AFROPUNK Style and Fashion: Men’s Festival Style

One month ago I experienced New York's first Men's Fashion Week (Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, Day 4). It was a wonderful palette of masculine style from one of the world's best cities. Yesterday, I entered the gates of AFROPUNK (an outdoor music festival in Brooklyn)… and the style, well, let's just say there's no where in the world in which you'll see such a diverse collection of garments, textures, and styling. The people here, ranging from babies to great grand parents, were the coolest (queue the Lupe Fiasco album). Individuality was on fleek (meaning: turned up to the highest capacity).

The Streetstyle of AFROPUNK (Mens):


Trends: Patterned Socks, Harem Pants, & Modified Espadrilles

Socks socks socks– whether striped or native-printed they're the latest essential statement making accessory for men. Stance and Nigel Knox loaded us up on socks, so in a late winter shoot we paired them with a few new pairs of Toms, stylish threads from Onassis, and a few other pieces.

"playing chinese checkers"; vintage Gant plaid button-up; selvedge Levis: Nigel Knox skull socks; Toms desert botas; LRG belt, Nixon watch

A few years ago it was all about skull scarves, last year and the year before skull velvet slippers, this year you gotta have atleast one pair of skull socks.

LRG crewneck sweater; Meltin' Pot denim; Stance camouflage socks; suede Toms shoes

Toms continues to recreate their "buy a pair, we give a pair" espadrilles with newer styles like the suede cordones (featured above) to the canvas desert botas.

vintage Atlanta snapback; Onassis chambray jacket shirt; Onassis harem pants; UGG sneakers; LRG scarf

Onassis has created a perfect pair of modern harem pants, not too over-exaggerated and Hammer-like, but just enough dimension in the shape to a second-look. (You can't see it in the pic, but the crotch of the pants does sag a bit, which of course adds to the authenticity of it being a pair of harems)
