Phew! Afropunk Brooklyn is really everything–music, DJs, activism, corporate sponsorship, open-minded viiibes, black oneness, and of course tons of style. And while the combo Bohemian/Afro-centric dashiki look dominated, we saw plenty of punk and music-inspired looks, good ole city center streetstyle and yes, because this is New York City, after all, even high fashion lewks, with Gucci footwear spotted on multiple attendees.
From a beauty perspective, we saw the Laolu Senbajo-designed white body paint featured in Beyoncé’s “Sorry” video everywhere, but even more so a cornucopia of rainbow-colored hair, as expressed through a combo of box braids, locs, ‘fros and super-showy wigs with guys (thank you for helping to open that door, Yachty) getting in on the action, too.
