When I think about the famous writer, filmmaker, actor, and director Spike Lee, I hardly think about fashion. What I do think about are the range of movies he’s brought to the big screen such as Malcolm X starring Denzel Washington and even School Daze among others.

Spike Lee will oversee specific items, such as video and other content, at Ecko’s brand – Complex. Get the full story at the interview below via Wall Street Journal.
