To know Capricorn Clark is to know the culture. And I don’t say that lightly. The hip-hop and streetwear vet has had her fingers on the pulse for nearly two decades and her story is one we can all learn from. From serving as Sean Comb’s personal assistant to lending her voice to Pharrell’s music and everything in between, Cap packs more advice and anecdotal fire into a hour-long conversation than most do in an entire lifetime. Check out our illuminating and wildly entertaining conversation below and then shop her wide-ranging personal archive featuring some of the best BAPE, BBC and Ice Cream pieces to have ever graced Grailed.
