Perhaps, like the rest of us, you recently binge-watched Aziz Ansari’s series Master of None on Netflix. If so, maybe you noticed that beyond all its jokes, drama and frank dialogue about dating and race in America, this is also a show about style.
In particular, you can view it as a guide for how to dress unembarrassingly as a city-dwelling person entering one’s 30s. That’s due to the careful work of costume designer Dana Covarrubias.
We spoke with Covarrubias on the phone about the individual styles of the buddy crew at the center of Master of None: Dev (Aziz Ansari), Arnold (Eric Wareheim), Denise (Lena Waithe) and Brian (Kelvin Yu).
Also: how to reconsider your style as you turn the big three-O.

Surf-inspired brand Saturdays NYC started in 2009 with a staunch imperative to chill, selling espresso shots and hosting hang-outs in the storefront backyard. Years later the brand has become a serious fashion player, but the chill has not waned.
When we met with co-founder Morgan Collett at Saturdays’ showroom in New York, a zen glow hovered over him from the previous day, when he watched the sun rise and surfed in Japan with one of his idols, Kohei Chiba.
A hardcore fan of Swedish design who cut his teeth working for Acne and J. Lindeberg, Collett is also still that kid from Newport Beach, California, who got a varsity letter on his high school surf team.
Read on for our interview with Collett to learn how his brand truly represents a culture, how surfing is different in New York versus Cali–and to see images of prototype shoes in Saturdays’ SoHo showroom.
