Style Profile - Luca Venezia aka Curses March 23, 2015 07:48
Luca Venezia aka Curses
Venezia's creative beginning began in his hometown of Brooklyn, New York. He is an electronic producer, DJ and founder of dance label Trouble & Bass and more recently his late night music collective Safer at Night.
Luca is always known to bring something different to the table and he has done just that with the latest label venture Safer at Night. Luca aka Curses alongside Total Fitness and Cranks have brought some deeper darker house and techno that will keep you going till sunrise.
Venezia's fashion style has evolved very much like his musical sound. His look similar to a modern day Johnny Cash is black from head to toe. You can spot him in a well-tailored Lagerfeld suit or sporting his Safer at Night bomber. Either way his look is always alluring and timeless.
We had the opportunity to ask Luca about his personal style and this is what he had to say;
Your hair is obviously on point, what's your favorite grooming product?
Thank you! It all began with Sweet Georgia Brown (the red tin), but sadly they are now out of business so I stick to the Mr. Ducktail brand. He is also my barber, and London's best fade hands down.
Your style has evolved very much like your sound in music. Is your style influenced by music?
The relationship between style and music play a very integral part in my life. The vibe of an artists aesthetic brings life to the story of the music and creates emotion.
What's the one wardrobe essential you can't live without?
It used to be my Jodorowsky inspired hat, but I have since retired that from the essential attire so I would have to go with classy shoes. Any black Saint Laurent patent or suede or vintage Stacey Adams.
How would you describe your personal style?
How long does it take you to get ready?
This incredible elongated blazer by Christian Poell
Favorite fashion city?
Michelle Lamy is other worldly. And she is married to Rick Owens.
Best fashion in a film?
I have always been excited by the violently beautiful outfits and makeup in Derek Jarman's 70's punk romantic, Jubilee.
I absolutely love what Hedi Slimane has been doing for Saint Laurent right now.
Get things tailored to fit you exactly how you want, and never wear too much of one designer all at once. Mix things up.
