There’s more to Avenue Black than meets the eye. His newest line — Urbane, has extra details that blend with his whimsical yet minimalist vibe, but you have to look beyond the surface to see them. The same can be said about Jason Richardson, the brand’s designer. When I first met him, I was prepping for a shoot and decided to use some of his pieces. His handshake was firm and his smile was professional enough to work on both Main Street and Wall Street.
