Detroit rapper Dej Loaf, who hit big this year with the murking dudes (among other things) single "Try Me," is further down the path to well-deserved stardom with a new photo shoot in Elle. The "Try Me" line "rock that all white when I'm feeling godly" takes on literal meaning.
Noting her love for a fur, Elle dressed her in winter whites—the classiest of all the seasonal trends, no matter what year it is—and gave her fuzzy accoutrements in the form of hats by Pologeorgis. In most of the photos we've seen, Dej leans towards baggy jeans, sneakers, and some other garment to flash up her streetwear, so Elle took it 180 and put her in sleek, hyper-feminine, super sophisticated looks that gave her a snow queen aura but were still flossy enough to work in her famously fly hometown—especially with the fur accents on the Sophia Webster shoes in the photos below (left and right). Love her in the super-chic, fringed Camilla and Marc Woodswallow dress, in middle. The return of mules is also a welcome addition to 2015, at least for now. (They can be difficult to walk around in, and can make audacious slapping noises against your heel like flip-flops, so I'm here with a tentative cosign even though I like the look.)
But they kept consistent with her own style, too, giving her slightly avant-garde takes on her menswear proclivities. They also split the difference with a long Breelayne skirt and Raoul Sport sneakers.
Really here for the CF. Goldman jacket/belt/pants combo that makes her look like a karate master as envisioned by Rei Kawakubo—a great look from an up-and-coming young designer for an up-and-coming young rapper, that's that new new.
