A self-made man and entrepreneurial exemplar, David Ben David started Sprayground about two years ago in New York City. Since blowing up on the backs of influential wearers, Ben David and his brand now sit at the forefront of the backpack ‘revival’ of the past few years. Throughout his successes though, the School of Visual Arts graduate and designer keeps the same influences around – equal parts reminders of his past accomplishments as they are grounding ideas. The things he carries – cans of spray paint, a keychain mini-pack for fat caps, and notebooks littered with personal scrawling – all indicate a kind of urbane creativity, while other featured items showcase past collaborations with K-Swiss and other custom work. Model and longtime brand supporter Krista Ayne is also featured amongst the Essentials. Enjoy the above, and be sure to leave comments below.
