Growing up his mother inspired him to dress differently.

“My mom has really good style and always dressed in a unique way. She shopped at boutiques and wore very ‘80s clothes in the ‘80s that were very artistic, and sort of looked like Memphis-inspired outfits. She was always wearing cool stuff—spiked belts, fluorescent tights, and a lot of Norma Kamali clothes (which I found out later when I looked at the labels). So she always seemed to have style, and I’m sure that that inspired me a lot,” he says.
