Style Profile… Bruce Pask Current job? Men’s Fashion Director at T Magazine. First job? I was a Newsie in Arizona– I delivered the Yuma Daily Sun (get it?!) First ‘major’ purchase? A Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date watch– I bought it when I was hired at Cargo Magazine. Do you collect anything in particular? I’ve saved a Playbill from every Broadway show that I’ve seen since moving to New York over 20 years ago. What are your wardrobe staples? I always have a pair of Levi’s 501’s in rotation. Clark’s Desert Boots have been a part of my wardrobe long before they became the go to footwear choice of Williamsburg. Favorite shops? Dries Van Noten’s Het Modepaleis in Antwerp is my Mecca. I’d also like to go to Lane Crawford in Hong Kong, I’ve never been! Most stylish movie? Gattaca. Daily reads? I love The New Yorker and am a huge fan of Adam Rapoport’s new incarnation of Bon Appetit. Drink of choice? I’m a big beer fan. Most visually inspiring place you’ve been? What do you wear when travelling? Shoe trees? Just shoe bags, no trees.

Style Profile…Ni’ma Ford First job? It was actually at Abercrombie! I learned how to style outfits for customers. Thankfully, when my interest in that store died my passion for styling lived on. Now I’m a fashion stylist. What’s the most daring thing you’ve ever worn? I wore a black garbage bag as a head wrap once. Which part of your look have you experimented with recently? My hair is pretty fun. Next I think i’ll dye the front green and the back pink, maybe a streak of blue. Style icon? I would say early Lisa Bonet, she was so funky. She was fearless with everything; her blazers and brooches, the way she tied her hair… even her makeup colors! How does your upbringing reflect in your style today? My mother and grandmother were very stylish women. My grandmother’s vintage watch doubles as a bracelet with two bands of African beads and a soft gold face. Where else do you find unique pieces? There’s a church in Westchester that opens up the first Saturday of each month for flea market heaven. When do you dress your best?
