Ever since I was young I've loved collecting things. My first pair of Jordan 1 Mid Chicagos back in 2020 definitely spiked my love for sneakers. Back then, I was definitely growing and evolving into my own style and the realisation that shoes can have such an impact on an outfit definitely triggered my passion to wanting more and more.
Customization and collaboration is definitely significant moment of sneaker culture. What resonates with me is the ability to express yourself through art within sneakers which is a leading concept in fashion.

Balenciaga x Vetements could be total fire.
Virgil Abloh is one of my favourite creative designers. His work with Louis Vuitton and each one of his runways is so inspiring and captivating. Definitely a leading designer in our generation. May his success inspire and carry on!
Balenciaga also hits differently and resonates with my more 'edgy' style that I had going on.
I know some say it's kinda basic, but I do have a thing for chunky shoes and can already vision the fire fits I'll put together.
I do love materialistic things. Bags are also such an essential accessory to fits that can completely change the vibe.
I cherish my Prada Re-edition 2005 bag, I take that almost everywhere with me. Also my Louis Vuitton Alma BB handbag is a classic treasured item gifted to me that I adore.
