Shop The_ONES Curated By Famed NYC Performance Artist Alok Vaid-Menon

 

 

Breaking though the gender binary, Brooklyn-based Alok Vaid-Menon (who uses they/them pronouns) defies stereotypes on the daily. An internationally renowned poet, performance artist, educator, and activist, they are known for their keen political wit, wildly original personal style, and the kind of rich, layered writing that makes you reread sentences to soak in the goodness whether they’re writing for Conde Nast’s new Them magazine, for MTV.com, or simply an Instagram caption. You might recognize them from their feature in the acclaimed HBO documentary, The Trans List (2016). Or maybe just from their fabulously over-the-top style—bold lipstick, Dynasty-era blazers, and patterned dresses—that challenges expectations of both gender and fashion.

Here are Alok’s ONES.

“I like pairing classic sneakers with flamboyant colors and prints,” says Alok. “There is something delightful about that collision of old and new, simple and extravagant.”
