Thanks to the Internet, it’s now a simpler process to go from a local brand to an international phenomenon at a blitzing pace. Previously disparate cultures come together online, creating a fresh perspective with every iteration. Despite all this and like many other proud British brands, Trapstar attributes its aesthetic to its seminal location – in this case, the physical melting pot of West London. Here Life+Times takes the audience through a trip down Portabello Road to explore the brand’s modest beginnings, exploring how the outdoor vintage shops, car trunks and nightlife have made the brand into what it is today. Enjoy the latest episode of Life+Times’ The Blueprint above, and learn more about Trapstar UK here.
