I first met Jean Claude Tribe on the backlots of Paris Photo Los Angeles at Paramount Pictures Studios. He was wearing an Elizabethan-era collar. He looked not of this time, ethereal, ancient – I ran up to him to take his picture. Over the last few weeks, I’ve been learning more and more about Tribe, his art, his music and his fashion sensibilities. They are wholly unique, yet steeped in a plethora of references, from the Old Masters to luxury street wear culture. Currently, Tribe is working on his debut solo album. In the following interview, Tribe talks about growing up in the midst of the LA riots, moving to London at 16, being the face of cult French street wear label Enfant Riches Déprimés, and his new album, which will be released this fall.
