Style Stop: Paul Johnson-Calderon

The Style Stop team spotted Paul Johnson-Calderon, 29, sitting outside on a recent chilly day. He was wearing Stubbs & Wootton loafers, Levis pants, an Alexander McQueen scarf and a Brooks Brothers sweater. He accented the outfit with his grandmother’s Navajo Nation bracelet. Johnson-Calderon grew up in Northampton and Berkeley, California, before living in New York City where he worked at Vogue and Paper magazines.



His fashion sense: Style has always been my way of showing my personality. In places like Berkeley and New York City, you just get a melting pot of people. I get inspiration from everything I see.

His grandmother’s bracelet: I have tons of my grandmother’s stuff. She had like fur stoles and stuff like that. Most people think it’s ridiculous, but I think it’s nice.

Fashion Entrepreneur: 
I have a line of bow ties called Mauvais Garcons: everything is made here in Massachusetts — all hand-made from vintage fabrics and hemps, and it’s all sustainable.

HANDMADE & LOCAL: My business is based out of a studio in my mom’s house here in Northampton. Everyone loves hand-made in New England; it works around here. I might as well be selling maple syrup.
