Founder of Stampd LA
Founded in 2009, Stampd LA has strongly progressed from its streetwear beginnings into a lifestyle brand through the vision of Chris Stamp. The consistently minimalist aesthetics of the brand, which primarily incorporates a monochromatic color palette of black and white, has garnered a loyal following where fans are never disappointed. Starting as a graphic design student before taking an avid interest in one-of-one customized sneakers, Chris had to resort to student loans to purchase blank Converse Chuck Taylors before Stampd starting being recognized as a global force. While the label has taken a step away from its strict black and white approach seen on previous seasons by injecting tasteful dashes of prints and patterns, it has added an enhanced aesthetic that continues to grow and diversify the brand.
