“To become classic is something timeless… it’s something that never gets old,” says Josh Vides, founder and owner of CLSC. The brand, which has made waves in the streetwear game since 2010, has finally opened up its first brick and mortar in the heart the West Coast streetwear mecca on Fairfax Ave. “I didn’t want to create something that would pop and fizzle… I don’t follow trends, and I don’t think CLSC will ever be that brand.”
Josh’s brand ideology extends far beyond the concept of trends; he doesn’t want the CLSC flagship store to feel like some of the other shops that line Fairfax Ave, claiming, “I know what it’s like to walk into these stores, and feel like… not wanted, or not welcomed. That’s the complete opposite of what I want to do here.”
You can check out the grand opening video for CLSC below and head over to their flagship store at 517 1/2 N. Fairfax Ave.
