Photographer and stylist Kadeem "KJohn" Johnson never keeps his feet away from the sand for too long. With a mother from Belize and a father from Dominica, it's no wonder Johnson is always jetting off to a new tropical vacation when he gets the chance. His Instagram feed takes you on an escape and makes you feel as if you're on these adventures with him. No matter if he's in Jamaica, Dakar or Cabo San Lucas, his images pop off the screen and will make you want to book a flight and get your eat, pray and love on.
The Bronx, NY native now living in Los Angeles, has always been one of the cool kids. In the early days of Tumblr blogs and NYC street style, KJohn's photos quickly went viral. He could always be seen with a camera in hand and sporting an eclectic vintage style inspired by the 60s, 70s and early 80s. Recently, we caught up with stylish image maker before he headed off to his latest tropical vacay.
From oversized tote bags from Acne Studios to relaxing candles from Malin + Goetz, here are a few of KJohn's travel essentials.
