In the DIY Issue 26 of ACCLAIM we chat to Kara Messina, the designer behind Y’OH, a London based street wear label that she says draws influences from skaters, vivid African prints, hip-hop and grime – and the music she has selected for her Music To Work To playlist is an extension of her killer style.
Kicking off with The Prodigy, "This song just about sums up my energy levels in the morning," she says, before playing some “blood pumping” UK grime and then the first cassette she ever bought - Snoop Dogg. On her choice of Nas her critique is design induced - “got mad love for his style. Nas was one of the best dressed rappers of the 90s.” Of the Chromatics, she says the video is all about “the beat, the clothes they wear, the moves… it’s kinda spellbinding.” Finishing off with Biggie/Lil’ Kim she says: “I though I’d save the best till last.”
