Dubbed the “Combat Zone” by writer John Cole in the 1960s thanks to its notorious violence, crime and subsequent military patrol, Boston’s adult entertainment district saw its demise long ago due to the continued disorder and eventual rise of property values in the area – leaving only LaGrange Street’s Centerfolds and The Glass Slipper strip clubs standing to this day. The “Combat Zone” serves as the latest inspiration for Cambridge’s Concepts as the storied boutique has teamed up with Vans and its premium Syndicate line for a brand new collaborative release. Following pieces inspired by the likes of the Navy SEALs, the Harvard vs. Yale football rivalry, and the film Porky’s, the “Combat Zone” looks to continue Concepts’ tradition of unique and exclusive collaborations. Stay tuned for additional info on the release as the Concepts x Vans Syndicate “Combat Zone” is due out on March 30.
