Union LA's Latest Drop Is a Juxtaposition of Worlds

“For all the creatives who can’t be put into one box.”

Union LA‘s latest drop shows a deep mix of many cultures and interests. Taking two art forms, music and film, graphics were created using the literal meanings behind the names of movies and musical acts. With Chris Gibbs‘ fascination with juxtaposing contrasting worlds, a collection of T-shirts, totes, sweats, and hoodies is born.

In the February drop, we see a bootleg Staff tee that shows the two locations of Union’s retail stores, a Radiohead shirt that plays on the word “head” in street culture (sneakerhead, metal-head, rap-head…etc), an ATLliens Outkast/Alien-movie tote, and also a very special shirt that imagines what Malcolm X’s tour merch for Africa would have looked like. It should also be noted that the lookbook was photographed during the Martin Luther King Parade in Leimert Park.

Take a look at the offerings above for Union LA’s February drop lookbook. Those looking to purchase any of the items can find them over at Union’s web store.
