#GentsUnited is a series created by Gents Among Men that is designed to highlight the various men and women who possess and display a creative sense of style and class. Here is Mersedéc Roberts // @MERSE_UH_LAGO
What was or is your style influence?
I couldn’t say that any particular person or thing influences me. Individuality is very important to me. I’m so hell bent on remaining true to myself & doing what feels right. I have to feel comfortable in whatever I wear. Altogether, style is just an extension of my personality & how I’m feeling at the time.
A Gentlewoman is ……?
A gentlewomen is always a class act. She’s mysterious, strong, elegant, charming, and always leaves you with nothing to be desired.
What quote do you live by?
“Life is short, Break the Rules. Forgive quickly, Kiss SLOWLY. Love truly. Laugh uncontrollably And never regret ANYTHING that makes you smile.” ― Mark Twain
How does your environment influence your style?
I’m a country girl at heart, I was born in the south but mostly raised in the city. The quiet, toned down, minimalist environment of the south, mixed with the aggressive, loud, unapologetic nature of the city gives somewhat of a twist & unique sensibility to my personal style.
What is your passion in life?
Happiness. Happiness in its purest form is what I am in search of and passionate about. I want to continuously fall in love with everything around me. That extends to my dream of owning my own women’s line coming to fruition, owning a beach home on an exotic island with the love of my life and helping to give another face to the positive representation of the young African-American woman in today’s society.
