The real romance in ‘You People’ is with Streetwear

The first scene of friends everyone, Kenya Barris’s new Jonah Hill-starring Netflix movie, an ankle-high camera glides through a series of boring work boots in a synagogue before landing on a pair of Nike x Supreme Dunks outstanding. These belong to Ezra, Hill’s character – who immediately, in the midst of the army, stooped to wipe the stain on his precious sneakers lovingly. The first scene tells you where the movie’s priorities lie: while on the face of it friends everyone is a film about the interracial relationship between Ezra and Lauren London’s Amira, it is also a tribute and love letter to sneaker and streetwear culture.

friends everyone stands alone prominently in this respect. There are so many movies great features, fashion worthy of the moodand some even helped create fashion cupbut few contemporary streetwear hugs bears like friends everyone. Nods to fashion don’t just appear as outfits for fan accounts to make and break, but as major plot points throughout friends everyone. In the synagogue, Ezra remembers to bring wipes for his sneakers — but leaves his yarmulke in the car, much to his mother’s dismay, played by Julia Louis-Dreyfus. (friends everyone‘s cast, including Eddie Murphy and Nia Long as Amira’s parents, are seriously stacked.) Throughout the film, the film uses streetwear to announce that Ezra, who dreams of becoming a star hosts a podcast that dissects what he repeats (and slightly suffers) called “Culture,” just a little different.

Sneakers and clothes were also the glue for the spark of romance between him and Amira. Ezra and Amira’s first date is coming soon Okay until the latter compliments the former’s lackluster Gucci slides. In fact, the whole dating story is told through the couple’s shoes. Ezra, dressed as a warm giant in a tie-dyed Camp High tracksuit, was sweating at first: he tapped on Gallery socks and Nike x Off loafers- White nervously, the camera was close enough that the word “SHOES LINE” could be read. But Ezra’s lines about him “never saying bad words” on her slides set the stage for a shoe-focused clip. During the date, the couple’s feet began to move closer together until finally Gucci skates and Abloh-designed dunk shoes met in a StockX-approved footsie game.

friends everyone emphasizes that street fashion is more than just clothes but in fact an entire relationship can be built on a shared love for it. Indeed, Ezra and Amira’s entire relationship is punctuated by the moment with fashion and sneakers. They take the next big step in their romance by buying a pair fit Sean Wotherspoon Air Max 1/97s from a shop called Kulture, looks a lot like Kith. I did a Google search to see if the store’s architect, Daniel Arsham, received credit. (He didn’t.) But friends everyone also takes things to an extreme, even if it’s not always obvious that the movie is joking around. When Ezra proposed, before getting down on his knees, he took off his sneakers so they wouldn’t crease. While cuddling in bed, Ezra and Amira wear Supreme and Gucci clothes. (That’s crazy! Buy some pajamas!)
