Now, with this new retail step, people can score their new Evisu jeans in the big apple where you can step in the word of this Japanese denim brand.
Collaboration With Artist Stash
The Evisu store interior is a mix of wood and steel, but there’s also a huge skateboard deck wall, including 32 decks, while entering the store. This piece of skate art is designed by New York artist Josh Franklin, better known as Stash. He got the name Stash from the colloquial term stashing, which equates to hiding things. Growing up in a very small home, Franklin felt the need to hide or stash his most valued belongings from his brother.
He’s a graffiti artist and graphic designer based in Brooklyn, New York. While growing up in New York, his inspiration came at a young age with making illegal graffiti art on the sides of the city’s subway trains on his way to school. Later in the early 1980s, Stash started painting trains alongside other artists such as Futura and Zephyr. He exhibited at an age of 17 with pop artists such as Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat and later continued on as a successful gallery artist.
