Do you know Josh Peskowitz? He predates “influencer” as a term but that’s been his function for at least the last half of his 22 years in fashion magazines and the upper echelons of retail. At 38, he’s a deep industry insider and public fixture in the landscape along with guys like Nick Wooster, one of the most photographed people every fashion week.
It’s no wonder Peskowitz and Wooster are both brand ambassadors for GREATS shoes. The smart new sneaker company out of Brooklyn seems to be doing everything right.
Peskowitz was born in Brooklyn, just like GREATS, but now lives in California. On the occasion of Nordstrom launching GREATS online, we linked up for this story in Los Angeles in which he did some modeling, self-styled in clothes personally selected at Nordstrom The Grove in L.A., with GREATS shoes.
Between photos at his house, we chatted with Peskowitz about his time at FADER, Cargo, Esquire, the old Style.com (his video series “In the Closet” holds up), and generally his life in style going back to the ’90s. We also met his cat, Turkey, who was really sweet.
