Wave, 24 “I’m wearing a vintage top from NY, vintage pants from Japan, and Maison Martin Margiela boots. I appreciate well thought-out design and good quality fabrics and I like to mix high and low labels, overall anything comfortable is best. Rei Kawakubo is always a favourite.” Aug 19, 2017 ∙ MoMa PS1
Austin, 22 “I’m wearing a cap and a t-shirt by Palace skateboards, the pants are Kappa X C2H4, the shoes Converse X CDG. I listen to and love hip-hop music, so I dress up like a hip-hop guy. My favorite brands are Palace skateboards and Cav Empt.” Aug 19, 2017 ∙ MoMa PS1
Joshua, 23 “I’m wearing a jacket by HOMIC, vintage jeans, and shoes by Gucci. A mix of what impresses me: my daddy, 80s business casual, Mrs. Potatohead and Jackie O. Usually I gravitate towards strong coats and suiting. I love keying it down with simple staples like tanks and slacks, but always with nice shoes.” June 8, 2017 ∙ Lower East Side
Monique, 23 “I am wearing a top from Nasty Gal, Zaful pants, and shoes by DSW. All other items are vintage. For this particular look, I was inspired by Foxxy Cleopatra and Pam Grier. My main thing about clothes is comfort. That often comes first. I’d say my style is a combination of boyish fitting clothes, street style, and a taste of feminine edge.” June 3, 2017 ∙ Lower East Side
Katherine, 20 “I’m wearing a blouse from Beacon’s Closet, hand-me-down disco pants from American Apparel, American Apparel fish net socks with Puma Fenty slippers. My glasses are Warby Parker. What inspires my style is definitely my culture and the environment in which I have grown up in. I am a Caribbean Afro-Latin from the Bronx and that makes me so proud. I put color and texture over everything, I live for lively and bold colors. However, to be honest, I am still figuring out between my style and border-like looking like a clown. Also, I want to be recognized as an adult. I feel like sometimes I look childish.” June 10, 2017 ∙ Lower East Side
Richard, 23 “I am wearing a vintage Dior top, Line&Dot pants, and Gucci loafers. My mood inspires my style. I like to wear things that make me feel cute.” May 25, 2017 ∙ Chinatown
