Fashion from the OVO Fest

The OVO Festival is a hip-hop event, organised by Drake, and hosted in his hometown of Toronto annually. lt is now in it’s fourth year, and with the likes of The Weeknd, Wale, P Diddy, Lil Wayne, Miguel, TLC (and Frank Ocean had he not been ill and had to pull out) hitting the stage on August 4th-5th, we took a look at some of this year’s fashion.

Drake hosted OVO in a number of outfits, and his own brand, October’s Very Own, appeared several times. Similar styles, including the below, are available at the official October’s Very Own website, but, likely due to the OVO Fest, the style you see below is currently sold out.

Drake also wore this Metallic Bomber Jacket from the Highland SS 2014 Collection:

It’s a brand Drake’s been wearing a lot of lately, it appears again on his Instagram here : http://instagram.com/p/csYoHNDQOH/).

As it is part of the SS 14 Collection, the jacket itself will not be available commercially for a while! Nevertheless Highland have got some gorgeous  AW mountaineering-style designs going on so it’s worth a look @ http://www.highlandus.com

Ladies if you like this bomber, Johnny B does a gorgeous, more feminine similar design  (featured in my fashion wishlist a few weeks ago: http://wp.me/p2IM8R-k6)

The Weeknd was (unsurprisingly) also supporting October’s Very Own at this year’s OVO, wearing the long-sleeved Owl Gaze sweatshirt:

P Diddy: 

At this year’s OVO, it seems not everyone was screaming “VERSACE VERSACE” but more Givenchy Givenchy, as both Wale & P Diddy appeared in the designer’s tees:

Givenchy may as well have had it’s own act at the OVO, because here it is again, this time with Wale, who wore this Twin Doberman Print Tee:

Wale was also sporting a Mitchell & Ness x Just Don snakeskin strapback from newly released “The Finals” limited edition collection. The collection was made in light of the ongoing 2013 NBA playoffs, and celebrates various NBA finals of the past two decades. The caps are made in six variations, and are available exclusively at the RSVP Gallery, retailing at around 400 US dollars.
