main (6) Adidas Air Jordan Bristol-Studio

Bristol Studio is one of the up-and-coming brands out of LA making waves with its basketball-inspired streetwear and adidas collabs. Designer Luke Tadashi stops by for the latest Dropcast to speak about his upcoming projects and gives young designers some advice on what moves they should be making to gain momentum and grow their following.

Since Jian DeLeon was in Chicago spitting facts on a panel, Jeff Carvalho filled in along with host Noah Thomas. They discuss a wide range of topics, from the tragic death of Nipsey Hussle to Supreme’s unexpected collaboration with Jean Paul Gaultier and whether the collection means a new day for the French fashion legend.

Luke explains how his move into fashion came about because he realized his dream of becoming an NBA star was definitely not happening — although he still manages to make sure basketball is part of his life in some capacity. Even if you can’t do exactly what you want, for Luke it’s important to find a way to stay involved with your passion.

You can catch Luke at this year’s Coachella, where he will be doing an activation with some of the NBA’s top players. More details coming soon.

For now, listen to our latest episode and feel free to let us know your thoughts on absolutely anything by calling The Dropcast Hotline: 833-HIGHSNOB-833-444-4766.
