Looklyn: A kimono non-conformist
In this installment of our street style series, we meet Bouboulena, who serves serious looks with a less-serious outlook
Street style isn’t necessarily the same thing as “fashion.” It’s … more personal. It’s rooted in self, an outward expression of attitude, vibe, swag, panache, aspiration, time and place. In this semi-regular series called Looklyn, we hold a mirror up to the borough to show us how we dress now … and what it tells us about who we are.
Here, photographer Johnny Cirillo introduces us to Bouboulena, an “ageless” DJ, performance artist, yogi non-conformist, heading all the way up.
How you identify: As a person
Occupation: DJ performance artist/entrepreneur
Where are you heading?: All the way up!
Fashion inspo: From as simple a place as nature, to athleisure, to walking around the city and seeing what people wear that I think looks fun and inspiring to me at the time!
About the fit: I’m wearing a swimsuit top and a kimono because my favorite places to be are by the beach in the water or somewhere where I could lay in the sun (was at the park filming an ad before being spotted) and I’m wearing athleisure shorts and comfortable flip-flops. If it wasn’t the city I would be prefer to be barefooted!
About me: I would describe myself as a Yogi/non-conformist friendly loving and connected person.
Thoughts on life: It’s not that serious 🙂
