Last week, or week before last, I took a trip up to New York with E to attend Bobby Hundreds Book signing. It was dope we spent the day plastering Goonmilk Scavenger Hunt posters up and eating good until it was time to hit the book signing that ended up being standing room only and some people didn’t even get in, stuck in the rain. Eventually we were stuck in as well waiting for our Megabus. Nonetheless the mission was accomplished I got my hard copy signed and gave Bobby a GoonMilk bottle tee for inspiring my streetwear aspirations throughout the years. Thank you again for the wise words and community that is the Hundreds.

My Suit it should thank me!

Last night the 2019 Espy’s aired on ESPN. If you aren’t aware the Espy’s are ESPN’s yearly Oscar/Grammy-esque awards show where the best atheletes in the world are recognized for the years Best of the Best. I didn’t catch the actual awards because one I barely turn my tv on if it’s not for Netflix docs or 2K, and two, I didn’t know the host this year. But nonetheless I am a student of styling and love seeing red carpet outfits, here’s a few of my favorite fits!

The Louis shoulder bag completes the fit to me.

Real Tree Camo fits will always be fire to me when pulled off correctly, and with the Louis Sneakers Von Miller killed it.

I know the title says suit, but I think those who chose to drip different took the cake this year. Although the OG Stephen Jackson pulled off the sneakers and suit look perfectly, definitely worth an honorable mention.

When designing I like to repurpose garments and bring life to something people would usually disregard. You’d be surprised how many pairs of vintage US Army Issue fatigues i come across thrifting. Seeing those and being the rebel I am, I figured why not customize a few pair. The Juxtaposition of using Camoflauge and Applying large logos to stand out is a trick I picked up failing out of art classes in college. Crazy right, because I love art but being in Baltimore by 8am coming from Upper Marlboro daily was a task so I took attendance L’s every semester 🤷🏽‍♂️. Anyway; taking something like camofluage, normally used to hide, and printing undeniably huge logos over it to pop out at first glance. The urge to stare is almost undeniable.  The Camo blends but the logos jump at you!

This past throwback Thursday I went as far back in my iNstagram as I could and kind of reminisced ok everything I’ve done in the IG age... yes the IG age, our time has been broken down into social media ages instead of years or centuries... right now we’re in the IG age, the age before was twitter, yes it’s still here but we’re about to go into the Live age where everything is recorded live.

Anyways I digress, I came across a old pic of me on 106th and Park in Tabi Bonney’s video TOHL (Time Of Her Life) feat. Fat Trel. Now I owe this occurrence to my girl at the time who was actually casted for the video I was just there for her ride to and from, ended up staying the entire shoot each day and finessed my way into a party scene thanks to Tabi and Director 6 so shoutout to those guys... I say all this to get to the point that I’ve been behind the scenes for years now like a fly on the wall soaking up game. The things I speak on are factual because I was there I can tell you first hand how a video shoot is supposed to go, I’ve been to magazine shoots, I’ve been in the studio with niggas like glizzy, trel, lightshow way before the world knew DC had talent. Feeling like I’m a staple in the game. #YouWasntThere

As you all should know, this week is NYFW, and unfortunately I am in bed with no way up at the moment. But that does not mean I am missing out. The best invention this generation has revolutionized today is the camera. Phone cameras and live feeds, are literally making the world as small as your smart phone of choice. So as I lay here in my laziness I am actually in class with Virgil Abloh at the Nike Ten Off Campus event via youtube and simultaneously front row watching the Tom Ford and Vfiles S/S '18 shows via Instagram Live. Now I would much rather be in New York getting looks off but this is the broke students crutch. Watching everything I can from true events this week gaining much needed inspiration, insight, and just raw knowledge of the fashion industry. I'm really into the Off Campus events with Nike and Virgil's "the Ten". Watching these discussions has been like watching the OG's discuss their old war stories, dropping gems that kids rarely hear. From failures to upcoming ideas, to why Jordan chose Spike Lee back in 85... Virgil has put together a code breaking culmination of fashion invention alongside the most known brand in the world (Nike) and I am here for it. Check out some of the discussions here and continue to follow via Nike on YouTube.
