everything you think of
will become all of me
look at me and be my lady
you’re my twenties~
– 20, seventeen

As @kanyewest’s personal barber, it’s a given that @ibnjasper owns a pair of Yeezys in every style and color—not to mention the shelves of @Vans, Jordans, and the @diamondsupplyco shoes he designed that make up his must-see sneaker collection. Learn how he started cutting hair, his thoughts on the role of skate culture in fashion, and why ‘work smart, not hard’ is his personal motto on
“When I got my first job—I started cutting hair freshman year and then I got my first job in the summer between sophomore and junior year. I went back to school junior year and had seven pairs of Girbaud [jeans] and ten Girbaud shirts and a pair of Air Max BW’s and a pair of Scottie Pippen Flights. Then I instantly became one of the popular kids. I got into clothing to be invisible. I wanted to blend in. You get talked about if you have bad clothes. I was like, ‘Okay, everyone is in this, so that is what I’m going to wear so I’m not noticed.’ I am in this style industry, so people think my value is in that, but I’m the opposite—I am fresh to be invisible.”
