Swae Lee is definitely having a moment. After appearing on hits by Post Malone, Ellie Goulding and Madonna, he’ll also join Posty on his Runaway Tour this September. Now, he’s got a feature in the New York Times in which he reveals all his fashion secrets.
According to the Times, the Rae Sremmurd member is getting ready to release his second solo album, the followup to 2018’s Swaecation. There aren’t any additional details on that, but Swae is happy to reveal, “I sleep with my jewelry on. I take a shower and do everything with it.”
“I like elegant jewels. I don’t like mine super-flashy,” he continues. “I don’t like too much ‘rapper’ jewelry, necessarily.”
While he admits splurging on a “fly” Patek Philippe watch, he admits, “I don’t even really wear it because it’s too much to bust out.”

The rapper has also splurged on his shoe collection. He claims to have 2,000 pairs, and notes, “I like them box fresh. That’s the only thing. I can really just wear them one time unless you throw them in the wash.”
Some of his other favorites include Vetements jackets, pants by Amiri or ThePeopleVs, and button-down shirts by Dolce & Gabbana, AllSaints, Versace, and Asos. But there’s one particular brand he won’t rock.
“I just don’t wear Gucci,” he explains. “I was going hard, wearing hella Gucci at one point. But they don’t show love for the field that I’m in. They actually don’t seem to want rappers to wear it, but we really make the brand super-popular. I just save my energy for brands that will support you.”
