A$AP Rocky, who attended the Met Gala ceremony on September 13, one of the most important nights of the fashion world, with his lover Rihanna, attracted a lot of attention with the quilt he wore as a cloak.
Discovered at a secondhand store in California, the quilt inspired designer Eli Russell Linnetz, and thus the rapper’s outfit was born. According to the news of People, after it attracted attention on social media, the family who donated the handmade product before told the story of the quilt.
A woman named Sarah shared a photo of Rihanna and A$AP Rocky posing together and the quilt spread on the bed side by side in her post on her Instagram account.
Sarah wrote in her post:
We donated my grandmother’s quilt to a second hand shop a while ago. When I saw the #metgala photo, I immediately realized that it must be the same quilt. I read the designer’s interview with Vogue about finding the duvet in Southern California, his office wasn’t far from where we were.
