Fervent View: Willyum Beck



A BIG congratulations to a longtime collaborator of mine, Willyum Beck. He has an interview with Portland Monthly's Eden Dawn about his styling on the Kanye West team for season 3 showing of the Adidas Yeezy line in NY fashion week.  We asked Willyum a few quick questions about his work and ideas on style so you can keep him on your radar for upcoming projects.


Q:  What do you do and how do you think you’re breaking the rules and expectations of stylists?  

A:  I’m a stylist and an art director and I feel like I always break the rules — probably because I always followed them growing up.  With fashion, I’m really interested in deconstructing looks using classical pieces.  And exaggerated proportions.  With my art, I try not to think too much about the rules or whether or not I’m following them.  


Q:  What’s your specific point-of-view?  

A:  The work should always be beautiful.  Everything else is subjective. 


Q:  What are your thoughts on style?  

A:  Style has little to do with clothes and everything to do with how you wear them.


Q:  What do you want the world to know?  

A:  Stop trying to understand art. I think it was Picasso who asked “why not try to understand the song of a singing bird?”. Explanation kills art. Just look at it, enjoy it (or don’t), and keep it moving.
