What is the common ground between Streetwear culture and ice Hockey? None?
Can't be more wrong! Let me introduce you to this 25 years old Austrian prodigy named Clemens Kuchinka: With almost 89,000 followers on Instagram and a name forged in the Hockey team of EC Kitzbühel, Clemens also has time to develop his company SNKREMPIRE, one of the reference for sneakers and streetwear new drops. With a curriculum like this, I was wondering if Clemens even had a weakness (yes, yes, everyone has, I know...), so I decided to ask him directly a few questions to find out.
So Clemens, tell us who you are -the person, not necessarily the blogger-?
(Sight) Good question! I would say a normal guy who loves his sport ice Hockey, and loves to takes photos not only streetwear stuff also normal stuff like landscape ...
Your biggest influences -anything from a movie to your parents-?
Back to Streetwear🔥 What are some timeless clothes that will always work?
Air Max 1, simple normally jeans, The North Face jackets.
What styles do you see coming back in style?
Let's take a risky bet; I would say stuff like Ed Hardy, maybe.
What’s the future of Streetwear?
Well, there are too many different style coming out every week, but I really can’t figure out which one is the future!
From what I see, not only in Streetwear, but how science fiction is catching at a fast-paced our ever-changing world, I think some future stuff like the self-laces-stuff from Nike or some Adidas futurecraft soles, and also some high-tech clothing!
What would you have done differently if you knew then what you know now?
Maybe don’t buy so much useless clothes and shoes 😂😂😂.
What’s the best advice you ever received?
You always should do what makes you happy and go where you have a lot of fun.
What’s your best advice for handling criticism?
Don't listen to it.
Your favorite ice cream?
