On this week’s Dropcast, hosts Jeff Carvalho, Noah Thomas, and Jian DeLeon are joined by music artist Asukal, one of the under the radar musicians we’ve recently highlighted, and digital fashion editor Alec Leach. The big topics of the week include Virgil Abloh’s OFF-WHITE x Converse Chuck Taylor, the last of “The Ten” pack to be released, Childish Gambino’s tour de force of a music video: “This Is America,” and a ton of discussion around the Met Gala.
This year’s theme was “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination,” and in addition to talking about the best and worst dressed attendees, Asukal also shares her own opinion on the question we asked our audience: “What place does faith have in fashion?” Of course, you guys weighed in with some excellent commentary, and we also listen to a few voicemails weighing in on the topic.
Another one of the hottest releases of the week is Supreme’s collaboration with Fox Racing. The lookbook premiered on Monday and was shot by photographer Gogy Esparza, also the lens behind our recent Highsnobiety Japan tee collection lookbook. We talk about the significance of Fox Racing and the 12 O’Clock Boyz of Baltimore.
