Hey there SP readers! We have been busy, busy bees over here at SPHQ and left you all out in the cold–our apologies! Our newest post today comes from our Men’s Fashion Contributor (and awesome resident photographer) Chuck Olu-Alabi. He’s giving you his top 5 fashionable folks to follow on Instagram. Enjoy!
What’s good people, Chuck here, I know it’s been a while. I’ve been a bit busy with work and school, but I’m more determined to keep you guys and ladies coming back for more.
The fall season is here and you know what that means, it’s the best season of the year (fashion-wise) in my opinion. I always feel that people show out more during the fall in terms of how they dress and in looks they put together.
Since Instagram is all the rage these days I decided to feature my top 5 favorite fashionable people to follow on Instagram. I hope I hip you to some new people to check out:
1.) Ronnie Fieg (@Ronnifieg)
Ronnie Fieg is a designer, collaborator and lover of shoes. At the age of 27 he has already built a repertoire in the fashion industry. Ronnie has put together over 50 footwear collaborations and he’s definitely creating a trend for the future. His Instagram is full of beautiful shoes and exclusive designs that you don’t see everyday.
2.) Joe (@Joefreshgoods)
Joe has always been a favorite designer of mine, from his work with Leaders1354 and the work from his own streetwear companies (Vita Morte and DopeBoyMagic.) Joe’s Instagram chronicles his everyday life of design, the Chicago scene and much more.
3.) Tobi Babajide (@Herds_Fathers)
Tobi is a fellow Nigerian and resides in Newark, New Jersey. He is co-founder of leather accessory company Herds of the Father. His Instagram shows off his unique sense of fashion and the designs and products from his company.
4.) Brandon Rials (@BLRDSGN)
Brandon is a graphic design artist from Chicago. He also has a new clothing line that he’s been designing called NNFW (New Ninja of the Free World). The main reason I follow him is because he has an eye for creativity and his love for cars and design.
5.) Ty (@Regularolty)
Ty is known for his blog (RegularOlTy.com) and the many 100s of pairs of shoes that he has. Originally from Cincinnati, he now resides in Chicago. His Instagram is full of pics of the many different shoes that he wears daily. If you’re a fan of dope kicks, Ty is definitely the guy to follow for a constant fix.
Well folks those are my picks. Who are your favorite fashionable people to follow on Instagram? Let me know in the comments.
And of course don’t forget to follow myself (@chuckstr) and Aramide (@thesassypeach) on Instagram as well!
