The hot Dallas DJ shares his personal wish list with DFW Style Daily’s Jim Duran.
Watch out, Santa – Blake’s not holding back.
Dallas DJ Blake Ward can be found at the helm of Beauty Bar’s Glamorama every Friday night. You may have also glimpsed him spinning at the grand opening of LF in the West Village, hosted by our own Abby Gregory. In high demand on the party circuit, Blake’s cool holiday list reflects a luxe, downtown vibe.
However, we’re thinking even Santa might have to call in a few favors to make one of these wishes come true.
Says Blake of Givenchy’s Double Zip Leather Biker Jacket ($2,750, SSENCE), “It’s not the typical biker jacket, and the sleeves zip off, so you can wear it as a vest too.”
“Creepers were popularized by the Teddy Boys of the ‘50s, and the Punks of the ‘70s,” Blake explains. He considers this Pony Hair Buckled Creeper by Mugler (£400, oki-ni) the “ultimate pair”.
Prada’s sleek headphones also earned a spot on this DJ’s list ($595, Prada), though he warns that he can’t yet vouch for their sound quality.
Blake’s enthusiasm for the Moog Slim Phatty Synthesizer ($795, Musician’s Friend) is contagious. “This is the coolest synthesizer to come out this year,” he proclaims. “It’s capable of producing warm highs and crisp low tones that will shake the entire room!”
Last but hardly least, Blake’s final wish is certainly bigger than a bread box. He covets this Contemporary Black and White Modular House by Spanish design firm A-Cero. Hey, a guy can dream.
