Travis Scott


Musician, 28

Over the course of the past few years, Travis Scott transforme­d himself into a defining force behind streetwear’s merger with the luxury mainstream. (Want proof? Just look at how he mixes archival Raf Simons with Rick Owens sweatpants and sandals from the venerated Japanese brand Visvim.) None of it should work, but it does—in part because Scott is a global superstar, sure, but mostly because he has an intuitive grasp of the connective threads between the pieces. Remember: The sundry items in your wardrobe can still sing together in beautiful harmony out and about in the real world, no matter how little they appear to have in common hanging in your closet.
