From edgy-chic streetwear at MRKT to laid-back cool merch at Mohawk Man, Silver Lake has much to offer for men seeking stylish, unique gear. Striking a balance between both aesthetics is KILLSPENCER designer Spencer Nikosey, who picked the hipster 'hood as the home of his luxe accessory label's 2,200-square-foot workshop and storefront.
In addition to showcasing the brand's industrial-inspired collection of handcrafted leather and canvas duffel bags, backpacks, travel accessories and tech gear, the space also houses a team of talented craftspeople, who make all the merch right in the store. Plus, shoppers can score limited edition and one-of-a-kind items at the shop before they hit the label's website.
Love KILLSPENCER's artfully crafted wares? Though Nikosey & Co. landed in Silver Lake earlier this summer, they're officially toasting their new abode with a grand opening bash next month. Stop by the shop Thursday, October 17th from 7pm to 10pm to welcome them to their new nabe.
