Evan Mock

Evan Mock is no noob to the world of fashion. Known for his signature pink buzzcut and effortlessly cool skater style, Mock graced the A/W 2023 COS Atelier show with a flawless ensemble tailored for the autumn season.

His impeccable outfit consisted of a white crew neck T-shirt paired with classic blue jeans, evoking a timeless aesthetic. Evan elevated his look with a striped sweater, casually thrown on and elegantly tied around his neck.

To complete his ensemble, he opted for chunky loafers, effortlessly rounding off his clean and chic vibe. For another outing at NYFW 2023, Evans rocked a denim-on-denim look which, once again, stole the spotlight.

Lil Nas X

Lil Nas X closed the Coach runway show last year at NYFW, but this time around, the rapper sat in the front row at the brand’s Spring/Summer 2024 show, held at Bryant Park. The ‘Industry Baby’ singer embraced an androgynous look that was giving us style and rebellion. He donned a striking white cropped blazer jacket which he artfully paired with a matching straight-fit skirt. Beneath the jacket, a black turtleneck added depth and contrast to his ensemble, showcasing his penchant for blending the classic with the contemporary.
