i’m not gonna make a long drawn out wordy post like i usually do... so long story short this makes me really happy!
@mmmmylipshurt galavanting around in the @phlemuns_nonbasics l/s backless tee & #PHLEMUNS lightweight denim popcorn bloomers 🤳🏾 by @marcmchehade * FIRST ROUND OF BACKLESS TEES SHIPPING WEDNESDAY* -as a small independent brand backed by a minimal team i, James, am still very involved in the day to day functioning of the business & sometimes life just happens disrupting the process. don’t forget that the world keeps moving outside the depths of Instagram & you never know what someone might be going through in their day to day life. wishing everyone out there a peace & calm to their week in this chaotic wild wild west of a world!
“NEON LIGHTS celebrates and empowers the malleable black body as the leader of infinite variations” @blaqdemarco & @codyofthealgos__ went above and beyond with the choreography & score of this piece! i couldn’t be more happy with the collaborative efforts of love and creativity put into this presentation- these garments were meant to embody movement whether that be their physical functionality or their theoretical existence through the chaotic clash of prints and color. all forces involved enhanced one another equally to create something truly special in my eyes. big big thanks to @bj_mims @jahannablunt @lorenzoedwards__ @tallblackandbeautiful you all became my superheroes!
still on such a major high from the Power Dressing show this weekend! felt so amazing to come together & see so many different points of expression under one roof with such a dynamic group of people. thanks @thirdmagazine @murmurs.la @gabrielledatau @jiromaestu for involving #PHLEMUNS & lending me an opportunity to be physically present with my POV!

PHLEMUNS by @gregory_vaughan_ ✔️
🚨BACKLESS TEE ALERT❗️ i first designed the backless tee back in 2015 for my SS16 collection & was surprised no one took much notice to it. sometimes when designing u build relationships with certain pieces & this was one i knew i wanted people to see & become a signature part in the DNA of the brand. with the release of @phlemuns_nonbasics it finally lent the opportunity to re-introduce it & give it its proper shine... as suspected it’s become the most desired piece from the world of #PHLEMUNS & is now available in NEW STYLES, COLORS, & SIZES [XS-2XL] 🗣shop the backless tee now @ PHLEMUNS.com!!

if ur not able to go through life laughing at urself then...
OK @SANAM & i don’t have the lengthiest of friendships but once that bud blossomed the growth of our relationship was rapid & has progressed into something that holds such a special place in my life. when she asked to do a feature on me for @SSENSE i freaked & immediately knew it would be my favorite interview thus far in my career! we sat down to ramble about collecting, community, wigs, & what it’s like to feel like an outcast [as i got to style myself in some of my favorite brands in front of one of my favorite photograper @dritch lens & get my hair braided by one of my favorite Angelino’s @ladysoulfly at my studio]. hope u all read the article & enjoy it as much as i enjoyed this shared experience! https://ssen.se/JamesFlemonsOfPhlemuns
🧩 in between projects i have to carve out time to make personal pieces for myself in hopes of maintaining my sanity ☁️
