The Dropcast #131: ANGELO BAQUE WANTS TO SEE BRANDS NURTURING BLACK & BROWN TALENT

The Dropcast

Awake NY founder and former Supreme brand director Angelo Baque joins us on this week's episode to discuss the hottest news in fashion. After providing his opinion on some of the biggest product reveals in recent days, he takes the time to delve into his brand and the fashion industry as a whole.Baque and host Noah Thomas begin the podcast by discussing a number of new sneakers, ranging from the Air Force 1 winter boot and adidas' mule creation, to Cactus Plant Flea Market's rhinestone Dunks. The two then touch on Gucci and The RealReal's recently-announced secondhand initiative, Matthew Williams' debut Givenchy collection, and artists collaborating outside of their realm.Next, Baque discusses giving deeper meaning to collaborations and drawing from things that inspire him personally. He speaks on how products should bring awareness, as well as being able to appeal to multiple markets and age demographics by knowing who you are as a brand and remaining honest and sincere in the work.A significant portion of the conversation is rightfully dedicated to brands needing to find consistency in nurturing black and brown talent. Donations have quickly become the trendy play, but without consistency, there will be no change in diversifying the industry.Relevant Links:NIKE'S NEW ALL-BLACK AF1 BOOT IS THE PERFECT WINTER HYBRIDSTUDIO FY7’S 992 COLLAB IS THE NEXT WE’LL BE SAD TO TAKE AN L ONTHESE ADIDAS CLOGS ARE FOR THOSE THAT CAN’T BRING THEMSELVES TO BUY CROCS IF PARIS HILTON WERE A SHOE, SHE'D BE THE CPFM X NIKE DUNK LOWGUCCI WANTS YOU TO STOP BUYING NEW GUCCITHE FIRST MATTHEW WILLIAMS COLLECTION AT GIVENCHY IS FINALLY UNLOCKEDBALENCIAGA'S SS21 COLLECTION IS A BIG POST-PANDEMIC MOODJ blavin x mcdonalds collab WE’VE ARRIVED AT THE ERA OF THE “INSOURCED COLLAB” Learn more about your ad choices.

NW3Radio

For the one year anniversary of NW3Radio, we were joined by Alex Wiley (one hour before he performed at SOBs), Angelo Baque, the Brand Director for the legendary Supreme clothing brand, and Bay Area's Iamsu!. We talked about Chicago, the Bay Area, the generation gap in New York City's scene, creativity, and what it means to be a rapper (especially in regards to freestyling). Plus, Iamsu! dropped a few bars for the people. More to come as NW3Radio enters year number 2!
