The Dropcast #101: WHAT’S THE BUDGET?! feat. Josh Kissi

Highsnobiety Podcasts

Joshua Kissi is the creative director and photographer who picked up a camera at the age of seventeen. He’s the co-founder of Street Etiquette, known for their documentation of men’s style with a focus on black men. He joins The Dropcast this week to talk about his ongoing mission of empowering creatives through his latest ventures including TONL.Joshua joins hosts Jian DeLeon and Noah Thomas in a moment of appreciation for the new Air Max 95 “De Lo Mío.” The quick hits continue with Aimé Leon Dore’s color-blocked New Balance 827s which will have Jian dressing up as both a Chinatown grandma and an ALD model. While these are the sneakers that will get people scrambling, Supreme’s Nike Air Force 1s will be as accessible as sneakers can get. The shoes will essentially be their version of the CDG Play Converses — relatively affordable sneakers where the supply meets demand (3:49). Paris Fashion Week saw the debut of Virgil’s Arc’teryx collection along with new off white-colored Off-White Air Jordan 4s (6:52). In other news, many people don’t quite realize that Virgil’s brand is another name for crack (9:26). Speaking about layers of meaning, Balenciaga’s FW20 show brought a new end-of-the-world aesthetic to the runway by addressing climate change and rising sea levels (9:36). Last Friday, YEEZY Season 8’s surprise PFW presentation showcased polarizing but nonetheless Noah-verified shoes (10:55). Unfortunately, Tokyo Fashion Week which was next on the lineup has been hit with a precautionary coronavirus cancellation. While Milan Fashion Week reached an early conclusion due to an outbreak, fashion weeks in Shanghai, Beijing, and Seoul have all been either postponed or canceled (13:53). The cast notes the essential need to stay hygienic and be aware of unwarranted racism particularly in diverse regions like Jackson Heights where Joshua calls home.With International Women’s Day coming up, the hosts give shout outs to the women in their lives including those at Highsnob (16:25). Their appreciation and best wishes are extended to Megan Thee Stallion who’s going through trouble with her music label 1501 Ent. after Roc Nation encouraged her to renegotiate her contract.This episode’s Question of the Week (QOTW) asked “How do you grow to have a lucrative career as a photographer?” (18:11). The Dropcast listeners called in with a series of inquiries that asked Joshua to reflect back on his own career by making the important distinction between celebrity photographers and photographers who photograph celebrities and commenting on smiling with your eyes.The next QOTW which will be posted on Highsnobiety’s Instagram so make sure to leave a voicemail on The Dropcast hotline at 833-HIGHSNOB (833-444-4766) for a chance to be featured in a future episode.Relevant Links:New ALD New Balances Supreme’s New Nike Air Force 1s Will Never Sell OutVirgil Abloh Debuts New Off-White™ x Air Jordan 4Demna Gvasalia Outdoes Himself With Freaky Balenciaga FW20 Water Toe ShoeYEEZY Season 8 Footwear Is Kanye at His Experimental BestTokyo Fashion Week Canceled Due to Coronavirus OutbreakWhy Are so Many Teens on TikTok Obsessed With These Metabolism Drops?Megan Thee Stallion Says Her Label Won’t Let Her Drop New Music Learn more about your ad choices.
