Six looks centred on the urban nature of New York City made up the Streets of New York Collection, by Uros Mikic of Kinky Curly Straight. Uros drew from his recent trip to The Big Apple to create six men’s looks based on different iconic areas in New York.
“I love the variety of cultures, fashion and people roaming the streets, and in the same sense loved the individuality of each person I met,” said Uros. “That is what I wanted to bring to my collection – the original, the individual, the ‘standing out from the crowd’ style of a man.”
The use of texture and form, sharp geometrical shapes, clean lines and other unique features were employed to create looks entitled Long Beach, SoHo, Bronx, East Side, Harlem and The Village. Barbering techniques such as fading, classic quiffs, broken down waves, afro elements, intricately shaped braids and other styles were used to create looks that showcased the essence of these areas.
United by that definitive sense of New York City cool, these looks are variously edgy, dapper and laid back as necessary – showcasing the diverse melting pot that is the big city, in all its glory.
