As fans of master electronic music mixer Skrillex already know (and if we're going by Instagram alone, there's at least 5.5 million of you out there), the Highland Park native founded his own label back in 2011, and now his local Skrillers and Skrillettes (yep, that's what his superfans call themselves) and streetwear enthusiasts alike will be psyched to learn that OWSLA will be temporarily setting up shop in town.
Besides acting as a record label for artists like Alesia and Dillon Francis, OWSLA also offers a cool line of merchandise — like the graphic tees, swim trunks, dad hats and snapbacks, and satin bomber currently available in the online shop — which you can expect to find when the Chinatown pop-up officially opens this Saturday.
Following Friday night's invite-only VIP party, in which attendees will be treated to the first peek at the shop's exclusive new merchandise plus food, drink, and elbow-rubbing with notable guests, the public can check out all the goods between 8pm and midnight during the Saturday's grand opening bash. Festivities will include a bar (21 and over only!) and live music. If you plan to join in, be sure to RSVP here.
In addition to new apparel, accessories, and other merch, the shop will also feature a large-scale art installation and rad design details like hydraulic fixtures. Regular business hours of 12pm to 6pm (Sunday through Thursday) and 12pm to 8pm (Friday and Saturday) begin Monday, and the pop-up is scheduled to continue at least through the summer.
