Survival of the Fittest Ft. Recho Omondi Naked Beauty

    • Fashion & Beauty

“Here I am running my own business which literally means — I’m making up all of this s**t as I go. I’m not any particular genius” - Recho Omondi…… but low-key (IMHO) Recho is a genius
Designer, friend and deep-thinker, Recho, returns to Naked Beauty! We talk about her now iconic n*ggas sweatshirt and how it found its way on to Issa Rae’s Insecure, why the timeline is the new runway, how the fashion cycle is constantly persuading us to consume and its subsequent impact on the environment. Recho has received a lot of press (hey Teen Vogue!), but she’s not buying into the hype — she talks about the difference between press coverage and industry success.
We also get into:
- How she handles stress when everything feels like it’s falling apart but you also have a business to run (:16)
- Getting back into ballet & the “leave it at the bar” mentality (:21)
- Using heartbreak to create something magical & how the 90s classic “Great Expectations” inspired her latest collection (:28)
- How my Sudio wireless headphones (hey first sponsor!) have changed the game (33:45)
- The trends I’m really over, what I’m loving & getting into the sweatpants look(:35)
- Fragrance obsessions Le Labo, Tom Ford and Byredo (:38)
- Roll-on body glitter, YM & Limited Too Nostalgia & what the youth are missing out on being in this digital vortex(:49:35)
- Is this new generation ‘fake-woke’? Recho thinks so! They shave their heads but not their underarms…. (:52)
- Balancing the toxic and natural elements of a beauty routine (55:30)
- A VERY HOT TAKE ON BLACK PANTHER (:58:20) — don’t worry she still loved it
- That tine Mira Duma used the n-word on Instagram but how it’s even deeper than that (1:05)
- The thought-process behind posting a FIRE selfie (1:10)
