How Kyle Luu and Solange worked on styling When I Get Home

Lockdown has given the style business time to mirror. As a New Yorker, what do you concentrate on the present state of the style scene?

“I go around New York City and 17-year-olds are wearing their friends’ designs or sporting eBay finds, they’re not buying high-end retail. I think luxury retail is changing and it’s very obvious here, in New York. We’ve had a lot of our bigger department stores close and unfortunately some of the smaller ones too, including [store that championed new designers] Opening Ceremony. I try to incorporate upcoming designers and students into every project — these are the designers thinking about the global climate [for fashion].”

Where can we see your work subsequent?

“I styled a project named The Show’s Over for the Schauspielhaus Zürich theatre in Switzerland, with filmmaker Wu Tsang and performance artist Tosh Basco. We worked on it just before lockdown started and co-ordinated remotely for two months, then I went to Switzerland to film for two weeks. It felt so different to editorial projects, it was a breath of fresh air.”

Five designers presently on Kyle Luu’s temper board:

Robert Wun

“I love that Robert’s work feels personal; his take on femininity, nature and his proportions are beautiful — he’s always ten steps ahead.”

Supriya Lele

“I instantly see how Supriya’s background and Indian heritage has influenced her work. Her eye for layering and including small details in her garments is unmatched.”

Gogo Graham

“It’s an honest reflection of her identity and her community. The pieces are all one-of-a-kind and not trend-led.”

Arturo Obegero

“We used Arturo in When I Get Home — I enjoy the balance between theatrical and minimal pieces. It’s unique.”

Final Loss

“Final Loss is a Canadian-based brand and they create full looks, much like a stylist. Their streetwear/avant-garde hybrid is exciting to watch.”
