Stampd LA, founded back in 2009, was the brainchild of fashion-forward streetwear influencer Chris Stamp. In his capable hands, Stampd has churned out a lifestyle line with a full nine capsules, each well-received and sought after by a crowd that is at once young, driven and appreciative of high quality but simple items. The success comes as no small wonder, as Stamp’s Essentials would demonstrate that he thoroughly understands and embodies the very clientele he serves. Throwing a glance over his collection, it quickly becomes apparent that black is his color of choice with the versatile neutral stretching from his Stampd lambskin snapback down to the Nike Lunar Force 1 Fuse NRGs and Creeper Brogues he sports day and night, respectively. His other essential items are a blend of party-friendly accessories and gadgetry fitting for a creative on the go, with his mobile sound needs thoroughly filled by his set of Munitio NINES earphones and Bose Soundlink Bluetooth speakers. Finally, standing in stark contrast to his dark wardrobe are dashes of bling in the form of gold and diamond jewelry, proof that the former Cal Poly student and brand pioneer running a business out of his apartment has made it and made it big.
