Last month, we partnered up with Barneys on thedrop@barneys, a two-day shopping event that saw the release of 30 exclusive capsule collections from labels like OFF-WHITE, 424, Greg Lauren, FEAR OF GOD, and more. The event brought together curious shoppers, streetwear fans, and many designers including Greg Lauren, Virgil Abloh, Guillermo Andrade, and Heron Preston to create a social hub that blends streetwear culture and the high-end retail marketplace into one.
Designer/DJ Heron Preston stayed pretty busy at thedrop showing off his exclusive “24 Hour Psycho” collection from his namesake brand, and also provided his DJ service for a hype set to concluded a jam-packed Day 1. The set featured a special appearance by his good friend Mr. Abloh.
Highsnobiety’s Jeff Carvalho and Barneys’ Jackie Kim sat down with Preston for an exclusive interview to discuss his limited collection, the many design inspirations for “24 Hour Psycho,” meeting Warren Buffett, and his personal definition to the term “streetwear.” Watch the full interview above.
