Meet Romeo. Nine years old.
Soon as I saw him, I knew he'd gotten into Back in the Days by Jamel Shabazz.
A seminal text!
I love Shabazz photographs.
New York style in the 80's.
I got a pair of vintage Japanese Tura aviators at Fabulous Fanny's downtown (best shop ever) to access this look. But my ma thought I was channelling Lois Lane... How could she not see what I was doing? So I've decided to tell everyone about Shabazz.
A modern shout-out to Shabazz.
Romeo even adopted my old tracktop despite the girl germs.
I salute him.
