I recently had the opportunity to be apart of a project composed of digital illustrations, created by up and coming illustrator/artist by the name of Ivan Kasaj. This was my first time working with someone who lives outside of the United States so I wanted to know a little bit more about him and his journey. The Trnava, Slovakia native Ivan Kasaj, is a freelance illustrator who likes to focus on men’s fashion, and ultimately turned his passion into a job.
When roaming the streets, there are particular images I want to capture. On this particular day I noticed how many people incorporated fatigue into their look, hence inspiring me to dedicate a post to this pattern. Being that army fatigue is at an all time high right now in the the fashion industry, It doesn’t take a fashion Guru to notice the amount of merchandise being made in this traditional pattern. - K.R.T.
Recently I debuted the K.R.T. Limited Edition “KING” hoodie in Black, and after receiving so many great reviews, why not take it a step further? I present to you the K.R.T. (Gray) Limited Edition “KING” Hoodie. Now available for purchase at the online store HERE.
I chose the army fatigue cargo pant as an “essential” simply because of it’s versatility and standard. This may also be the reason why this pattern is being used now more than ever in the fashion industry. People are starting to realize that fatigue is the new black, offering a unique pop when needed. While at the same time providing a neutral balance to pop color. This trend has influenced many brands to produce merchandise such as boots, shoes, bags, ties or anything they can think of, with this disruptive pattern material.
The variety of food venues in the Philadelphia allows me to dine at various restaurants and cafes. I enjoy trying new healthy entrees. One place in particular I like to eat at is Soy Cafe. Located in the Northern Libs section of Philadelphia at 630 N. 2nd Street, Soy Cafe offers salads, sandwiches, smoothies and much more. Providing great vegetarian
