Spotted at: 17th and Welton streets.
Profession: I'm a DJ and an entrepreneur.
Favorite film: Recently, I liked the Hunger Games new movie, Catching Fire.
2013 jam: Jay-Z's Magna Carter Holy Grail album and the song "Turn Up" by 2 Chainz featuring Cap 1.
Style inspirations/icons: I have lots of style inspirations. New York City for starters, because that's where I'm from. Also living in Las Vegas and L.A. briefly have influenced my style, which is laidback but professional as well.
Favorite color: Blue and green.
Favorite accessory: My Louis Vuitton backpack.
Style mantra: I must stay fresh always. I can't go out looking bummy.
Shops at: Everywhere. I shop at Cherry Creek, H&M on the 16th Street Mall, and Park Meadows. In Las Vegas I like to shop at the Forum Shops at Caesar's Palace. In L.A. the American Apparel is so much bigger than the one here, so I like to shop there.
This Louis Vuitton brown monogram printed backpack is a piece that Williams purchased in Miami. It is his favorite accessory, but he also has a Louis Vuitton portfolio and briefcase in his collection.
Style analysis: Street style is an indicator of an individual's personality -- and Williams succeeds in projecting a professional image with relaxed sensibilities. His graphic T-shirt and jeans are staples of casual menswear, but his selection of accessories add a refined elegance to this ensemble. The see-through watch, gray scarf, black dress-up shoes, and coveted Vuitton backpack all add depth and personality to this outfit. William's ability to shop all over the U.S. makes his look well-rounded and informed, but he retains his aesthetic of being laidback while still looking professional. The overall effect is effortless style.
When in doubt, Denver, allow your style to be effortless.
