NYUnique: Yo Fu: A Mix of NYC and LA
“Afterwards he said, “One month no sucking, okay?" ... the same morning I flew to LA with bars in my nips, a little pain on the plane, but all was worth it.”
Maisha: Describe your style in a sentence or two.
Yo Fu: Street urban and random as hell–mix & match whatever clothing that’s not dirty (laughter). Some friends describe it as a mix of NYC and LA.
Maisha: Favorite stores and designers?
Yo Fu: I don’t care much about stores or designers, I like what I like. Also because I’m broke I can’t afford expensive stuff (laughter). I usually thrift and shop online (and make really random, impulsive, irresponsible decisions), and find brands or inspirations on Instagram.
Maisha: What’s the best thing in your closet right now?
Yo Fu: A new tearaway-sleeve red hoodie that I bought from the Korean brand Skoot 4.
Maisha: What according to you is one timeless style piece?
Yo Fu: Black combat boots
Maisha: What’s your biggest fashion pet peeve?
Yo Fu: Matching couples (aka britney & justin 2001 denim match)
Maisha: What’s the one item on your wish list?
Yo Fu: I’ve been wanting to get a pair of high top sneakers but am still waiting for something to catch my eye to make a move.
Maisha: Less or more?
Yo Fu: Less
Maisha: 90s grunge or 60s glam?
Yo Fu: 90s grunge
Maisha: You have really cool piercings, and I know you have an interesting story behind them!
Yo Fu: I got them done last summer and it was a really impulsive decision although I had been thinking of getting them for a while. What happened was, I was flying out early next morning so I was packing in my apartment and hanging out with my roommate, but being the easily distracted and bored procrastinator that I am, I didn’t want to pack at all. So I found myself a reason to stop packing—to get my nipples pierced at three in the morning. I have a high pain tolerance so piercing them was no problem at all, but my tits have never been felt in such an indifferent manner by a man (laughter). Afterwards he said, “One month no sucking, okay?" Anyways, the same morning I flew to LA with bars in my nips, a little pain on the plane, but all was worth it.
