Since debuting on West 3rd Street last summer, Liberty Fairs' Concept 8366 1/2 Space has rolled out a steady rotation of stylish tenants, from cool apothecaries and gentlemen's groomers to wash-it-your-way denim and festival-ready vintage. The latest brand to pop up in the 800-square-foot space is LA-based men's brand AXS Folk Technology, whose stylish outdoor gear is camping out in the shop now through April 27th.
Inspired by Cali-loving artists like David Hockney and Sam Francis, designer Kyle Ng's pieces are all about mixing "easy living with everyday function." Fashionable mountain men can expect to find the conceptual label's hand-dyed, handcrafted camping- and climbing-ready merch like colorful parkas and anoraks, wool button downs, thermals, pants, accessories and more ($55 to $550) at the revolving concept space.
AXS Folk Technology at Concept 8366 & 1/2 is open Monday through Friday from 12pm to 6pm and Saturday and Sunday from 11am to 6pm.
