What inspires your style?
Steven: My father. He has such a clean cut look no matter where he's headed. Fresh off the iron slacks to the supermarket b. He's stylin' on you son.

Where are your favorite places to shop?

Steven: Barneys, Supreme, A Bathing Ape & most recently Kith.

When did you start taking interest in fashion?
Steven:I started taking an interest in fashion in high school. All the girls admired all of the guys who dressed well and I wanted to be that guy so I started researching different brands and changing my looks up. I think it worked..

Do you agree with the famous quote by Yves Saint Laurent, "Fashion fades styles eternal"? Why or why not?
Steven: Of course ,I agree with it. Fashion is constantly changing. For example,look at how SoHo was a year ago. Everyone was dressing in Bape & Billionaire Boys Club gear but now everyone is trying their best to imitate the whole A$AP theme with SSUR & Y-3. Fashion like this wont stay around forever. Kids will eventually move onto another kind of fashion. Style is eternal. To me, thats your sense on how to put certain articles of clothing together. You'll always have that in some shape or form.

Who is your favorite designer or brand? Why?
Steven: My all time favorite brand will always be Supreme (Sounds like something a hypebeast would say but hey..). I say that because they just don't give a fuck. They are willing to put a hairy pussy on a tee and not give a fuck. Most brands wouldn't have done it but Supreme just has the balls to do things like that.

What is your favorite fashion quote?
Steven: “Just be true to yourself, and listen as much as one is able to to other people whose opinions you respect and look up to but in the end it has to come from you. You can’t really worry too much by looking to the left and the right about what the competition is doing or what other people in your field are doing. It has to be a true vision.” - Anna Wintour

What is one thing about your style that no one knows?
Steven: Hm... It's that I sometimes look at what women wear to piece together new styles.

Steven is the Sneaker King. One of my favorite friends get inspired and check out more of his style on instagram @steventravis  <3 Killa

When did you start taking interest in fashion?
Jordan: I always had an interest in fashion but once I was able to go out and buy my own clothes it was a whole new game. This was around when I was 13

Do you agree with the famous quote by Yves Saint Laurent, "Fashion fades styles eternal"? Why or why not?
Jordan: Yea I do. A lot of people don't realize that it's not the clothes you wear but how you wear them. Just because you have on a $5000 outfit of whats new in season doesn't mean you have style. Having style to me means a mixture of old, new, and expensive while incorporating your personality.

Who is your favorite designer or brand? Why?
Jordan: It's hard for me to really just say one designer is my favorite. Here are my top two that

Maison Martin Margiela: his style of deconstructionism is what really appeals to me. All of his designs are reincarnated products that were once trash to someone but given a new life.

Kosuke Tsumura: He started a brand in 1994 by the name of Final Home, which is no longer around, with Issey Miyake as his backer. The entire aesthetic of the brand was Post Apocalyptic wear. Every garment was designed as if it were your final home. He became known for doing oversized jackets with multiple large pokets to store anything to help with your survival if the world were to come to an end.

What is your favorite fashion quote?
Jordan: Fashion can be bought style you must posses.

What is one thing about your style that no one knows?
Jordan: I hate to match my socks with anything I wear

Everyone Meet the flyest person I know. My good friend Jordan. This guy literally was schooling me on fashion, something that no one has ever done before. If you want check out more of his lavish outfits follow him on instagram @black_velvet

Effortless Street Style

I'm back in NY!!!! So the first thing I did was go to Soho to get some street styles. When choosing people to be apart of my street styles I was mainly looking for effortless style. Being in Soho NY there are a lot of "wanna be" fashionista's and metrosexual's but being the person I am, I can always tell when someone is trying way to hard to dress. So here are my effortless street styles enjoy :*

East Coast Project

Last night I attended an exclusive pop up shop for the launch of the patiently waited men's brand Kith's "East Cost Project" (ECP) collection. This project was made by Ronnie Fieg and is Kith's collaboration with eight brands and a full in house collection. The collaboration brands include Playcloths, ASICS, Just Don, Golden Bear, Stance, Stampd, Herschel Supply and Tina Catherine. This line is composed of sneakers, backpacks, jackets, t-shirts and snapbacks. The main theme behind this project is Miami Dolphins colors (Orange, Teal & White) and New York's Knicks colors (Orange, Royal Blue & Black). The two cities which I live in. The pop up shop was divided into two sections one for Miami and one for New York. This collaboration has not launched yet in New York but has in Miami. The launch in New York at Kith pop up shops in Manhattan and Miami is dated for May 10, 2013. You can visit Kith's website Here
