When I started I looked up to Carine Roitfeld, she was so elevated she was levels. She made me aware of the power a stylist has. It looked like you threw something on but it still looked so expensive, she really captured that money can’t buy style - she could turn a Gucci piece that looked like nothing into the craziest outfit by how she threw it together. I have lots of different worlds in my mind that collide into one vibe - Japan, anime, Bruce Lee, Apple, philosophy, spirituality.. I was also heavily Ye-fluenced. Working beside Kanye first of all, gave me confidence in myself, he believed in me. He also taught me to not take designers / runways / clothes too literally, but twist them into something new and more interesting than commerce, than pretentiousness - his styling feels like the highest level of music, art, architecture and fashion in one. Being original and paying no mind to rules or to the system, for me, thats the aesthetic.
