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 #coveteur.com:
“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.”
