Rome Castille – VII WINNERS
VII WINNERS Recording Artist Rome Castille is no new face for the brand, his collection with PSC has been a big hit and the collaboration between the brands continue. This multi-part Editorial takes a closer look at several individuals so as to discover what style is to them and why they do what they do.
The Recording Artist
The Recording Artist is among a dying breed. He writes, he sings, and he performs, but his talent is only a small part of the equation. He has motivation and dedication, but what is his X factor? He must become an instrument of style. His look and his personality flows as much as form and harmony. Beats are mixed together to make song as his wardrobe pieces come together as style. With all the elements of music and style together, the artist commands the stage. He performs and the audience responds, the excitement builds, and the endorphins rise. He records to produce audible art, his being is his marketing strategy. The recording artist is a hit.
The Denim Jacket
The roots of denim run deep in America. They are the symbol of all things opposite of the status quo. The denim jacket has been a staple of the working world since its beginnings in the late 1800’s. Known for its durability, the jacket has taken on a much more as an emblem of rebels and a signature amongst the pop artist. The breathable and lightweight nature allows for maximum ventilation, elevated performance, and protection from the elements for the urban gentleman. To don a denim jacket is to wear the cloak of badassness.
What is Style?
Style is self expression, the way a person dresses and carries themselves tells a lot about who they are even before words are spoken. Style is both an art and lifestyle.
Why do you do what you do?
What I do is an addiction, I can’t go a minute without having some kind of beat or rhyme in my head – it’s kinda crazy. I made a promise to my mother that I’d continue my dreams, and I’m set on completing that promise. My goal goes beyond the riches and fame – I would like to inspire foster youth, or youth for that matter to follow their dreams.
