A little history about the store
Union first opened its doors in NYC in 1989, followed shortly after by the Los Angeles chapter, which is now the only remaining door. Our concept is simple we walk the line of fashion and function. We like to offer functional clothing that has subtle fashion sensibilities.
It is our opinion that most fashion designers/brands will offer design which makes for clothing that is more costumey. On the other hand functional clothing is boring and uninspiring. We find brands that mix both worlds giving our customers more freedom to express themselves without looking like they are playing dress-up.
Our history is steeped in offering clothing and fashion differing from what you can find in department and chain stores. We have always prided our selves in the fact that we give customers an option outside of the mainstream. The way we have been successful at this is two pronged; finding new designers and brands and/or finding brands and designers from overseas and introducing them to the US market.
We’ve always tried to keep an element of the store where we give young up and coming designers a place to showcase and sell their goods. As a direct outcome, we have become a store that has “broken” many brands here in America, of which most have gone on to great commercial success.
…and while we are always searching for “the new”, we also have a sturdy foundation of tried and true brands that we have strong long standing relationships with. We feel that although we are looked at as trend setters, we never carry clothing in here that is “trendy.”
Our current product mix is the strongest it has ever been.
