Seems like it was just yesterday that unapologetically non-pc American Apparel snapped up NYC cool-kid OAK, then promptly plotted the edgy East Coast brand's Westward expansion. Following their LA debut in DTLA earlier this spring—and after much teasing and taunting— the monochrome-obsessed label is unveiling its second City of Angels outpost on Beverly Boulevard this Friday.
As mentioned previously, the massive 6,000-square-foot boutique will offer OAK's minimalist-cool merch for women and men inside, while weary shoppers can relax in their greenery-filled chill spot outside. Of course, the brand's toasting their newest LA shop and the launch of their seventh Oakazine with a booze-filled grand opening bash this Thursday.
Stoked for it? The party's happening from 8pm to 10pm and will boast DJ Sindrisalad on the decks (yes, there's open bar, too). Save your spot on the list by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. See you there?
