Union Los Angeles X Bianca Chandon by Julian Klincewicz

Available in store and online tomorrow at 11am is the Union Los Angeles / Bianca Chandon collaboration. The Capsule includes three shirts highlighting three different Los Angeles dance clubs from the 70s. Once upon a time in Los Angeles, young people had the chance to love the nightlife and boogie almost the same way the grown ups did, thanks to the popularity of all-ages, booze-free discos and nightclubs. These clubs were an early sanctuary for the youth, homosexual, and colored crowds. Unfortunately as they grew more popular, attention was drawn to the late night, care free, underage festivities. Many of these clubs died in the 80s, due to the official legality of things most of these spots were shot down. In hopes to preserve the memory of these once popular spots we shed light on the clubs with this collection. See the full editorial below and shop the collection available tomorrow.
