‘Sounds Great-Grandma God to the Met Gala’: The Unique Story Behind A$AP Rocky

Admit it, you thought when you first saw A$AP Rocky’s 2021 Met Gala Outfit Earlier this month, it was like a cozy quilt. You’re not wrong, for apparel—if you can even call it that—it has a really special story as to how it came to be.

The American rapper was seen in attendance at the special gala with alleged girlfriend pop star Rihanna, in which he wore a quilt-style cape designed by Ellie Russell Linetz. The two turned heads and rocked the red carpet, and according to a Guardian In the report, the designer explained that when the rapper visited the studio, he “gravitated to a giant quilt in the ERL spring collection.”

“He was, like, ‘I want that,'” Linetz was quoted as stating new York Times.

Interestingly, the multicolored quilt dress has become a nostalgia piece. Instagram user ‘books_n_babies’ wrote about the quilt a week after the Met Gala. Identifying herself as Sarah, she captioned an image featuring the power couple and the original quilt together: “So my great-grandmother’s quilt was donated to an antique/thrift store a while back. When I saw the #MetGala photo, I immediately realized it must be the same quilt.”

Sarah further reveals about the red, yellow, blue, green and blanket of flowers that she “read” the trend The article about the designer finding the quilt in Southern California, and with his office in Venice California not far from us, demanded that my mom see pictures of it on our old bed”.

“Looks like great grandmother Mary went to the #MetGala with @asproky and @erl__________.”

It is believed that Linetz previously pointed out the trend that she chose to use an ‘antique quilt’ she found at a thrift store for the Met Gala theme,’In America: A Dictionary of Fashion‘, because of its “historical connection to the American experience”.

“There’s an intense narrative to this piece, it’s beautiful on the outside, inside it represents a world of memories,” Linetz was quoted as saying.

In a separate follow-up post, Sarah shared more photos of the quilt, clarifying that she wanted to post the photos because she thought it was “amazing”, and not because her family was “accusing someone of theft.” or because they want money.

“I posted this because I found it amazing that my great-grandmother lovingly made one for my mom, used it to keep her warm, and donated it so it could keep someone else warm or money for a cutie.” Sold to raise donations, finally being used for an amazing statement art piece by amazingly talented people who took it to the next level,” she wrote.

What do you think of this enduring outfit that has won hearts?
