This month, Young Thug and Frank Ocean became the faces of this year’s #mycalvins campaign, for Calvin Klein’s Fall 2016 global adverts. Last year, Kendrick Lamar, Justin Bieber, FKA Twigs and Fetty Wap were recruited.
CK released two short ads of the musicians, in which Thugger discusses his belief in gender fluidity. “There’s no such thing as gender,” he says. “You could be a gangster in a dress, you could be a gangster in baggy pants.”
Following the videos, editorials have begun to surface from the campaign. Thugger does what he does best and sways expectations, appearing as a gangster in both a dress and
baggy pants. The poster of the rapper suited in CK’s new womenswear line was posted today on their Instagram. In true ambiguous Thugger style, he’s pictured standing on a rock by the ocean, rocking a black pin-stripe two piece accessorised with a large pendant necklace. His full womenswear look is completed with a pair of black boots, while the tagline reads “I disobey in #mycalvins”, referencing Thug’s bending of gender norms.
