Christopher, 19 “My key elements when creating my look are volume, color and textures. I always have to have a juxtaposition of heavy metal & workwear, a construction worker type of aesthetic with a strong streetwear/loungewear presence. I believe more is more. You can never go wrong with mixing multiple color palettes. I’m a huge fan of Wales Bonner, Jacquemus, Loewe, JW Anderson, Simone Rocha, Delpozo, Shrimps, Y’s, Céline, Proenza Schouler, Hood by Air and Gypsy Sport.” May 21, 2017 ∙ Union Square

Leni, 27 “I am wearing an Adidas top, vintage jeans, Adidas Stan Smith sneakers. Instagram, Tumblr, and old music videos inspire me. I like the 90s, boys clothes, hiphop, workwear, sports clothes. Basically anything that isn’t to lady like and glamorous.” May 15, 2017 ∙ Bowery

Jason, 45 “I’m wearing a Christian Lacroix eyewear, a KTZ top, and Osklen pants. Every time I dress I approach that process as though I am a black canvas. I love finding that right story of the day but it’s very organic and spontaneous. I like to push the envelope and how I combine certain things. I like forward-looking silhouettes, and things that are not easily identifiable. And I usually don’t dress on trend.” May 13, 2017 ∙ Industry City

Mary, 25 “I have on vintage Courreges pants James Veloria, Gucci boots, a Prada bag and a Lemaire for Uniqlo jacket. I’m inspired by editorials from the 1970s, 80s & 90s. I love a good lady look but with a twist. I like to look put together and like a lady but also a little out there at the same time. On the other hand I like to dress like a boy. I try to buy things that will never go out of style in my opinion. I purchase a lot of vintage and thrifted clothing, but I love a good pair of designer shoes to pull it all together.“ May 14, 2017 ∙ Industry City

Brandon, 31 “I’m wearing a Jil Sander coat, a Comme des Garçons top, vintage snake skin pants, and vintage gold boots. My style inspiration? Whatever fantasy I’m feeling that day. I like ethically made clothes that don’t take themselves too seriously. Dressing with a sense of humor/elegance.” May 13, 2017 ∙ Chinatown

Katie, 27 I’m wearing a jacket by Judith Roberts from Kit Vintage, Issey Miyake top and pants, Jacquemus shoes with some VADA jewelry. Travel and exploring various cultures inspire my style the most, along with observing other people around the world and the way they dress. I love mixing vintage clothing and jewelry with new designer pieces. I look for interesting color and design in everything I buy, and texture is a plus.” May 13, 2017 ∙ Industry City
