Union recently had the opportunity to sit down with Sal Barbier for a photoshoot with some of the latest products available in-store as well as an impromptu interview quite lively in nature. The designer behind the SLB 23 shoe is styled with interesting and colorful pieces from NEIGHBORHOOD, COMME des GARCONS, FUCT and many more. Choice excerpts appear below while the entire interview can be read here.
What was the first thing you ate this morning?
Oatmeal. Not that stuff that comes in a packet… like real oatmeal I make from scratch.
What was the first thing you put on this morning?
Ummm… starts with boxer shorts, then I work my way up to Dickies pants. I wake right up and head to the garage usually to do some garage things.
Do you play the drums?
No, I play the guitar.
What do you think will be the last thing you eat tonight?
I eat the same thing all the time. I’m on a tapout diet plan. I’m on a mixed martial arts diet.
