TheGoodLife! x Woolrich Present: A Celebration of American Soul Featuring the Photography of Ricky Powell and Hosted by Slick Rick the Ruler

TheGoodLife! was honored to partner with Woolrich to present “A Celebration of American Soul Featuring the Photography of Ricky Powell and Hosted by Slick Rick the Ruler.” On the occasion of Ricky Powell’s 57th birthday, TheGoodLife! and Woolrich installed a collection of Ricky’s iconic prints at Woolrich’s Soho store showcasing some of the 1980’s and 90’s most influential figures like Basquiat, Andy Warhol, LL Cool J, Run DMC, Beastie Boys, Keith Haring and more. Adding another legendary layer to the evening was host Slick Rick the Ruler who paid homage to both Ricky and to Woolrich, a brand that has been amongst his favorites since he wore one of their coats in the video for “Teenage Love” in 1998. After giving some Woolrich styling tips out to Fitz Henley and Kelsey Adams and chopping it up with the likes of Poster Boy, Milk and K$ace from The 212 and filmmaker Charlie Ahearn, The Ruler toasted Ricky with a surprise performance of “Children’s Story!” Check out a full gallery of photos by Sebastian Ramirez below.
