We could go into how you should respect this man because he’s a law student/public defender/doer of all that is righteous and lovely … but, you’ll love Kingston Farady because … well … because the universe will allow you no other choice. Go forth. Get schooled.
How would you describe your signature style?
“I like to think of my signature style as a celebration of the energetic qualities I’m feeling in a moment. In that I invoke the Spirits I feel akin to emotionally and then weave my own creative expression into that. I’m a Thug, a Naturalist, an Intellect, a Liberated Soul, and a Man of the World; so I see my style as a collage of the people, places, moments, movements, and experiences that represent those identities to me. Right now, I’d tag Tupac Amaru Shakur, Slick Rick The Ruler, MGMT, Steel Pulse, old Harlem, and the natural world, as in Nature, to my choices in fashion.”
At Khafra Company, we want to dress our clients for every second of every day - for work or play. How do you decide what you’re wearing during the week?
“Well, I’m a boss by day, so weekdays are dedicated to oxfords, chukkas, loafers, suits, slacks, button downs, skinny ties, tie clips, etc.
I believe in dressing for the role you want to play, while maintaining your identity.
That means combining your personal flavor with the flavor of the world you are operating within.
For me, that means my chinos are slim fit and sky blue, and I’m going to rock worn caramel leather chukkas with them, a caramel belt with a gold clasp, and perhaps a lemon button down, with a skinny sporting tie that pulls all the colors together. That way, I can match cats in their black Monday suits, and still remember who I am in the boardroom. Otherwise, I dress completely based on mood.”
At Khafra Company, we take style super seriously. What items in your wardrobe can you absolutely not live without? Why? What makes them so special?
“Oh, man. I cannot live without my crystal chains at this point, sleeveless tops, a fresh pair of high tops, and indie snapbacks.
Those are my go-to articles that help remind me to always step through this world adorning the greatest gift I’ve been given, Life, with authenticity, Love, and Truth.
The crystal chains, of course, being at the top of the game because I’m a critter like that and believe they not only attract the Eye, but have a pendulum affect and energetic quality that maintains a critical clarity within my heart and mind.”
What 3 things are you most looking forward to adding to your wardrobe this season?
Hahaha .. To be perfectly honest:
some black leather pants
chic ass black leather half gloves, and
a few more au gold Pharaoh chains.
At Khafra Company, we think that all of our clients and customers are slightly-more-than-fierce. What does that mean to you?
More-than-fierce, to me, means You believe who You are; and not just who You are today, but who You were lifetimes ago and who You will be tomorrow.
It means, You are present, in every moment, and willing to show up for Life, as that can often be a very scary thing for people. More-than-fierce means I can be a brother wearing harem pants and cocaine white R.O.C. high-tops, and still get mad Love wherever I go because folks know that I give no fux and yet I give all the fux in the world (can I swear in this?).
Basically, more-than-fierce is pure, unadultered Love for Self, Others, and the Universal Divine. In fact, I was thinking your company’s name, “Khafra”, reps someone who embodied more-than-fierce, I mean, dude built the second largest pyramid of Giza, right?! Hahaha. Anyways, more-than-fierce is not being afraid to allow Your light to shine bright. MTF 4Life.
Well, we can’t really top that. So … let’s just take a moment …
