“the canvas can take many forms and for this issue’s art spread, it’s a white jansport knapsack. YRB reached out to a dozen artists to add their personal flair to a bag. with some keeping the art localized and other allowing their creativity to run wild.”
thanks to MARY KATE STEINMILLER for this write-up!!! i am such a nerd because TEEN VOGUE is on of the only fashion magazine i consistently buy (other than NYLON and FRENCH VOGUE)…and i am no teenager. i guess thats just how dope the publication is.
i was very honored to be interviewed by the great and charming character from the left coast, LEVI MAESTRO.
he took me around the city in an attempt to share my sneakers with friends and strangers…i was very unwilling, but got the hang of it in no time.
later we met up with our mutual homie 13TH WITNESS. it was hot CAMERA on CAMERA on CAMERA action!!!

the folks over at M.I.S.S. have always been so sweet to me and when they asked me to be a part of this new series they have about one’s own personal style – i was more than down. i really dress like a homeless person, but who am i to judge if they think it’s “style”
“Follow the Leader, Episode 2: Va$htie Kola
In the second episode of our new three-part webseries, Follow the Leader, M.I.S.S. introduces you to Va$htie.
Fondly dubbed â€œDowntownâ€™s Sweetheartâ€ by various NYC trendsetters, Va$htie Kolaâ€™s instantly recognizable aesthetic proves that style is far beyond fashion. The director and designer is unmatched in her ability to reconstruct memorable moments from our cultural pasts (she cites inspirations as diverse at Depeche Mode and Big Daddy Kane), and merge them with the best of whatâ€™s current. Her wardrobe incorporates a steady diet of all things grunge (thrifted flannels and aged cut-offs) with higher-end centerpieces. The result is a unique personal style that speaks volumes about the type of person Va$htie isâ€“ geuninely excited and inspired by individuality in all its forms.
In the below episode of Follow the Leader, Va$htie reveals the sentiment and inspiration behind three of her favorite looks.”
