thedrop@barneys brought in all walks of streetwear life. From casual shoppers, to fans trying to cop exclusive drops, to many designers, were all in attendance creating a social hub that blurred the lines of streetwear culture and the high-end retail marketplace into one. We partnered up with Barneys for the two-day shopping event that saw the release of 30 exclusive capsule collections from labels like OFF-WHITE, 424, Fear of God, and more.

Tracey Mills's career path, like many successful creatives, isn't a straight line, but a winding road characterized by many different stops. That includes putting in time designing for on-trend early-2000s labels like Von Dutch and Ed Hardy, and then further developing his craft under Kanye West.

One of his early collections was a line of comfortable knitwear with experimental silhouettes called VENUSxMARS, and he carries that space theme into his new label, Visitor On Earth. With an eye towards empowering underserved communities and sustainable manufacturing, Mills, whose Instagram is @godsmessenger, also credits his faith and passion in his vision as key parts to his success.

At thedrop@barneys, Visitor On Earth dropped some exclusive product, including a velour tracksuit for women (as worn by co-host Jackie Kim), and some cozy collaborations with Russell Athletic. He also sat on a panel with HS managing director Jeff Carvalho about women in streetwear, which you can watch below:

Highsnobiety’s Jeff Carvalho and Barneys’ Jackie Kim spoke with Mills about his storied history as a designer, working with people like Kanye West, and the importance of having a strong vision and seeing it through. Watch it above.

For more exclusive interviews at thedrop@barneys, watch us sit down with Samuel Ross of A-COLD-WALL*.
