OSS opened Novemeber 15th in Downtown L.A. on 5th Street, the only shop of its kind in Los Angeles. The shop grew from the well known BMX blog and YouTube channel The Come Up, which is pretty amazing in and of itself. We’re (obv) huge fans of anyone who can turn an online outlet into a legitimate community and then an actual destination store in Downtown LA, so job well done Adam and Rob! In the above video, OSS’s co-founder Adam22 talks about the evolution and founding of the company, and what he wants to bring to the BMX game in LA.
Check out some photos from the site’s opening night in November below…

Aaron De La Cruz (interviewed here) has a new collaboration with Look/See Eyewear, who produced a limited edition (only 100 made) set of frames with Aaron’s trademark style. The designs aren’t printed on the glasses but rather laser-etched to maintain the crispness of the original design. Proceeds from the project will benefit the Urban Arts Partnership and help develop the skills of future artists. For more information on UAP, please visit their website, urbanarts.org
The sunglasses cost $75 and you can pick them up right here. More images below:
