Rhamier Auguste is a manager at Opening Ceremony, and a freelance stylist and creative consultant. There is a subversive sense of humor in his style that is tempered by an impossible sense of cool: I look at him and I don’t see a fashion plate, just a guy with great style, who seems like someone cool to talk to. I was even more thrilled when I came to his Bed-Stuy apartment to shoot, and found a very tightly curated wardrobe of mostly crazy pieces, with a smattering of a few basics. “Everything goes with anything,” Rhamier quotes stylist Lori Goldstein, who he’s previously worked for. I questioned my notion of what is essential in a wardrobe: as I trekked to my favorite consignment store hauling bags filled with the perfect Comme black jackets and must-have white Thom Browne shirts in every version, I thought, what a pleasure it might be to get dressed in the morning picking through a very concise wardrobe of clothes you love.
