A stalwart of Los Angeles’s diverse subculture scene, Tal Cooperman is that cultivated local who knows where the best parties are at, which bands you should look out for, and can tell you crazy stories about Louie Vito and Machine Gun Kelly. Blending his interests in music, art and fashion with California’s laid-back sensibility, Cooperman looks to his apparel label CRSL — short for Circus of Life — as a platform for expression. A kaleidoscope of Cooperman’s lifestyle, each collection is upheld by underground iconography and enticing graphics in its street-ready designs. Shown in his Essentials for us, a CRSL logo tee, Barton Perreira sunglasses, and a black beanie provide examples of his sartorial stance, paired next to a selection of valuables and a Starbucks Los Angeles gift card for daily refreshments. Head to CRSL for more on the streetwear imprint.
