Can we introduce you to Ryann Holmes? 
 Khafra Co. Style Story 
  Most of you know Ryan from   Brooklyn Boihood  , but Ryan also does amazing work for the   Center for NuLeadership on Urban Solutions , and  MoCADA .   We could give you the full run down on how much we love Ryann, how many amazing things Ryann has done in the community, but … we really want to talk to you abut Ryann’s style.
  
So here goes.  Ryann’s style:  **WE LOVE IT** .
  Check Ryann talking about life and style below.     How would you describe your signature style?   “I like wearing comfy clothes that look fly. Mostly clothes my friends make. My style is also kinda punk. Other times its very casual, and more focused on tiny one-of-a-kind details.”    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?   
“I don’t put that much thought into what I’m wearing honestly. I wear what feels good. I wear things that look original. I just started to wear color, thats fun. I like to thrift, but I don’t shop often. When I like a piece I wear it over and over again. I might wear a similar outfit 3x in one week. But I’ll look fly tho:) For me, style is about individuality, emotion, and honesty. I try and reflect who I feel like on the inside. Sometimes thats kinda bummy.”      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?   “My SunSun pants!!! Custom made by my super talented friend Sun Sun in Toronto. They are literally the flyest and most comfy pants I’ve ever worn. I have like 6 pair. All diff patterns and colors.      Also, I feel kinda weird without a hat on. I almost always have one on. Its sort of like armor to me.“   What 3 things are you most looking forward to adding to your wardrobe this season?   “I’ve been having fun thrifting sweaters this year for winter. I’m also looking forward to new accessories.
      Especially beads and gold things. I want to be adorned like a prince this coming spring. Lastly, I’m on the hunt for some vintage frames. Great eyewear makes me feel good. ”   At Khafra Company, we think that all of our clients and customers are slightly-more-than-fierce. What does that mean to you?      “‘Slightly-more-than’ is kinda funny, LOL. I think folks are ‘all the way’ fierce in their own right. The more folks are themselves the more it translates. Or doesn’t. Bottom line is being yourself is awesome. Be inspired. Make everything your own. Thats the key. Wait. What was the question? LOL. jk.  Thanks Khafra!” 

  Speaking of being yourself … you can catch a bunch of bois being awesome in the   2015 bklyn boihood calendar. 
            The hard copies are sold out, but you can still get a digital copy if you order now!

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.
