LOAK ANGELES

LOAK ANGELES OAK Los Angeles Beverly Alta Vista 2

When news broke that OAK was finally making the hop from East coast to West coast, I’m pretty sure I wet my pants a little bit. The brand is known for making and finding and selling a mixture of goth, androgynous, upscale streetwear that come in black, black, some grays, black, white, black, silver, black, and black. Their stores in New York are nice and intimate and, while I have yet to visit their Downtown outpost, I have a feeling that it is somewhat New York-ish still.

EverySimpsonsEver FXX THe Simpsons 3

This is admittedly a weird post. Why? Because it’s about a local something we’ve been seeing that, despite research and reaching out to the source, we have no idea who is behind it. So, if you’ve driven or taken a bus or biked around the city you have probably seen some very abstract FXX advertisements that appear to be advertising something related to The Simpsons, the legendary “adult” cartoon. The campaign is so well done and—while not isolated to Los Angeles—seems to be on every bus stop in town.
