Meet Alexis Casson, creator of “The Peculiar Kind” Khafra Co. Style Story It’s been awhile since we’ve had a good style story! Lucky for us, we’re back with a fantastic one! Basic bio –> She currently lives in Brooklyn, NY, has a small Shih Tzu named Ellie Munkin Fat and can make a mean sweet potato pie. She wears many hats; Camera Operator, Editor, Photographer and she also dabbles in Graphic & Web design. And we absolutely love her!  And not just because she let us hang out with her for hours while trying on vintage fur. There’s really not enough that we could even say about Alexis to really let you all know just how much we love her around here. So … we begged and pleaded and she graced us with a few answers about her style. How would you describe your signature style? “Ya’ll, I don’t have style. My girlfriend says I dress like an asian woman. Is that PC? Probably not. But I do have a love for big coats and jackets that drape like kimonos and I live for mandarin collars, oversized tees, boyfriend/mom jeans and flatforms (I’m short).” At Khafra Company, we want to dress our clients for every moment of every day - for work or play. How do you decide what you’re wearing during the week? “My profession actually encourages relaxed attire.” “So I can pretty much wear what I want everyday. Usual day: docs/flatforms, vintage tee/sweatshirt and skinny rolled up jeans.” 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? “That’s hard. I’m really not attached to anything. WOW! I know one thing that’s not fashion related that I can’t live without and recently that’s been my leather medicine pouch and healing stones. If I had to pick though… I actually just splurged on two leather Jackets from Scotch & Soda and I honestly don’t know what I was wearing before I had those beauties in my life.”  What 3 things are you most looking forward to adding to your wardrobe this season? “I’d like to add more dresses and playsuits to my wardrobe. I plan on traveling to a lot of warm places and moving to the west coast. In my mind, any place where it’s warm calls for loose-fitting, one-piece flowing things. I’m so down for living a carefree black girl experience. ” At Khafra Company, we think that all of our clients and customers are slightly-more-than-fierce. What does that mean to you? “Great question. I guess it means that after all is said and done, we wear what we want. What makes us feel comfortable and confident at the same damn time. ” Check out a few pieces inspired by Alexis’ style on our Facebook page! And don’t forget to catch up on The Peculiar Kind! And while you’re at it, make sure to get familiar with Alexis’ body of work. Want more real style from real people? Check out more STYLE STORIES.

Khafra Co. Style Story

It’s been awhile since we’ve had a good style story! Lucky for us, we’re back with a fantastic one!

Basic bio –> She currently lives in Brooklyn, NY, has a small Shih Tzu named Ellie Munkin Fat and can make a mean sweet potato pie. She wears many hats; Camera Operator, Editor, Photographer and she also dabbles in Graphic & Web design.

And we absolutely love her! 

And not just because she let us hang out with her for hours while trying on vintage fur.

There’s really not enough that we could even say about Alexis to really let you all know just how much we love her around here. So … we begged and pleaded and she graced us with a few answers about her style.


How would you describe your signature style?

“Ya’ll, I don’t have style. My girlfriend says I dress like an asian woman. Is that PC? Probably not. But I do have a love for big coats and jackets that drape like kimonos and I live for mandarin collars, oversized tees, boyfriend/mom jeans and flatforms (I’m short).”
