VLONE founder and A$AP Mob co-founder, A$AP Bari, is currently involved in sexual allegations regarding an incident that occurred last month. According to reliable source NIKE has officially cut ties with A$AP Bari which leads to the termination of the VLONE x NIKE collection that was set to release.
NIKE can’t be blamed for doing this, never do business with someone that could harm your reputation due to their actions. The question is, what will happen with future VLONE collaborations ? I believe there is a way around this problem and that is for the ownership of VLONE to be transferred to A$AP Rocky. A$AP Rocky is the face of the A$AP Mob and despite him doing a collaboration with Adidas years ago, he is not part of team Adidas. If this occurred NIKE would possibly agree to continue to relationship with VLONE as a brand. If this doesn’t happen VLONE will have a hard time collaboration with any other big brand and will have to start producing their own sneaker models or just stick to clothing.
What will A$AP Bari do to solve this issue ? I have my take on it, what’s yours ? Let me know down below in the comments.
