Migos may be an opening act on Drake’s tour, but the group’s performance outfits are taking over the spotlight.
Over the past few weeks, Quavo, Offset and Takeoff have sported everything from “Power Rangers”-esque flight suits to Nascar-inspired jumpsuits on stage — and their stylist, Zoe Costello, says there’s much more to come.
“They love clothes and fashion, and I knew they would never want to do one look for the whole tour,” Costello told Page Six. “So I knew the looks I chose had to be bold enough that they would want to re-wear them for a few days at least.”
Costello only had about a month to put together a comprehensive tour wardrobe for the trio, who are known for their opulent coordinated attire. Luckily, the stylist — who also works with Justine Skye and Vic Mensa as well as Flaunt magazine — has been dressing the Atlanta-based band for two years, and knew what would strike a chord.
Costello said that while Migos dresses themselves on a day-to-day basis, the rappers come to her when prepping for red carpets and performances. When you have a song called “Versace,” after all, it’s important to dress well.
But it’s the band’s track “Motorsport” (featuring Cardi B and Nicki Minaj) that seems to have influenced Migos the most lately. Their recent tour looks include motorcross-inspired jackets (custom-made by up-and-coming designer Moonman) paired with pants in bold neon prints, as well as the aforementioned Nascar-inspired getups.
“Quavo mentioned Nascar, and he likes jumpsuits a lot, so I was playing around with screen-printing and other ways we could achieve a similar look,” Costello explained. “I was looking at what other people are doing and trying to do something different, because I never want to do something similar to anyone else.”
Costello drew inspiration for Migos’ tour wardrobe from Prada’s latest menswear collections, as well as Moncler’s Palm Angels collaboration and old-school Diddy and Mase outfits. For the rapper’s memorable flight suits, Costello used Vivienne Westwood’s parachute shirts as a starting point, and then added reflective 3M strips for some extra shine.
But the biggest inspiration behind these outfits, Costello said, are Migos themselves. “Just as artists, [they’re] inspiring, to be honest,” Costello said. “They all collectively make decisions together as a group, and they all make sure they feel good about it. They definitely see eye to eye.”
