Co-founders of No Vacancy Inn
From working with Virgil Abloh and A$AP Rocky to off-the-chain Boiler Room sets, as Tremaine Emory and Acyde, the Denim Tears designer and Nike employee-turned-DJ are rightly celebrated for their respective accomplishments as individuals. As the founders of No Vacancy Inn, however, the pair are considerably more than the sum of their parts. Through podcasts, pop-ups and parties, the collective is as much responsible for helping push the culture forward as they are taking the lead in documenting it. From mixes by Hiroshi Fujiwara and Supreme’s Angelo Baque to a line of apparel and even coining the now-ubiquitous “Art Dad,” Emory and Acyde continually prove themselves to be standard-bearers for a generation which demands instigation, rather than reaction, from its cultural figureheads.
