Back in Black – I spotted Wei outside my new favorite coffee shop in Williamsburg and was drawn his textures. His SNS Herning sweater hinted of a waffle knit on fast forward and the fabric on his Carol Christian Poell pants was densely woven. (<< If you click their link, the video is worth the wait!) He’s also wearing a Rick Owens cap and Guidi shoes and topped off with a Chrome Hearts bracelet, plus rings that aren’t visible.
Wei is a designer who says his interest in fashion is in smaller artisanal studios. He explained, “The pieces I wear are generally minimal with emphasis in experimental textile treatments and unconventional construction techniques.” He’s up to something interesting in Williamsburg that I shouldn’t mention yet, but stay tuned and hopefully you’ll be seeing him again soon. I was curious where a guy with his taste shops and learned his favorite store is the tony Atelier New York. Natch.
