What kind of look are you trying to achieve with the way you dress?

That bummy aesthetic. That homeless aesthetic Comfy. I’m not trying to flex- just be comfy, comfortable.

Who are some of you fashion icons and inspirations?

I don’t dress like them at all anyone any of the clothes they wear but Ray Kyle Kuvo who’s like an avant-garde fashion designer from Japan, Mason Margiella Hare Ackerman, all those heads. I like how they changed fashion from being something commercial, from something you buy to an art form.

What are some of your favorite stores?

I don’t really shop at big stores but I like the thrift stores, I make my own stuff and I like toss. You can always find a flex for less.

What trends are you really into right now

I see turtlenecks coming back, ’90s are kinda getting outplayed a little bit but I think the ’90s aesthetic is always cool too.

Are there any trends you hate?

Supreme is a meme now. I don’t like it. People just throw Supreme on like a Supreme tee, Supreme beanie and they call it a day, and I don’t like that.
