A woman named Sarah saw pictures of A$AP Rocky’s Met Gala outfit – a multicolored quilt that he wore wrapped around his shoulders – and it triggered a familiar memory. The strong feeling led Sarah to investigate the quilt to make sense of her nostalgic inclination.
“I read the Vogue article about the designer finding the quilt in Southern California and with his office no that far from us in Venice California, I demanded that my mom go look for the photos of it on our old bed,” Sarah wrote in the caption of an Instagram post. She continued, “Looks like great grandma Mary went to the #metgala with @asaprocky.”
According to HipHipDX, some Instagram users thought that Sarah was accusing Rocky of stealing her blanket which caused her to clarify the original post with a second one. It read, “I posted this because I found it amazing that some thing that my great grandmother made out of love for my mother, to be used to keep her warm, and was donated so that it might keep somebody else warm or sold to raise funds for a lovely charity, ended up being used for an amazing statement art piece by amazingly talented people who took it to the next level.”
