By now you’ve surely seen the photos from A$AP Illz “Around The Way” editorial, but behind every successful photoshoot is always some behind the scenes chaos. Luckily for us, we happened to have cameras on the scene to capture the whole thing.

We set up a base at editor Tabatha McGurr’s apartment in Bed-Stuy, and the commotion was non-stop from 9am till’ evening. There were steamers blowing smoke, hair and makeup being applied in all corners of the house, and A$AP Illz diligently browsing through DKNY samples on the rack, pairing looks together for our three lovely models. We could keep going into detail, but you’re better off just having a look for yourself.

And if you haven’t copped your Special Edition: DKNY x FRANK book yet, get ’em here before they’re all gone!
