Kerwin Frost: ​“I’m just trying to catch the next wave”

“People in Harlem always did have a different outlook on doing things,” says street style icon, talk show host and adidas’s newest ​“creator”, Kerwin Frost. A man whose sense of style was formed on the streets of his New York borough, and one of the fashion industry’s most unusual and in-demand creatives, the campaign with the sportswear giant features Kerwin modelling as a Yeti, an alien and the Hunchback of Notre Dame, with the outfits all stamped with the iconic three stripes.

Kerwin Frost Thinks TikTok Is The Easiest Internet Rabbit Hole, Too

To celebrate the second season of Kerwin Frost Talks, the show host takes on the NYLON 19. Kerwin Frost is back with a new season of his laidback talk show Kerwin Frost Talks. The Harlem-born creative multi-hyphenate may be known for his viral man-the-on-street interviews — like those he'd done at the Kardashian-Jenner family’s Christmas party and Kanye West’s listening party in Wyoming — but Frost much prefers (and has a natural talent for) sitting down and having unfiltered conversations with his famous friends and guests.

Kerwin Frost Wants You to Feel His Anxiety

“Dead air is interesting sometimes," the DJ, comedian, and talkshow host Kerwin Frost says over Zoom on a recent afternoon from his home in Brooklyn. He’s wearing a turquoise and green foam hat in the shape of a coronavirus particle, as observed through a microscope. (“I just bought it on Amazon!” he adds brightly.) Also visible in the frame: his signature face tattoo which, admittedly, is hard to miss—it's the image of a pencil, which extends from his right eye to his chin. The look, while certainly out of the ordinary, falls right in line with Frost’s alternative approach to his career—and his whole life. The Harlem native got his start by hanging out in SoHo outside of the Supreme store and VFiles, linking up with his best friends Luka Sabbat and Mike the Ruler to just chill. In 2018, he began DJing on a whim at a friend’s party; a year later, he found himself playing music for the guests at the Kardashian-Jenner family’s Christmas party in Hidden Hills. He also started interviewing celebrities that same year for a show called “Kerwin Frost Talks,” a non-traditional YouTube conversation series in which the 25-year-old engaged in painfully awkward Q&As with the likes of Tyler the Creator, Post Malone, and Jeremy Scott. Often, Frost will say nothing for long stretches of time, as the camera pans between him and his subject. The series took off, with wild success and millions of views on YouTube. Today, “Kerwin Frost Talks” returns for season two. (His first guest? Mac DeMarco.)
