To help reintroduce a capsule of vintage adidas footwear silhouettes in 2018, we set out to idetify people in the design and fashion fields to help us explore the idea of what “classic” means to them.
As part of this effort, we visited multi-faceted designer, stylist and artist Beth Birkett Gibbs in Los Angeles.
Beth splits her time as an in-demand stylist, a creative director at Union LA, and working on her own label, Bephie. We chatted with her about authenticity, the important of highlighting, supporting, and collaborating with creative people of color in her community, and having that indescribable style and confidence that could be defined as classic.
The film we mnade with Beth ran on i-D Magazine online and on Bephie and adidas social.
To culminate our project with Beth, She curated a photo and art exhibit at Band of Vices featuring imagery shot by her friend Onye Anyanwu, featuring POC women from her creative community in Los Angeles.
