Good Morning Kingdom!!
So I’m high off last nights @LennyHenry Acceptance Speech @moboawards but I need to post this @footasylum are doing a #dontgounnoticed style campaign and asked me to write about my style…
I don’t think I am a Style Icon but I never go unnoticed especially when I’m wearing my Crown and Royal Robe ? seen here with the main man @ronniefieg @sneakernessparis last year… Who else wears the stuff I wear and is a real character in the Sneaker scene ? I love just wearing my bright and colourful Ghanaian Prints Primark Jeans (Yes Primark my designer days are long gone) and some dope Kicks… With my prints some of which are Kenté for me it’s the brighter the better, I always get noticed for my style and try to match it up to my kicks which sometimes I feel is very important it’s about the image and taking time not just flinging anything on. But sometimes it’s all about the low key look black on black but the kicks always gotta be fresh I think that’s the most important part for me to be honest.
I’m old so I don’t care but when I was younger I used to hate wearing battered Kicks but it made you appreciate what you wore when you knew you weren’t getting another pair for months and months which was why you had to start taking care of them.
As I grew older it was about standing out not really wearing or buying what everyone else has, it was about your own style and uniqueness nowadays everyone wants to buy the same thing cause of the hype? #Wack I’ll stick to my Prints and Kicks!! ? #dontgounnoticed #TBT #ThrowBackThursday #footasylum www.footasylum.com
