Nate Dee

NATE DELINOIS (AKA NATE DEE), street artist and muralist

Quarantine essentials: I’ve turned to DJs doing live sets on social media, my music playlists, all books Malcolm Gladwell or fiction, and Netflix.

Style evolution during lockdown: Comfort is the priority, so let’s just say that my sweatpants collection has grown since stay-at-home orders were put in place.
Post-quarantine goals: I’d love to continue growing my recipe book. I love to dine out, but I have really come to understand the power of a recipe during this time.

Matthew Chevellard

MATTHEW CHEVALLARD, founder of Blu Scarpa and the Office

Essential wardrobe pieces: The level of comfort that a pair of Blu Scarpa La College loafers offers is amazing, so I always have a pair that’s for indoor use only.

Creative outlet: My three young sons and I have been preparing our fleet of Traxxas RC cars, building Hot Wheels tracks and putting together endless Lego creations.

Jerome Baker

JEROME BAKER, linebacker for the Miami Dolphins
