/me. Hal’e. Qubic!
Ben always said I was that ‘f*cking weird kid’ that always looked at this one jacket at Quarters Boutique. A black and white polka dot jacket with leopard down the sides by Kazuki Kurashi for adidas ObyO. The jacket is now 3, maybe 4 years old and I still regret not purchasing it (not as if I had the money).
The day I decided ‘yeah, I want to work there’ was the day I lined up for a good 9 hours for the release of the Nike x KW Air Yeezy back in ’09. It was cold, it was shitty.. I had no one to talk to and for some reason the weather was not our friend. I was one of the lucky 30 to get a pair that day. No easy feat.. lost my ticket stub somewhere in my wallet/pockets/bag and frantically searched for it infront of a couple hundred people all itching to kick me aside so they could have their shot at the shoes. (There were Gold bags back then.. running home, I felt like I had a bullseye on my head waiting to get jumped).
A year and 8 days passed before I started my first day there, exactly 672 days ago (Sian took my cv. Thank’s Sian!). To begin I started out on the floor then slowly moved out back to help design on some dream of the greatest projects every designer wishes they could get their hands on. I’ve grown up a lot in the past 2 years.. so much has changed. I can definitely call Qubic my second home, and everyone in there my second family. Soon Qubic will be happily changing hands while Frank and Ivy move on to bigger and better things (world domination), giving myself and Hal’e a chance to step up and continue the legacy that we call Home.
Below are a couple of the projects I’ve been a part of these past 2 years.. have a look-see.
Ps. Tomorrow and Saturday we’re on sale.. drop by. (I’m also sick. So don’t come near me.)
