Young Money's Drake is leaving the Gucci and Louis Vuitton in the closet for the next few weeks as reports claim Drizzy is donning an exclusive, custom-made assortment of clothing items for his current "Would You Like A Tour?" nationwide run.
According to reports, Drizzy has teamed up with a fashion expert for a collection of items he can be spotted wearing throughout the tour.
The famous US brand's menswear designer Italo Zucchelli has created a number of looks for the rapper's new tour. Drake's 2013 North American tour, which hits Toronto, Ontario Thursday evening at the Air Canada Centre will see the Canadian rapper sporting a mix of custom-made and runway pieces from the men's Calvin Klein Collection lines. The bomber jackets, hoodies, t-shirts, tanks and pants are organized into three distinctive aesthetics: blue sky, sporty and denim. (New York Daily News)
Renowend designer Italo Zucchelli has showered Drizzy with accolades since partnering up.
"I love Drake -- he is very talented and I like his effortless attitude in terms of his style and music," said Zucchelli. "It's a perfect fit for me to work with him and I am very excited for him to wear my designs for his tour" he added. Zucchelli has previously designed red carpet and stage looks for fellow rappers Kanye West and Jay-Z as well as R&B stars Justin Timberlake, Usher and Miguel (who is also opening for Drake on the current tour). Earlier this week Kanye West showed off a new specially made wardrobe for his "Yeezus" tour created by Parisian luxury brand Maison Martin Margiela. (New York Daily News)

According to reports, Drizzy received a slight jump on his special day the night before.
Drake turns 27 today, but last night he celebrated with his friends and family at a classy affair in Toronto. In between shows on his "Would You Like a Tour?" the Canadian rapper got dressed up in a white tuxedo and purple bow tie and partied the night away. The Moet was flowing and shots were passed around as he toasted with his tourmates and fellow Scorpios Future and Miguel. He blew out the candles on his OVO cake, which was made to look like his hometown with the CN Tower, "Started From the Bottom" billboard, white Bentley, and his favorite spot Habibiz Cafe. "More than any man could ask for," wrote the birthday boy. He received wishes from his friends including Nicki Minaj. "Happy BDay champagnepapi!!!!!" tweeted his Young Money labelmate. Drake will celebrate his actual birthday at his concert in Toronto tonight. (Rap-Up)
