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. Find out more at futureboston.com.
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."
