Buffalo Soldier

Images + Post By: | September 7, 20125 Comments

Some think Kanye was the first man to rock a leather skirt. Or that a man in vintage cropped trousers, a designer suit jacket and Doc Martens was some 21st century hipster ish. Well they’re sadly mistaken. Ray Petri, fashion stylist and creator of the Buffalo fashion house, was the first to do it.

More after the jump.

There are people out there who credit Ray Petri with introducing street fashion into the mainstream. Before it was cool to mix-and-match designer and thrifted, there was Ray. He turned away from the appeal of high fashion labels and focused more on the fashion trends of the everyday Joe. Drawing inspiration from Britain’s post-punk 1980s culture, Ray had a gift for pairing designer pieces (because of the cut/style, not the name) with underwear, vintage finds, sportswear and combat boots. He often chose black women and mixed race men as models which was something no one had done before.

Today, Buffalo style is alive and well from fashion week runways to the concrete sidewalks. Linda Evangelista’s August spread for Interview Russia had a Buffalo feel to it. Y’all, this ain’t nothing new.
