Conversation with Chris Gibbs

 Freund Von Freuden has posted an interview with the owner of Union LA , Chris Gibbs. Union LA has established itself as a cornerstone of streetwear culture in America and the interview delves into Chris’ day to day life and how he got to where he is today. A short excerpt from the interview below.

“Streetwear is to fashion what Punk, Hip Hop and Jazz were to mainstream music. It started as a youth driven counter-culture but as it matures, it gets more sophisticated. Our store, specifically represents the more sophisticated side of this style of clothing. This more refined version now attracts customers that may not have ever been into it before. Creative, open-minded and sometimes older clientele are now appreciating the witty and creative sensibilities of streetwear. I refer to it as “Luxury Street”.”
