Meet the Board: Tyler / by Identities Fashion


There's lit, and then there's light up shoes. TYLER FRANCES '18 of the IDENTITIES Creative Board walks us through his unusual footwear choice and more below. 

What’s your formula for getting dressed in the morning?
Swipe left on my phone to see how cold it’s going to be. It’s a question of “Am I feeling business professional or street style?” on that day. Usually, it’s some combination of the two.

Favorite local clothing stores?
I do love the Tannery. Got my leather pants from there, and they're fantastic. I’m pretty basic, so I also love Zara. The one on Newbury Street is great! 

What is your biggest fashion no-no?
There was a period where I was wearing a lot of neon things when out and about. The neon was a little bit too rave-y. Now, if I’m wearing any sort of color, I wear light up shoes. They're fun, too — you can turn them on and off.

What do you think is the role of IDENTITIES at Harvard?
I think the role of IDENTITIES is to put on a really cool show and through that introduce fashion to people who may not be familiar with it. IDENTITIES also gives an outlet for people who are already interested in fashion, getting together with like-minded people. Plus who doesn’t like putting on a fun event in April?

Favorite style icons or style bloggers?
Chris Preston the stylist. He's this guy in London, and I actually got to meet him this summer! His aesthetic is so minimalist but also very "out there" — It just really captures your attention.
