Street Etiquette, a blog started by two of New York’s young and everyday fashion gurus Joshua Kissi and Travis Gumbs, has become one the most recognized blogs today. From their original vision, they have banded together a group of artists, poets, singers and musicians, all of whom are fashionable and culture savvy, to be apart of the Street Etiquette brand and movement.
Along with providing debonair examples of menswear and how to express yourself through different aspects of fashion, the individuals banded together and created Sartorial Sounds. A collaboration amongst lovers of fly threads and music who all sat down to make a cover to Andre 3000‘s “Take Off Your Cool.”
The intention was to ensure that not only were these guys and girl making their mark on the fashion world, but to state that everyone is an artist in their own right. The fusing of all of the elements of culture was amazing. A group of poets, singers and music lovers all sat down in the studio and created a track solely off of their love for their crafts and the positive energy that radiated throughout the room. Street Etiquette assembled these seven individuals to take part in this project, and the selection was perfect.
Artists Jessie Boykins III, Mara Hruby, Joekenneth Museau, Joshua Bennett, Theo Martins, Melo – X and Rinaldy Alvarez came together and made the magic happen. Over a two-day period they created nothing but great music that not only made a great collaboration, but also highlighted the talents of the artist as individuals who you should check out and listen to. Street Etiquette’s Sartorial Sounds edition is the epitome of black creativity and art. It warmed my heart and is inspiring to any aspiring artist wondering how they can fuse all of their ambitions into one beautiful project.
