In 2003, Joshy D. started REBEL8 with just $500. The then 22-year-old San Franciscan was an early supporter of Mike Giant, a tattoo and graffiti artist he met in the late '90s that—little did he know—would one day become a legend. Joshy asked Giant to make a few exclusive T-shirt graphics for him, which he still does today. Eleven years later, REBEL8 is still a cult-favorite streetwear label known for its authentic artwork celebrating Cali's skateboard, graffiti and tattoo culture. They've just opened a pop-up in DTLA, and superfans are flocking.

Located at the entrance of REBEL8's massive warehouse on Wall Street, the temporary summer shop features a mix of seasonal and limited-edition apparel, art and accessories for both men and women, all hand-selected by Joshy and his team. Prices range from $3 for a pin to $150 for a denim jacket. See something you like in the brand's e-shop? Order it online and contact customer service to have it shipped to the pop-up for easy pick-up.

Check out the space below and stop by Saturdays from 12 to 5pm.
