Tyga looks to Kanye West for fashion tips

Published 30/08/2016


Tyga prefers to wear comfortable clothes rather than on-trend pieces.

Tyga has praised Kanye West for educating him on fashion.

The 26-year-old rapper may have style credentials of his own, including a new capsule collection with Marcelo Burlon and appearing in Alexander Wang’s fall 16 campaign, but he’s always open to learning more about the business. He’s become close to fellow music star Kanye since he started dating Kylie Jenner, the half-sister of Kanye’s wife Kim Kardashian, and now jumps at the chance to go behind the scenes of his friend’s own label, Yeezy.

“I think whenever you're around Kanye, you gotta (sic) take notes,” Tyga told “The advice is taking notes, because everything he does and everything he says is very detailed and very up front. He's always one hundred per cent in what he says. Even going to his warehouse and modelling for a lot of his new season stuff taught me about my silhouette, how the clothes fit - I've definitely learned a lot being around him.”

Clothes and fashion have always been a passion for Tyga, as he believes fashion goes “hand-in-hand” with music. But to be designing pieces himself is a dream come true and he is now fully immersed in channelling his personal streetwear aesthetic into items all men can wear.

“I like comfortable clothes,” he noted. “Most men in the world wear T-shirts every day and jeans. I wanted to always put my street style to the high fashion looks and just make it comfortable and make it look stylish.”

As for which brands he likes to wear Tyga listed the likes of Balmain, Saint Laurent and Off-White. He isn’t a big fan of high-fashion other than the few he listed, preferring baggy, alternative clothing rather than following the trends.
