Gosha Rubchinskiy, much like Raf Simons, has a fascination with youth culture, specifically that of his native Russia. Gosha has presented a narrative built upon the rebellious attitudes of the stifled Russian youth. Certain styling quirks are staples of Gosha, and we’ve seen Kanye indulge in these.
Sweatpants Tucked Into Socks
This one is screamingly Gosha – just look above! Gosha publicity shots, and runway shows, are littered with this styling staple. Kanye also rocked this fashion style recently, particularly during his frequent airport trips – even going so far as to do it in Gosha Rubchinskiy sweatpants!
Kanye has taken a strong liking to Vans recently. He has worn them in the past, but this current decision to go all in on them, specifically name dropping them alongside his own kicks in the song No More Parties in LA, seems curious. Gosha Rubchinskiy has collaborated on numerous iterations of Vans, and are a staple footwear choice for the brand in promotional and runway endeavors.
Sweatshirt & Pants Combo
This choice is something Kanye has been doing frequently: a sweatshirt, sweatpants, paired with a jacket of some variety, with the already mentioned “socks tucked into the sweatpants.” This look certainly appears on Kanye, but with his slight hip-hop twist. So what do you think: did Kanye find inspiration in the styling of Gosha Rubchinskiy?
