Fashion forward online retailer SSENSE puts out a wide range of content from mixes to editorials with some of the game’s top stylists. Today they released an interview and photoshoot with the self proclaimed ‘King of the Youth’ Ian Connor. For the snapchat generation Ian has been a key figure to figuring out their personal style. He’s graduated from having a popular tumblr to work with Kanye on Yeezy Season 2 (as well as modeling the show) and styling for Wiz Khalifa.
What is it you think your team all sees eye to eye on?
We all have cool different visions that all fall into the same thing. Like I come from a hardcore punk background, that’s what I grew up on, so my style is based off of that. When I wear above knee shorts with a size large tee with Sk8-His, that’s where I come from. So like, I get that, and then they’ll like this, so we’ll just bring it all together some way, some how. Cause we’re all interested in the same aesthetic of things, no matter how much our mind jumps from thing to thing. We still know how to make it come together.
