After launching a few weeks back, the Open Lifestyle crew held an opening party on Thursday with store discount, free drinks, and old school hip-hop tunes throughout the night.
Since opening just a short while ago, the store has already begun to carve itself a name in the UK scene. The store is decked out with some less common brands like Us Versus Them, Black Scale, Publish and Superb and future goals for Open seems to be only to continue this trend. DJ’s kept some of the best hip-hop, soul and RnB flowing throughout the night while the store displayed their newest goods on the bottom floor including some remarkable pieces from Akindofguise.
As expected, a large amount of alcohol was consumed, handed out by two superior women wearing Open brand T-shirts. It reminded me of the events you tend to see in the more renowned cities and I for one hope, and have heard, that this won’t be a one off for the Thornton’s Arcade. Stay up to date with the store at Open Lifestyle.
