Are you a Tyler, The Creator fan? Do you love his clothes, but hate having to worry about his online store selling out? Do you hate having to wait for your orders to ship out? If you answered yes to any of these questions and happen to live in Southern California, then you’re in luck. On October 26, Tyler celebrated the grand opening of his flagship Golf Wang store in Los Angeles.
Tyler is well known for establishing his own signature style for most things, including producing music, filming comedy shorts, and designing clothing. Just this past July, he released his fourth studio album, titled Flower Boy. He established Golf Wang in 2011 as a way to showcase his own personal clothing designs. For every catalog, he and his friends come to together for photo shoots, modeling his clothing themselves. The brand consists of colorful, often pattern-heavy articles of clothing, including everything from neon blue slides to highlighter-orange fur coats.
The construction on the Fairfax location initially began at the beginning of this past July. The store is divided into two sections, half of the space is dedicated to the storefront itself, while the other half features a bowl for visitors to skate.
Over the past six years, Golf Wang became an increasingly popular brand, though only available via Tyler’s online store. With the opening of his flagship store, Tyler celebrates a huge milestone in his career and can now share his products with even more fans, who might not have been able to acquire the clothing before.
