The name Sage Elsesser might not roll off your tongue just yet, but with friends like Supreme founder James Jebbia, skateboarding legend Jason Dill, and even Frank Ocean, that could all be about to change.
Elsesser, 20, is currently Supreme’s go-to guy for showcasing its latest pieces, studying fine art at the Pratt Institute, and just so happens to share a room with Earl Sweatshirt. Last year, he lent his voice to the last song of Frank Ocean’s 2016 album, Blonde. He’s arguably the epitome of a New York cool kid.
GQ magazine recently sat down with the “soon-to-be-everywhere” star to talk about the new Converse kicks he helped design (which you can see here,) how he got so stylish, and what he thinks about Supreme’s collab with Louis Vuitton.
Check out some choice quotes from the interview below.
Yeah, like, guys asking me, “So explain what having credits on Frank Ocean’s album is like?” Like, I didn’t do anything. Like, sure, I’m down, I’m a Frank Ocean collaborator. One time I told someone I wrote “Solo.” I told them I wrote that for him, and they were like, “Wow! No way!”
It’s cool, fuck yeah, Louis Vuitton. It’s another cool collaboration for Supreme, but I just don’t really care. There’s gonna be another one next year kids are gonna flip on.
I just think it’s corny. It just looks dumb, but it’s also cool that, like, Forever 21 is making Trasher, Paradis, and Fucking Awesome tees. Like, they want to be on our shit. But I also just see so many kids dressed like Sean Pablo now.
Now head over to GQ to read the full thing.
