Launch LA :: Day 1

Launch LA :: Day 1

Launch Trade show kicked off today, complete with a barbershop giving free cuts, a shipping-container lounge and stocked cocktail bar.

The whole set up is based in an aircraft hanger, designed to be curated for both new and existing brands with style. The vibe at the show is nice, no ‘too cool’ posers getting around (or at least not as many as normal), high booths so you feel engaged in what’s right in front of you and a sweet taco van for lunch.

The highlight is the Blind Barber for sure. They are not only offering complimentary haircuts to passersby, but also rock out a full cocktail bar after 2pm. It’s going on tomorrow as well.

We’re there to cover the whole thing, so expect a bunch of content from this show over the rest of the week; including brands like Tallow, Wallen, The Critical Slide Society and Drift Eyewear.

(ps > tim got asked about his tee five times, even had some trend site lady take a photo of him. he is big time trendy guy!)
