Yet another streetwear brand has foregone Fairfax, but not for La Brea. After popping up in Paris earlier this year, A$AP Bari's Kanye-faved label VLONE (which means for "live alone, die alone") made its Stateside debut last night in DTLA. The merch is now shoppable at the brand's Arts District pop-up shop, which runs through the end of the month.
Bari transformed the space (located next door to Cerre's atelier) into a street art-filled hangout and pop-up shop, where skateboarding models showcased looks from the 15-piece range. On top of stocking the brand's latest collection, the shop offers VLONE's capsule collab with avant-garde label Off-White.
See more from last night's presentation in the gallery above.
VLONE is open daily from 12 to 8pm through Sunday, April 30th.
