Aspiring streetwear designer Cecilia Joseph is currently developing her own line of hats and apparel. Her brand, geared towards female empowerment and the strength found in the love of one's self will be used as a driver of her strong love for style and all things "pretty". Her brand will serve as representative for the power of the "V".
Ironically, we would say to "keep an eye out for her", but Vigilare says it all! In italian Vigilare means to "keep watch".

If you ask Cedel what his passion is, he will tell you that he's an artist first. With skills ranging from music producer, graphic designer, stylist, and dancer, it's safe to say that he owns a broad field of artistic talents. In the process of developing LaVi Lifestyle Group with his brothers, there's no limit to what can be expected in the near future.

Allow Us to Introduce Ourselves...

Hey there!

Welcome to Peculiar Artistry. We're a couple of young, stylish individuals that dreamt of making a style blog unlike the rest. Our mission is to capture and highlight an individuals personal style statement and act as a platform for their talents and creativity. As New Yorkers, we love to promote our city (we can't help it) so a majority of our shots will be taken right here on the streets of the Apple- BUT our travels may lead us to a town near you!

"Good new art may not look like art. Inspiration doesn't follow style, it CREATES it." -Darby Bannard
