In tandem with a new sales partnership between Barneys New York and menswear marque STAMPD, the luxury specialty retailer and west coast design house have released a curated variety of ready-to-wear pieces, labeled Barneys New York XO STAMPD 130 Collection.
Located on the second level at 130 S. La Brea Drive in Los Angeles, STAMPD’s flagship boutique has earned its label as a destination space where the architectural concept is figurative of an “idea box” – or rather a menswear lab - allowing the brand to test progressive pieces with the brands original cult followers. Correlating back to the flagship’s street address, The 130 Collection symbolizes an elevated selection of highly coveted inline pieces, re-worked with additional attention to detail and construction. It’s this that soldered the relationship between the department store and designer.
“I wanted to launch with Barneys when I knew it was the right time for the brand and we would have something unique to offer to the Barneys customer,” said Chris Stamp of the collaboration. “That’s where the concept of The 130 Collection was born. With our current collection titled New Soldier, the aesthetic and timing lined up in a way that formed a very organic conversation with the Barneys team in New York. We pulled a few pieces from the current collection and re-worked them exclusively for Barneys and our 130 S. La Brea store. We added specialty washed down cottons, making every piece special - something you could only experience if you sought it out."
The 130 Collection consists of four ready-to-wear pieces including a Raw Oversized Camo Overdyed Tee ($125), an Overdyed Camo Cargo Zip Pant($240), a Black Arctic Parka ($475), and an Overdyed Camo Bomber ($400). Each piece, which incorporates a unique and innovative overdye technique, will intentionally, gradually fade with each wash without compromising the quality of the garment.
