Brooklyn designer adds vintage touch to stars' wardrobes

Posted: Updated:
CLINTON HILL -

A Brooklyn-based designer is giving a unique touch to the wardrobes of stars like Justin Bieber through hand-picked vintage pieces.

Charnier Corey opened Leisure Life NYC in 2013. He is influencing culture by designing and bringing vintage choices into modern day fashion.

The majority of the apparel Corey receives comes from the internet. He then adds his own touch by hand-embroidering details that inspire him.

 

The aesthetic of Corey's shop is also deeply personal -- most of the paintings on the walls were created by him.

"I have an aesthetic ... a certain narrative that I want to push as well and I try to do that with our in-house brand mixed in with the vintage items that we're influenced by," says Corey.

Corey's brand has clearly taken off -- he says he has sent pieces to Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin, Bieber's wife.
