Lil Yachty made a big splash at the Council of Fashion Designers of America’s (CFDA) Fashion Awards in New York last night.
The American rapper hit the red carpet wearing a stylish Thom Browne ensemble and dazzling Swiss made Patek Philippe replica watches. The CDFA’s annual ceremony, which took place at the American Museum of Natural History this year, saw industry heavyweights and A-listers come together to celebrate the country’s best and brightest designers.
Thom Browne, the CFDA’s new chairman, dressed many of the VIPs, including Fashion Icon winner Serena Williams and Lil Yachty. The “One Night” singer donned the American designer’s instantly recognizable uniform: a pleated skirt, a crisp white shirt, a tailored jacket and vest, some over-the-calf socks, and a pair of loafers. To further elevate the look, Yachty added a black bow tie and the aforementioned wristy candy.
The high quality Patek Philippe fake watches in question appears to be a coveted Ellipse Squelette (Reference 3880). The luxury copy watches was launched in 1980 and discontinued in ‘98. In that short production period, it is estimated only a few hundred were made. Today, fewer than 30 examples are known to exist, according to the watch experts at Collectability. It’s hard to put a figure on Yachty’s reference, but a similar one (pictured top) hammered down for $27,500 at a Christie’s auction in 2020.
The AAA UK replica watches isn’t just rare, though; it’s beautiful, too. The distinctive oval-shaped case spans 32 mm and is made of 18-karat yellow gold, while the skeletonized dial showcases the manual movement (Caliber 177 Squelette). Rounding out the design is an elegant black leather strap.
Lil Yachty’s preppy outfit for the star-studded CFDA soiree is the polar opposite of the trendy streetwear he usually steps out in. Case in point: He recently paired Bottega Veneta’s popular Orbit sneakers with an Arc’teryx jacket showcasing Lorenz.OG’s “patented color schemes,” a pair of camo shorts, and a vibrant beanie. He has also sported pieces from Kenzo and Levi’s collaborative collection.
Yachty always opts for incredible best replica watches no matter the fit. The rapper has built an impressive watch collection over the years, too. He spoke about his cheap super clone watches with style icon Iris Apfel as part eBay’s Old School Meets New School series in 2021.
“My favorite watch is my skeleton Patek because I haven’t seen anybody with it,” he said at the time.
We get it.
