14 Questions with Ralphkem!

Monday, 30 January 2017


What's up, guys?!
In this post, I'll be asking my amazing, super-stylish friend and fashion blogger—Uche—fourteen questions about his style-blogging experience and the things that inspire him the most!
Check out his blog: Ralphkem.com ㅣHis Youtube: Here ㅣTwitter: @ralphkem ㅣInstagram: @ralphkem






Me: What made you decide to start your blog?
RK: One major thing that inspired or made me start my own blog was the fact that a couple of years ago before I started my blog, every time I would search for inspiration for menswear I would always get the same results; a guy in a "Suit and Tie" and don't get me wrong it's nice but I was like isn't there anything else.

So I decided to start my blog to kinda show a different side of menswear, that YES we can wear certain colours like pink or wear different textures and outfits.
My mom who is a big inspiration takes a lot of pictures and it's just cool to see how her style has changed from like her university days to this current period and I think that's amazing.

Me: What inspired the name RALPHKEM?
RK: At the start of my blog I had different names for it, at first it was "LEADINGEDGE" and then I changed it to "STYLEISCREATIVITY" *pauses* which by the way I remember featuring you (Chinenye) on it and then it went on to "WHATRALPHWEARS" but I felt like making it more personal so I took my name Raphael and shortened it to RALPH, then same for my surname IKEM; took away the "I" and bam! - "RALPHKEM"


Me: Where in the world are you?
RK: I'm currently in Cyprus.

Me: Describe your personal style

SHOP THE LOOK: ASOS BOMBER J / GAP JEANS

RK: I would describe my personal style as one that is multifaceted, I don't like to be enclosed to just one style.

SHOP THE LOOK: HAT / GLASSES: ASOS / JUMPER: SOLD OUT

It generally depends on my mood, some days I'm really preppy, some days I go for a more minimalist look or vibe.

Me: What do you do when you're not blogging?



RK: When I'm not blogging, I'm probably dying from school work *laughs* or I'm most probably making or watching YouTube videos or just thinking of outfit ideas, locations for photoshoots or just working on my editing on Final Cut Pro for my videos.

Me: One piece you can’t live without?



SHOP THE LOOK: ASOS DENIM JACKET SIMILAR CHECK HERE
RK: One piece I can't live without would have to be my oversize denim jacket. I just love it so much and it is suitable for any season.

Me: What is your closet like?
RK: I would say my closet is really colourful, a lot denim, button up shirts, jackets, long-line t-shirts, different textures and prints and so on.
Me: What takes up most of your space?
RK: My space is taken up mostly by my denim jackets, bombers jackets, duster coat, overcoats and a lot of jeans.

Me: What is your favourite store to shop on?
RK: Definitely ASOS | 100%


Me: Inspiration?
RK: I get inspiration from a lot of things: be it architecture, my friends, family, celebrities, inanimate objects, pictures, paintings, artwork and so on


Me: Who takes the majority of your photos?
RK: It depends on who is free because I don't have a photographer who is ready 24/7 because of school and also it depends on who I feel can bring my vision to life but of late it's been my friends, Lotanna and Jessie.

Me: Current fashion obsession?

SHOP THE LOOK: UO SOUVENIR BOMBER 

RK: My current fashion obsession will definitely have to be bomber jackets and also straight cropped jeans, I don't know why but I just honestly like it so much.

Me: What type of camera do you use?
RK: I use the Canon EOS 80D

Me: Fave musician?
RK: I have a lot, for male it's Frank Ocean and MNEK, for female it's Solange Knowles, Amy Winehouse and Ariana Grande and for groups Fifth Harmony, Mic Lowry and Disclosure.
