What’s in Hawaii Wardrobe Stylist Tyson Joines’ Clutch?

Pack That Sass Up: Stylist Tyson Joines clues us in on what’s in his clutch.


When you live, breathe and work fashion, you’ve gotta walk the shop and talk the posh. Case in point: Wilhelmina-repped stylist Tyson Joines, who makes sure to be cute and carry strong each day. We took a gander into this local tastemaker’s fierce clutch to see what he’s toting to photo shoots, events, interviews with celebs and, of course, trips to the mall. 

Because no matter where he goes, he’s got this style game in the bag. 

Joines—like us!—is a big fan of camo, and the pattern packs even more punch when paired with gold pyramid studs on this Valentino pouch, which he usually reserves for evening events. At 6’1", he easily dwarfs smaller, daintier bags, but the large envelope structure and roomy interior make it the perfect statement piece for just about any ensemble. Available on order at Neiman Marcus, Ala Moana Center, 951-3428, $575.

Business meetings, interviews, styling notes—an on-the-go career in an industry that never stops makes a pen and paper at the ready real lifesavers. This sleek notebook from J.Crew is covered in navy fabric for a polished finish. The gilded camel design makes pulling out your pad for a quick note or number jot look extra chic. J.Crew version no longer available, but try this classy gold number at Kate Spade, 2333 Kalakaua Ave., 922-3390, $18.

The city that never sleeps is also the style center of the country—and it’s calling Joines’ name. His cute JFK phone case (alluding to the airport in New York, not the person) is a reminder to (eventually) follow his dreams to his future fashionista home every time he picks up his phone. Which, trust us, is a lot. Available at urbanoutfitters.com, $16. 

When style is your bread and butter, visuals are key. The Fujifilm XP camera is a conveniently compact way to snap a pic, whether it is of clothes he’s pulling for an upcoming shoot, or a quick, on-the-spot shot of a tall, leggy gal on the street who’s got the makings to model. It happens, he says, a lot more than you’d think. Similar Fujifilm cameras available at Best Buy, starting at $190, 478 Alakawa St., 525-7182.

It’s all about who you meet—and who gets your card. When Joines is out and about, he’s sure to always have some business cards on hand, kept sharp and neat in a sturdy, plastic card case. After all, no one wants to take fashion tips from a dog-eared token. Similar style available at containerstore.com, $9.99.

Clean lines and a minimalist design give this Marc Jacobs foldover-style wallet an effortless, high-fashion feel. Shark gray goes with everything, and supple rubber and twill textures round out this perfect, masculine piece. Available at marcjacobs.com, $39.

It’s important to look—and smell—delicious. Joines chucks a few packets of Trident White gum into his pockets each day to keep his smile pearly and his breath fresh for any networking opportunity that may come along. $4.75, Longs Drugs,1088 Bishop St., 536-4551
