from the block - styled by b.hawk
bronx native and beacon's closet buyer, b. hawk makes his presence known with his larger than life style. we caught up with him on a walk around the city.
you're from the bronx. how has the city defined your style?
growing up in the bronx has inspired me a lot creatively. it's the birthplace of hip hop and has given me the edge i need to hustle around the busy streets of new york city. i have a few great plans up my sleeves but firstly, to put the bronx back on the map. it's a really beautiful place.
what do you outside of being a buyer beacon's?
it's been a pretty cool roller coaster ride these past 3 years. i've been working on my art blog called "pinnedXstitched," which shines a light on upcoming creatives. we've been featured a lot on AFROPUNK.com. i'm also focused on my music and being a brand ambassador for upcoming designers and t.v. projects.
your hair is amazing! it stirs up emotions in me. please tell us anything you want about it-your process, what you love about it, anything at all. please comment!
i cut my dreadlocks off in 2015 after having grown them for almost 5 years. since then i've been experimenting a lot with different hairstyles and looks i've always wanted to do. it's just another way of me expressing who i am at that moment.
