“I don’t know anyone in the whole wide world who dress better than me,” declared Young Thug on Thursday evening, just hours before his new album, “No My Name Is Jeffery,” dropped at midnight. The stunning album cover of him wearing a Japanese-inspired ensemble by Alessandro Trincone is probably the best evidence of this claim, but the Atlanta rapper has been a fashion vanguard since the beginning of his career — stepping out in everything from Uggs to overalls. Here, Thug’s most out-of-this-world looks before he became Jeffery.

Jeffery spotted this look by Italian designer Alessandro Trincone through VFILES. He’s about to be a mentor for their New York Fashion Week panel, and this kimono-like dress was one of the pieces that they showed him during their meeting. He requested that it be shipped immediately to Atlanta, so that he could wear it on the album cover.
