What is common between Gen Z and millennials? It is indeed their unfazed love for streetwear and sneakers. For fashion influencer and creative director Santino LoConte luxury streetwear is a passion. LoConte admits that he has been lucky to have developed deep networks within sneaker and streetwear inroads of the global fashion market.

LoConte’s opinion on sneakers and streetwear is considered noteworthy in the fashion circuits. In recent times, events happening within the proponent’s physical store and brand have attracted the attention of Forbes, WWD, Hypebeast, Highsnobiety, and other fashion press. One such development was the opening of a lifestyle brand and curated retail concept located at 807 Washington Street in New York City. In partnership with Korean giant Samsung, LoConte offers sneaker and streetwear lovers unique access to new releases such as Adidas’s YEEZY Boost 700 Wave Runner, Futurecraft 4D and Hu NMD “Holi Festival.”

LoConte puts a lot of trust in his product selections and relationships with consumers. Each product from Santino’s collections comes with a certificate of authenticity, so customers know they are getting the real deal.

Santino LoConte’s recognition as a fashion authority is based on not only concepts of sneaker and streetwear design, but also on matters of back-office support systems and industry contacts.

Perhaps the key area of creative strength for LoConte is the ability to bring together novel partnerships. His brand Reign in collaboration with Samsung is a sponsor of the New York Fashion Week. The team also works with notable industry players such as Balmain, Comme des Garçons, Thom Browne, Rick Owens, and Issey Miyake.

Much of LoConte’s flair for detail can be seen at Reign’s flagship retail store in New York which features an integrated sound and visual technology shopping system amongst a white-washed exposed brick wall, and Versailles parquet sky-light lit setting.

For over two decades, Skin Design Tattoos has been a leading name in the tattoo industry. Recently, it opened its flagship studio in the vibrant Soho district of New York City. The launch, sponsored by Philipp Plein and Villon, attracted a glamorous crowd, including top figures from New York’s entertainment and tattoo scenes. Notable attendees included comedian Shiggy, members of VH1’s “Black Ink Crew,” and renowned tattoo artist Keith Hernandez. Photographer Josh Sobel elegantly captured the event, which was coordinated by PR professionals Shawn Germain of Tomorrow’s Group and Johnny Donovan.

The studio’s design, featuring sleek lines and raw brick, provides an elegant backdrop for the intricate black and grey realism tattoos that Skin Design is famous for. This aesthetic is echoed in the collections of sponsor Philipp Plein, known for his use of stark lines and intense shading to add depth.

Robert Pho, CEO and Founder of Skin Design, shared his artistic vision at the event, describing his designs as “not just art; they are narratives of life’s stark contrasts, capturing tales of survival, redemption, and transformation.”

The studio is also known for its comprehensive apprenticeship program, where artists like Reena Pho, now a seasoned tattooist at Skin Design, hone their skills under Robert’s mentorship. Robert also hinted at future philanthropic efforts through a non-profit aimed at supporting aspiring artists who face financial constraints.

Since its inception, Robert Pho’s dedication has driven Skin Design Tattoos to international acclaim and a respected position in the tattoo world. The opening of the flagship studio at 285 Lafayette Street in New York is a testament to the brand’s enduring influence and innovation in tattoo artistry.
