Yasssss. Just in time for the weekend is a brand new video from NY-based rapper Le1f. The video features Le1f as the only man around (and alive?) dancing atop of ruins, and crossing swampland in a way that is supes elegant in a deserted and abandoned forest setting before making his way to a mysterious light on the other side of the woods. Excited about this video and all of the looks styled by Andreas Aresti yet? Then let's get started!

Who's that mysterious hooded figure in the olive green jacket? And what's up with that light?

Guys, we can never get enough of Asher Levine. We've been obsessed with the 25-year-old designer for the past few years (yep, he's been killing it since he was 22!) thanks to his mostly black, all-leather-everything futuristic ensembles that have been spotted on everyone from Lady Gaga to Rita Ora. This season, we were PUMPED to stop by his spring 2014 show, which featured a performance by funeral pop band MXMS (members include Shiny Toy Guns' Jeremy Dawson and Ariel Levitan). Asher stayed true to his dark roots and decked out his models in human anatomy-inspired pieces. Think: Molded, muscular silhouette vests and anatomical, spiky sleeved jackets. For the accessories, Asher said, "I wanted to imagine if we could grow the accessory in a laboratory, and then skin it. What would the accessory look like with it musculature underneath?" Our answer: awesome.

Asher Levine fall 2013

Oooh, Asher Levine. Every season we look forward to seeing the 24-year-old designer's collection for a multitude of reasons: 1.) He has created ensembles for some of our most favorite celebs (think Rita Ora and Lady Gaga); 2.) He always busts out the most badass, goth-meets-classic-tailored-menswear looks; and 3.) He's ALL about the music. He said this season was inspired by composer and producer Jim Steinman (who created hits like "Total Eclipse of the Heart" and "I'd Do Anything for Love (But I Won't Do That)") mixed with a dark obsession of bats and skulls. For the show, DJ Mess Kid took these songs and created his own, one-of-a-kind soundtrack for the models to walk to (which you can hear a sample of here), but the coolest part of his collection were the parts you couldn't see.

Rita Ora Asher Levine

Proving that the pop star's year of domination isn't quiiiite over yet, Rita Ora just HAD to squeeze in one more project before 2012 comes to a close. The pop star dropped her "Radioactive" music video upon the world yesterday, and let's just say the ex-terrestrial clip is equally as killer as the Sia-penned track. It features not-so-subtle Illuminati references, spacey graphics, and out of this world outfits...including a key costume by our boy Asher Levine. The New York designer and MTV Style fave custom-crafted the molded skin jumpsuit for Rita, a statement look that takes cues from his own Spring 2013 collection. "We had been talking to Rita Ora's stylist for some time about possibly dressing her," he explained to us over the phone yesterday. "When they got the direction for her new video and they needed a super futuristic cyber-type of outfit, they came to us." Sci-fi has never looked so cool.

Asher Levine Halloween Masks

Just when we thought our massive throbbing blog-crush on Asher Levine couldn't get any bigger, the designer (who BTW has stamps of approval from both Lady Gaga and her creative director Nicola Formichetti at just 24 years old) pumps out a range of Halloween masks. The limited edition All Hallows' Eve collection hit Pop Souk yesterday (Sunday, Oct. 21) and featured spook-ified versions of fashion (and pop culture) favorites like Anna Wintour rendered "Editor from the Blue Lagoon" and Chanel's Karl Lagerfeld as Count Lagerfeld.

Asher Levine Spring 2013

Mini MTV Style history lesson: We've been obsessed with designer Asher Levine since we first chatted him up back in 2010. The then-22 year old was already designing outfits for Lady Gaga (HUGE!), and just last year he collabed with Mother Monster's fashion director Nicola Formichetti on a line of tees that sold at his pop-up shop in Soho. Just when we thought it couldn't get any better, spring 2013 fashion week hit, and we found ourselves on yacht (yeah, a YACHT) with Asher himself discussing all the deets behind his latest fashion show—which, lucky for us, would include a live performance by one of our hip-hop faves, Le1f!

Asher Levine Fall 2012

You may know Asher Levine for creating those to-die-for leather pieces for Lady Gaga (um, oversized motorcycle jacket anyone?), but the menswear designer has come a long way since his big 2010 debut. We stopped by his fall 2012 presentation, and we were immediately engulfed into his dimly-lit, post apocalyptic world filled with military-style jumpsuits, light-up helmets, and futuristic sunglasses. He carried over some of the alien-esque accents from last season (think: rubber tentacles and claws), but what mostly caught our eye were the glowing MakerBot printers busily working in the back of the room.

Lady Gaga in Asher Levine

The Information Super Highway has been clocking maximum speeds when it comes to news about Lady Gaga's "Marry the Night" music video, which has been shooting all over Manhattan for the past few weeks. Mama Monster was spotted atop a car garage in the rain and on the street looking—from what we can tell in the blurry cell phone shots—FEROCIOUS. We're talking black catsuits and a growl-worthy Imma gonna CUT YOU face that makes us both excited and skurrrred at the same time. Quite simply, WE CANNOT WAIT FOR THIS. So, what did we do when we received the first official photos of Gagalicious in her actual costume today? We did an open-mouth Edvard Munch-style scream and then promptly started typing this post so you, too, could see the glorious gutter magic of the custom-designed Asher Levine jumpsuit for yourself. Did we mention it's accessorized with BLOOD?

Asher Levine

We caught up with designer Asher Levine TWICE during fashion week (call us incredibly lucky)—the first time to talk about his exclusive Asher X Nicola collab at Nicola Formichetti's pop-up store in Soho and AGAIN after the much-anticipated spring 2012 menswear show. And whewww, boy! Asher DELIVERED. His mostly black, gray, and dark purple line reflected his inspiration, which he called an "infection in New York City." (Let's just say his invite was "Asher Levine" etched into an alien claw inside a biohazard bag.) His pieces ranged from raw hemmed mesh pants to exposed zipper jumpsuits with veiny Katy Perry "E.T."-esque makeup to create his own "alternate universe."

Lady Gaga's fashion director Nicola Formichetti FINALLY opened his much-talked about pop-up shop to the world today, and, um, OBVIOUSLY we ran over there as fast as our 5-inch platforms could take us. Immediately upon walking in, we tried super hard not to fall into a mirrored trance (we seriously can't even count how many times we thought a wall was another room and walked into it. Sorry about all those fingerprints *ducks*) and got lost in a world full of GORGEOUS vintage Versace, Mugler pieces so expensive that they didn't even list the price, and, of course, THE dildo shoes Lady Gaga wore on American Idol. But remember those pop-up store exclusive Asher Levine X Nicola collab tees that we loveloveLOVE? Well, they were there in all their shining glory! And it just so happens that Asher Levine himself agreed to give us lowdown on his collaboration AND give us a tour of the store by showcasing all of his favorite items (the DAY before his S/S 2012 show, mind you. *slow clap*).

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
