Ibn Jasper recently announced his foray into the fashion industry via Instagram stories. Widely known for being Kanye West‘s barber for over 20 years, Jasper expressed that he will start a luxury clothing line dubbed Stratica International. There’s even a newly-created IG account and website for the label.
“I’ve been hearing ‘that’s too expensive’ too many times when I’ve been submitting my designs to other companies,” wrote Jasper on the social media platform. “So, I’m just going to start my own thing so that I can make stuff as fresh as I want it to be.” If you’re wondering how fresh Jasper’s style is, well, just peep inside his closet that’s bursting with exclusive footwear from adidas, Vans, and of course, Yeezys.
Hours before the announcement, Jasper posted a photo showcasing his new collaborative skate shoe with Diamond Supply called the JASPER 2 Vulc. Check it out below and stay tuned for updates.
