Already a deft multi-tasker, Ibn Jasper juggles his responsibilities as Kanye West‘s personal barber plus a member of the creative design team behind DONDA, West’s fashion brand. So it wasn’t all that surprising Jasper found time to design his own footwear with Diamond Supply Co. A close friend of Nick Diamond, aka Nick Tershay, the founder of Diamond Supply Co. since he arrival at Los Angeles from Chicago, both men sought to add their interests in sneakers, skateboarding, and the finer things of life into the design. All trickled down into a moccasin-like silhouette, with finely embossed snake skin pattern on premium leather spread across a durable skateboarding cup sole. In completing the luxe factor, Jasper added a discreet zip access at the heel, tassels, wax laces, and gold accents for the finish.
Four colors in all, only 100 pairs per color will be available starting with the Diamond Blue and Grey edition at Diamond Supply Co.’s Fairfax store location tomorrow at 11 am. The Black and Red editions will follow on Noon, Sunday at RSVP Gallery in Chicago. Diamond Supply Co. will also drop a few pairs at its DiamondSupplyCo.com online store Noon tomorrow. As the perfect complement to the collection, Ibn Jasper designed 144 snapback caps with lambskin bill, plus matching DMND t-shirts and crewneck sweatshirt to mark the special occasion.
