If you have yet to jump on the designer parody apparel train, hit up Kitson next month. From June to August the popular retailer will be hosting in-store shops dedicated to Brian Lichtenberg, the LA-based designer known for Céline and Hermés spoofs that have been rocked by everyone from Rihanna to Cara Delevingne.
WWD notes that the pop ups will cover between 100 to 600 square feet and will feature "new and exclusive designs from the designer's graphic sweater, T-shirt and accessory collection," which have been selling like crazy.
"I haven't seen anything in seven years selling like that," Kitson owner Fraser Ross explains to the fashion trade journal. "The women carrying Céline and Hermés bags are buying it. They are mixing and matching street with designer." Get your fix before the trend officially becomes played-out.
