Young Money star Drake proved he is taking his new luxury October's Very Own x Canada Goose Chillwack jacket line seriously by showing it off during a live New Year's Eve telecast this past weekend.
Performing multiple records from his new Take Care album, Drizzy was spotted sporting his jacket in New York City's Times Square.
Drake performed several tracks off Take Care last night at Times Square for Carson Daly's NYE. Since it was an outdoor event, the Toronto rapper decided to rock his newly released October's Very Own x Canada Goose Chiliwack Jacket. Duh. Even his DJ, Future The Prince, wore one too. The jacket features black buffalo leather, silk lining with the OVO Owl print, and 24k gold hardware. Yeah, all you need is that OVO and XO. If you've got $5,000 to drop, head over to Nepenthes now to cop the jacket--that is, if it isn't sold out yet. (Complex)
The same night, Drake also thanked his fans for their support throughout 2011.
"Thanks to everyone who showed love in 2011. Tomorrow I want nothing to change...we are on the right path.," he tweeted December 31st. (Drake's Twitter)
Details on Drake's new pricey jacket venture emerged last week.
The Canadian rapper and his crew October's Very Own have teamed up with Canada Goose to design a high-end jacket. And it's not your average cold weather gear, this goose down creation will costs a pretty penny. $5000 CDN to be exact, which means it will run you $4,895 in the states. Eek! The jacket features a buffalo leather exterior, silk lined interior, a snorkel hood with removable fox fur trim and 24-karat gold plated hardware. Oooo la la! The perfect find for those with flashy taste and deep pockets. (Huffington Post)
In November, the rap star designed a separate retail jacket.
Still, from the guy who once designed a $500 varsity jacket with Roots and has aspirations of doing a sweater collaboration with Missoni, we suppose we shouldn't be surprised about how much the jacket costs. So if you have really, really deep pockets and feel an intense and burning need to look like it this winter, we may have found just the piece of outerwear for you. Check out pictures of it below while we check eBay to see if there's any stuff from The North Face selling for under $100. (Styleite)
