Alton Mason Jr. and Dilone Will Give You Friendship Envy

 

By Megan Gustashaw

When Alton Mason Jr. and Dilone are together, you know it’s going to be a party. For one, they’ve both got killer dance moves—pick a genre, and they’ll own it. For another, they’re both free spirits, confident in their own skin, and happy to their core. The energy they radiate is totally infectious.

The pair met at a rooftop dance party in New York City not too long ago and became fast friends. Both caught their big breaks as models during the Fall 2016 runway season—Alton was cast via social media by the one of the reigning kings of streetwear, while Dilone made a splash at 40 (!) shows that season. Now the 20-somethings travel the world in the name of fashion, occasionally reuniting at parties or events to swap stories and shred on the dance floor.

When it came time to cast our Fall 2018 denim campaign, we knew we had to bring these two together—and prep the ultimate set playlist for the reunion. In between songs, they dished on friendship, first impressions, and fit. Check it out below.

24/7 Friends

“Dilone is a healer, a lover, a listener, someone that you could call at 4:00 A.M. just to talk about anything. She has an amazing smile. She’s so caring and just gentle.”

Life of the Party

“What made me want to get to know Dilone was her laugh. I heard her laugh, and I was like, ‘Who’s that laughing?’ and then I saw her smile, and I was like, ‘What’s she talking about? I need to know who that is.’”

He’s Got the Power

“I would describe him as an incredibly talented, creative human being who has a gorgeous smile, and is very spiritual. He’s a really great friend and is always there for you. And he’s beyond stylish. There’s just nothing that Alton can’t do, honestly.”

Leave it All on the Dance Floor

“I knew Alton would be my friend when we started dancing together, honestly, and we were just like, ‘Okay, cool. This is easy’. We’re two peas in a pod.”

Alton’s Advice: Go Big, Fly Free

“Find the jeans that you could rock with, the ones that you could really just sauce up, step out, and fly in. I love baggy jeans when I’m dancing so I can be loose and feel free.”

Dilone’s Advice: Go Slim, Get Personal

“You want something that fits and conforms to your body in a nice way. Like a good friendship. It’s puzzle pieces.”
