Pop Style Pon The Parkway: Kalique and Jaden

st-vincent-stilt-walkers-4

Every Labor Day Monday, Caribbean swagger and New York style come together at the West Indian American Day Carnival (aka the “West Indian Day Parade” or “Brooklyn Carnival”) on Eastern Parkway in Brooklyn. We decided to bring our street style feature Pop Style out onto the Parkway this year, and the cast assembled did not disappoint, reflecting the mixture of national pride and personal style we’ve come to expect from this most visually stimulating of days. We’ll be sharing shots and stories from some of our favorite people we met popping style pon di parkway all day here.

Carnival Soundtrack: Skinny Fabulous + Kubiyashi’s Vincy Mas Anthems

Words by Jesse Serwer

Vincy Mas might not have the same international prestige as Trinidad Carnival, Crop Over or Spice Mas, but St. Vincent’s annual festival, which kicks off today before climaxing July 8, has been the source of some of the biggest soca in recent years. Much of that has been on account of Skinny Fabulous, who has been holding the torch for Vincy soca with tracks like “Head Bad,” “Monster” and Machel Montano collaboration “Duracell Plus” and a tough, dancehall-influenced style not unlike Trinidad’s Bunji Garlin (Skinny studied at UWI, and has worked with Jamaican producers Daseca and Truckback).
