Name: Mellany Sanchez. Instagram/Twitter: @leather_weather  Tumblr: workhardforthis

Function: Social Mediator / Organizer. Weekend Sales Associate.

Hometown: Brooklyn, NY.

Years in NYC: All my years.

Birthdate Personality: July 10. The day of Mastered Passive Active Duality. Meditation: Understanding begins, but does not end, with the act of perception.

preOAKupied: What I like at OAK right now are the really beautiful draping pieces from Rick Owens. I am loving the jersey skirts with sneakers and sweatshirts right now. I also really love all of the unisex drop shoulder silhouettes from the OAK line, I have two of the tops and the dress. The black drop shoulder dress is chill with black waxed jeans under and hightops, or cool just as a dress with layers on top.

Brooklyn or Manhattan: Brooklyn.

What keeps you busy?: I’m a senior at NYU studying Media, Culture, and Communications and I’m usually busy keeping up with lectures, art shows, and installations in and around the city. I think of myself as a flâneur in many senses where I like to be about the city just intaking and analyzing what I see, WHEN I see.  I just wrapped up an internship doing Visual Interiors and Exteriors for rag&bone, and now I’m busy doing all of the social media for OAK. I also love doing all of my own personal social media stuff like adding to my tumblr and my Instagram to give others some insight to my visual experiences and interests.

Wool or Lambskin?: Lambskin.

What do you collect?: I collect leather pieces, motivational quotes, sneakers, leather journals and white tees.

What pieces in your wardrobe would you never give up?: My camouflage jacket I’ve had since high school.

Nature or Nurture?: Nurture.

What is your social media philosophy?: No crying on Facebook, “keep it journal”.

What makes you a believer?: The 24 hours we all get everyday. Aesthetics. Good people.
