#24: Ruslan Karablin
As promised, the continuation of our countdown of the 25 Most Powerful People In Streetwear:
24. Ruslan Karablin
A living definition of innovation, Ruslan Karablin (also known as SURR) has managed to make a name for himself amongst the streetwear and art community alike.
An artist himself, he’s used the imagery created in his works as the graphics throughout his clothing to create unique collections.
The concept isn’t a novel one, but its his ability to deliver with such great timing that has made him standout.
The brains behind the “Comme Des FUCKDOWN” craze – a play on the Japanese fashion label Comme Des Garçons which means ‘Like Boys’ and is pronounced ‘Calm – De – FUCKDOWN’, SURR’s place on this list is rightfully earned.
