Devante “Vantethehippie” Jackson

25, Freelance artist

What are you wearing?

A rare St. Paul barber shop classic Grace & Mercy beanie, thrifted black hoodie, inherited black bomber jacket, Prime Eleven jeans, Nike Vapormax

Describe your style:

Class and comfort. I like real quality pieces, but only the comfortable joints.

What’s a trend that needs to end?

People wearing durags, but they aren’t working on waves. This must stop. If you don’t brush everyday, there is no reason to wear a durag.

If your style was a song what would it be?

Let it happen by Tame Impala. The bassline is so heavy, and my style is like a very heavy bass with a couple chill melodies.

My necklace. It’s been with me for about six years now. Longer than any relationship I’ve held.
