Here’s a Look at the Tupac by VLONE Pop-Up Shop at Powamekka Cafe
The upcoming Tupac Shakur biopic, All Eyez On Me, is one of the most anticipated movies of the summer. Ahead of the movie’s release, A$AP Bari of VLONE has teamed up with merch giant, Bravado, to create a limited edition capsule collection, honoring the legacy and life of the late Tupac Shakur.
To celebrate the release of the collection, VLONE in partnership with Bravado are giving consumers the ultimate 2Pac experience by opening up a special pop-up shop in New York City. Located in the Lower Eastside area of NYC, the Tupac by VLONE pop-up shop will be open for three days (Fri., April 7 to Sun., April 9). Serving as the only destination where consumers can buy the VLONE 2Pac collection, the pop-up will also count several different art installations inspired by the West Coast MC.
The Tupac by VLONE collection will be made up of 18 pieces designed by the brand's creative director A$AP Bari. Compromised of a wide range of garments, the collection features several different hats, graphic tees, hoodies and a bathrobe. With the items releasing in three primary colors—black, red and orange—each piece of this collection will feature VLONE’s signature "V" throughout the entire capsule.
Along with VLONE's pop-up shop this weekend, restaurant Sweet Chick will also partake in the celebration of Tupac's biopic by opening up a three-day Powamekka Cafe right next door to VLONE's shop. Inspired by 2Pac's restaurant idea, the Powamekka Cafe will feature personal photos from Tupac’s archive, some of his most popular poems and his music memorabilia.
This limited exclusive Tupac by VLONE collection will be available Fri., April 7 to Sun., April 9, at the Tupac by VLONE store. Check out some of the apparel and accessories that make up this collection in the gallery above.
