NYFW: DJ/Producer BRENMAR's Menswear Must-Haves for Fall
It may still be warm in New York, but the Chicago native already has his eye on winter staples.
After releasing his debut EP "Award" via Fool's Gold in January and dropping the insanely infectious collab with Jersey Club Queen UNiiQU3 “Hula Hoop” in July, DJ/producer and Chicago native BRENMAR — real name Bill Salas — is setting his sights on the fashion world. Pret-a-Reporter caught up with Salas ahead of his NYFW sets this week, which includes the VFILES After Party (alongside A-Trak and Speakerfoxxx on Sept. 9) as well as the Pyer Moss and Refinery29 fetes (Sept. 10).
"NYFW can be a really stressful time for everyone involved behind the scenes so my job is to come in and make sure people have fun and release all that pent up stress and energy,” Salas said. “You want all that hard work to really amount to something and hip-hop is all about being bigger than yourself and your surroundings, so what better way to celebrate your show by balling out afterwards?”
To help mint his status as a “one-to-watch" on the fashion circuit, Salas shared his men’s must-haves for fall, exclusively with Pret-a-Reporter:
“Pyer Moss is making some of the best luxury sportswear out right now. The silhouettes are clean and sophisticated, while still being comfortable.”
“Talk about staying warm in style! The combo you get when fashion and function collide.”
“Vintage clothing given a new life via hand embroidery and embellishments. One of a kind pieces that subtly elevate a chill outfit.”
“Young label out of Paris making some unique pieces inspired by modern day tribes and subcultures. Their prints are forward and relevant.”
“Sandro is my go-to for classics and staples.”
