Judging by the Instagram message Drake posted last night, two things are clear.
First, he has no problem announcing his obsession with Drakkar Noir to the world.
He wore a T-shirt emblazoned with the logo of the classic drugstore men’s cologne. (Fun fact: He also has a tattoo of the scent’s bottle.)
Secondly, Drake is still not over Rihanna, at least not according to his socks. The rapper sported a colorful pair from Rihanna’s latest Fenty x Stance collection.
And don’t think it was just a random top-drawer choice, either. The socks were patterned with an image of Rihanna from the music video for “Work,” in which they both starred last year. So what to make of this not-so-subtle sartorial gesture? Well, for one, Mercury is in retrograde, a time when people from one’s past are said to resurface, and emotions tend to run high.
Perhaps this is the rapper’s way of extending an olive branch to his rumoured former love. There might even be more tender Rihanna fashion tributes on the horizon—who knows!—or better still, a reciprocal selfie from the Bad Gal herself donning some OVO merch.
