As an alumnus of the repositories of streetwear that are the HYPEBEAST forums, Phillip T. Annand’s story begins unassumingly. Captaining fledgling projects The Madbury Club and The Award Tour in his early years while attending New Jersey’s Rutgers University, Annand was gifted with a coupling of practical experience and the enduring viewport of a student that swiftly propelled him ahead of most his age. Fabricating original platforms that not only express a compelling opinion but effectively sustain imaginative and inspiring dialogue for readers, Annand has ultimately diffused through a blog landscape heavily saturated with content. While his loftier accomplishments in recent years include curating work for Nike and Timberland as well as maintaining responsibility for Lil B’s fixation on white vans, Annand has been occupying his time lately touring with and providing spiritual consultation for colleagues Flatbush Zombies. Deciding on several comforts of home for his Essentials including Ricola lozenges and ginger tea, Phillip also shouts out one of our favorite floral patterns this season from Moncler, paired with a low-key colorway in New Balance’s 998 model.
