In almost every suburban town there are hidden spots of graffiti art. This week’s Fashionisto showed me an awesome place between railroad tracks and a lake. Graffiti, like any other form of art, inspires fashion. There is definitely an overlap between graffiti and fashion. Vogue Paris, Vogue Brazil and Glamour are some of the many fashion editorials that incorporated graffiti into the pages of their issues. Let us see how this suburban graffiti complements this Fashionisto’s style.
Name: Juan Sebastian Sepulveda
Major: Industrial Design
CollegeFashionista: Tell me where you got each piece of your outfit.
Juan Sebastian Sepulveda: My hat is from Supreme and I’m wearing Jordan shoes. I got my jeans from The Hundreds, a shop in New York City, but they also have an online store. My shirt is from H&M.
CF: What stores do you shop at regularly?
JSS: I mostly shop at urban and skateboard stores. I have great connections through my internship and friends. Some include Supreme, Ten Deep and The Hundreds. But I also shop at H&M and Urban Outfitters.
CF: If you could have anyone’s wardrobe who would it be and why?
JSS: Alexander McQueen, may he rest in peace. He was such a cool man with a cool wardrobe. His style may have been a bit over the top but he did it well.
CF: How does your major influence your style?
JSS: I am a designer and as a designer I have to recognize that there is a fine line between relaxed and dressy trends. I am aware of the trends and wear some of them but I can’t be too trendy or uptight.
CF: Describe your style in three words.
JSS: Relaxed, street and culture.
How To: To get this urban look, start off with a black and yellow plaid shirt. Combine it with a pair of pants from The Hundreds and black and yellow Jordans. Top it off with a Supreme hat and black shades. With this outfit, you are now ready to hit the streets in style.
