ALIVE ǁ RYO FOR STEADY
Met through a mutual friend, we caught up with our new homie RYO KASAGI, designer, illustrator, and a recent UC Davis grad now living in Queens, to shoot this editorial piece for our S/S ’15 collection. In process, we decided to ask him a few things about himself and here’s what he had to say. This is RYO FOR STEADY.
CAL: Hey dude — so I know who you are but, in three words, who is RYO?
RYO: In three words? Curious…stubborn, and I’d say passionate.
CAL: Right now, what’s something you’re trying to overcome?
RYO: Myself? Haha. I kinda have like these certain perceptions and things I’ve placed on myself but, I realized that they’re like limitations. Like, why do I have to be that — that certain image of myself. I’m trying to disprove myself of that so I can expand my mind and grow.
CAL: Finally, you a udon guy or soba guy?
RYO: God! Depends, I like both but I’m craving udon. Had soba last week haha.
