Giorgio Armani and Future have posed together for an editorial in America’s GQ Style magazine.

Giorgio Armani and Future have bonded over their shared interests in fashion and music.

The Italian designer and U.S. rapper recently posed together alongside a $2.6 million Bugatti Chiron supercar in a shoot for America’s GQ Style, both rocking dark outfits for the piece.

The magazine decided to pair the two up following 82-year-old Armani’s recent partnership with Bugatti on a clothes line, and 32-year-old Future’s hit song, Bugatti, with Ace Wood and Rick Ross.

“I know how much he suffers to be where he is. He’s suffered just like I’ve suffered. So... we’re friends in a way,” Armani told the publication.

“He’s seen all kinds of artists over the years,” Future added. “He can basically just look at you and tell. Sometimes I get nervous about being accepted by people like him, because you never know. But some way my walk of life and his walk of life have connected.”

Hinting that more can come from this friendship, Future shared why he thinks the pair’s personalities work so well together.

“He’s the top designer in the world. I’m the top rapper in the world. Some hits are going to come from this experience for sure,” he smiled.

Future has already ventured into the fashion market, launching a streetwear collection which includes hoodies, t-shirts and accessories, with Neff Headwear late last year (15). And he’s previously spoken about how he’d like to develop the style side of his career further.

"Eventually yes, I would launch my own brand," he told The Hollywood Reporter. "But the time has to be right. Quality is everything to me and I perfect everything I do. So when the time is right, I would definitely consider launching a line or collaboration."
