I went to the opening event party tonight.Got there kinda late but was still kinda crazed.Red carpet event,free champagne, store looked pretty good and a step above of that shoe box in new york. Some super cool people were in attendance.Obviously Nigo, Pharrell, Lupe, along with some other celebs and entertainers.Here is some of my pics, Theyre not the best and for the most part are just my friends was shooting the shit with there.either way, enjoy

saw this funny quote on superTouchart.com

Love it or leave it, NIGO’s LA branch of the legendary Tokyo streetwear brand BAPE (aka: A Bathing Ape)—the brand that launched a thousand imitators—opened for business on Melrose Ave this Thursday nite with a star-studded media frenzy of a debut party. Two years too late? Yep, but remember this is LA, Ed Hardy and Crooks & Castles are still “cool” brands here.

lol

lol @ this

its his forum, im pretty sure he can post whatever he wants to?

and I would be surprised if there wasnt some sort of agreement involved with C.E.

also im sure his response was aimed at the paps in the report, not at you?

maybe im wrong?

quick thought,the layout is actually pretty ideal for shopping and not having to deal with the uneasiness or weird interaction between sales associates.Has a good layout to be able to browse and really look through the clothing, shoes, etc.
