13 to Watch in 2013
Studly downtown fashion designer
In 2010 Kyle Brincefield founded STUDmuffin NYC, an edgy street-inspired clothing line offering one-of-a-kind creations custom-embellished with metallic studs, spikes, and paint. A stud who studs? It's just too easy! Soon after Patricia Field began carrying the line at her legendary Manhattan store, Brincefield launched his STUDmuffin NYC web store in summer 2012. His handmade pieces — love the studded sweats! — have already been featured in numerous editorial fashion spreads and on celebs like Adam Lambert, Snooki, and choreographer Jonte' Moaning. Expect to see his sharp looks everywhere in 2013.
