Style Profile: Chris Aznar
Name: Chris Aznar: (@mr_aznar)
How would you describe your style?
My lifestyle reflects the way I dress, so I guess you could say my style is a balance between comfort, street wear and prep.
When getting dressed in the morning, where do you start building your outfit, and why?
I always start with my shoes, because for me, it sets the tone for the rest of the outfit. There's nothing more frustrating than putting together a dope outfit, and then realizing that you don't have the right shoes to tie it altogether.
Why is dressing well important to you?
The way I dress and present myself on the outside is an extension of my inner creative self. We live in a society where we're judged on first impressions, so I want to project my confidence and positive energy through the way that I dress.
What do you look for in a product?
Comfort. Character. Uniqueness. The backstory about the product; particularly on how or where it was made.
What city have you visited that has given you style inspiration?
New York City, definitely. There's more of an appreciation for fashion, and people are not afraid or ashamed to hail you down on the street to compliment your outfit. People in NYC are more expressive in the way that they dress, and their style is often an extension of their colourful personalities.
Name a piece of clothing that you could not live without.
Shoes. Take all of my clothes, but don't touch my shoes.
