Wear Less and Go Out More in Drake’s New Designs

An OVO look.

Drake has transitioned from rapping about women to designing for them, with an OVO capsule collection that drops at the end of this month. The all-black collection has a bit of a throwback feeling — not only are there tracksuits for days, but a cropped baby T makes an appearance, on a model who looks incredibly delighted to be photographed.

The branding is minimal by celebrity-clothing-line standards — think black-on-black embroidery on the back of a quilted bomber jacket, or a small logo on a lace-up sweatshirt.

For a true tribute, pair the sweatpants with hair tied and no makeup (or no-makeup makeup.)

The oversize baseball T-turned-minidress is a great look for enjoying a well-traveled, cosmopolitan lifestyle that weirdly threatens your rapper ex-boyfriend, who expected you to remain a static homebody while he traveled the world and became famous. Who knows, maybe he’ll even write a hit song about it.

Finally, the crucial thing this collection is missing is an assortment of snuggly sweaters, à la the “Hotline Bling” video. Next season?
