Rank #1: Daniel Arsham

Podcast cover
Read more

Daniel Arsham is a prolific artist who blurs the lines between art, architecture and fashion. From creating eroded casts of contemporary objects to designing dystopian future spaces under his architecture firm, Snarkitecture, Arsham is renowned for his relentless experimentation of shape and form across diverse genres of work.

His artistic worldview is what separates him from his fellow contemporaries, ushering an indefinable world filled with Future Relics that blend the past, present and future. Straddling this concept of complex futurism is what has transformed Daniel Arsham into one of today’s most influential, interdisciplinary artists.

In recent years, he's collaborated with KITH, Dior, Porsche, COS, Pokémon and many more brands, further pushing his work into a complex and multi-dimensional space where his art has reached audiences worldwide. In this episode, we dive into the mind of this complex artist and discover Arsham's central theme recurring through his artwork—the ethos of being able to float in time. 

He also discusses his three entities: Snarkitecture, Editions and his art production studio and how more than just being an artist, Arsham is a full on business man, operating many hats.

Rank #8: Kerby Jean-Raymond of Pyer Moss

Podcast cover
Read more

Kerby Jean-Raymond is the Founder of Pyer Moss and Artistic Director of Reebok Studies. Merging luxe and streetwear, Pyer Moss is the mens-and womenswear label changing the fashion industry by storm. Since 2013, Pyer Moss has had an impenetrable force gaining favor from notable celebrities, winning the CFDA Fashion Fund Prize, being named Forbes 30 under 30 and Times Next 100 List and much more. Despite his wild success, Kerby admits that his journey was riddled with failed investor relationships, battles of negotiating power, difficulties finding proper factories and more. Through it all what remained constant was his fervent passion for good design and a natural eye. 

In recent years, Pyer Moss has caught widespread attention in its politically active runway shows and seasonal campaigns portraying overlooked minority groups in America. In this episode the designer stresses that the "fashion formula" never worked for him, but harnessing the energy of “politics, societal conventions and music”—all things that made his life, was what found him to feel personal freedom.  In this episode, he tells it all from his early days as a kid all the way to showing his Pyer Moss Collection III at the King's Theatre in his hometown of Flatbush, Brooklyn.

Much of the early A$AP Worldwide gear was Mike’s work, too.
