Get Seen » At Assemble! at Emerald Lounge

On September 12, culture vultures convened at the Revere Hotel's Emerald Lounge for the kickoff of the new Future Boston series Assemble!, which spotlights local innovators and burgeoning talents in art, design, music, and more. For the inaugural event, Gallery Basquiat and the Goodnight Initiative curated works by local artists of color amid the green glow of Emerald's swanky digs. The free series continues each Wednesday night at least through October 17. On the agenda: a collab between Yes.Oui.Si and NYC DJ Florencia Galarza (stopping in town en route to DJ Paris Fashion Week), a jewelry and sculpture showcase, an exhibit from the Sneaker Museum, and a blowout featuring the work of 100 Boston artists.

"Delicious," freelance art consultant

It takes a certain gravitas to pull off a man-bag, and Delicious had it in spades, which is why we had to ask him to share some style tips. "It's all found picks. Being a fashionista in Boston, you have to go everywhere and anywhere to find them," he said. To be clear, that's Fashionista with a capital F. "Two F's!" he amended.

Like any Fashionista worth both his F's, Delicious understands the merit of mixing high-end and low-end pieces. He scored the jacket from a street fair for $3. "For labels, I go to Barneys or Neiman's," he said. "But I like to mix and match. I like found objects, whether on the street or at Goodwill."

We dug that the scarf he was rocking belonged to his late mother. "I'm paying homage to her," he said. At the suggestion that the rest of his ensemble looked a bit Christmassy, he laughed, "Well, it's almost fall isn't it? So I'm ahead of the season. I'm a trendsetter."
