcin


Dear Shaded Viewers,

Marine Serre, the futurist designer behind the crescent moon print has teamed up with A$AP Rocky’s creative collective AWGE on a capsule collection titled “Regenerated”.

We first got a taste of the collection when A$AP Rocky was spotted wearing a jacket co-designed by Marine Serre backstage at Paris Fashion Week. As the full scope of the collaboration was revealed afterwards, both Marine Serre’s futuristic aesthetic that makes us question the consequences of industrialisation and A$AP Rocky’s authentic style was brought into the spotlight.

“Collaborations come and go, this was more of a partnership where Marine and I were able to celebrate the things we admire about one another’s creativity,” the hiphop artist revealed about the collection.

As the title explains, up to 70% of the collection was made up of regenerated and repurposed materials, all sourced in Europe. The collection includes leather trousers, denim patchwork jackets, hooded dresses, turtlenecks, leggings all covered with the crescent moon print, as well as accessories like caps and durags.

In a conference call with Marine Serre, A$AP Rocky explained why he wanted to collaborate with Serre, “She has more of a, I would say, fashion-house approach to her brand, but with a streetwear aesthetic. She collided both worlds. I’m an advocate for that: mixing high-end streetwear and low-end clothing, so it spoke to me, naturally. I just loved her aesthetics.”
