Now more than ever, streetwear is influencing the fashion world — and women have embraced the trend wholeheartedly. Although cult-favorite women's brands like Dimepiece really get what we're looking for — more fitted versions of men's pieces — some style stars like Kylie Jenner beeline straight to the source, which is why this new streetwear-focused startup isn't just for the boys.
Curateurs is a fashion and lifestyle site founded by some very heavy hitters: KarmaLoop founder Greg Selkoe, UpscaleHype founders Allen and Kyle Onyia, 10-year Apple vet Cedric J. Rogers, and tech wiz Dr. Paul Judge. The team's first three "Curateurs" are designer Jeff Staple, rapstar A$AP Ferg, and Grammy Award-winning music producer, Ryan Leslie, and fans are invited to shop their closets here in addition to learning more about their style vibes. (You can also pay $15,000 to have A$AP Ferg paint you a custom masterpiece.)
"Everyone wants to know what's cool," Dr. Judge explains. "Curateurs showcases a range of cool from high-end pieces that you might find at Sotheby's such as Ryan Leslie's grand piano to streetwear like Jeff Staple's Staple Pigeon brand."
