Once a year over, a thousand WeWork members and friends load into a caravan of buses and head up to the Adirondacks to take over the summer camp Raquette Lake. WeWork's mission is to make small business more successful by offering work spaces for a "community of creators." To accomplish this goal, they provide offices, infrastructure, and an unparalleled network of fellow entrepreneurs.
Let's skip all this talk about work. It's the Friday of Labor Day Weekend, and all you are thinking about is what outfit to rock out for the long weekend at the shore. If you dare, draw some inspiration from the seven best dressed people at summer camp.
Keep it simple, for the lead singer of St. Lucia there is always, "no touching of the hair or face." This man has the best hair this side of the Mississippi. When I asked him on Twitter how he kept his mane so manicured, he replied "mainly it's the fan placed right in front of me." A charming statement, but below that veneer of professionalism I am convinced there is pounds of product. Hailing from Johannesburg, South Africa, Jean-Philip Grobler brings an international feel to a a simple island look with crisp white pants, light brown boat shoes, and a short sleeve button down to die for. On closer inspection, his shirt is adorned with topical images, boats, palm trees, and no name islands, the perfect piece for his stage name St. Lucia.
With space age shades you see above, St. Lucia's side man lets you know he was part of the not fucking around crew. Add in retro suspenders that he popped off once the show heated up and a Amish head piece to round out the outfit.
Do you like patterns? So do they. St. Lucia's guitar and synth players had a killer combination going on towards the right side of the stage. On the left you see a hieroglyphic dress perfectly cut above the knees, playing off her dark brown hair. Moving right, a classic beater and open chested flying fish shirt kept the island vibes flowing.
Moving off the stage and into the crowd, this man's British themed athletic onesie was the star of the weekend (over three days I saw this piece on 4 different men and one woman, no comment). Throw in bright red high tops and this wild man could be seen coming from a mile away.
Me-ow! The greatest concert photographer in the history of the mankind. Ok, that may be a stretch. But tell me the last time you saw a pudgy man in a kitty kat dress-vest stage dive mid Girl Talk performance and selfie video the entire move? I rest my case.
Classic t-shirt guy. With the release of the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, this gentleman was vintage and modern at the same time.
Last, but certainly not least, the confused hipster. Waking up at 6:30 to catch the bus leaving at 6:45, he apparently got dressed in the dark. Luckily for him, the badass woven cowboy hat makes up for the hand cropped wolf tank top. Layering in a denim shirt for effect and he was on his way to camp in style.
Let me know which outfit you thought was the best, I certainly can't decide.
