It’s Friday and you know what that means—a brand spankin’ new Dropcast episode to make your ears bleed with excitement. On this episode, hosts Noah Thomas and Jian DeLeon are joined by photographer Cam Hicks and Angelo Urrutia, your favorite influencer’s favorite influencer’s favorite behind-the-scenes creative director.
Cam has an upcoming photo exhibit at the Nepenthes store next week. Titled “For the Porch,” he explains the inspiration and some of the work we can expect to see. Angelo has had a storied career as one of the key creatives at Engineered Garments, working closely with founder Daiki Suzuki to keep the label consistently dope. Both of them talk about the brand’s latest Spring/Summer 2020 lookbook, which features Cam as one of the models.’
Cam also shares his story about how Virgil Abloh discovered his work through Instagram, and how he finessed his way into shooting for Louis Vuitton. Meanwhile, Angelo talks about his reputation for being up on cool shit for decades, and how being an early adopter sometimes means not getting credit where it’s due. BUT THAT’S WHAT WE’RE HERE TO FIX!
Then things shift to the QOTW: What brand should Engineered Garments collaborate with next?
Angelo’s been behind some of the cult label’s most fire collabs, like last year’s HOKA ONE ONE and this year’s Tarvas collab. Oh right—and those mismatched EG Vans you see all over SoHo. He also hints at an upcoming collab that sounds like it absolutely slaps.
