“I wanted to provide a destination where I could introduce the brand to a broader audience,” says Jason Angsuvarn, owner and founder. “The ability to have a platform where one could be immersed in the Jason Markk brand via all of the senses, sight, smell, sound, and feel was extremely exciting to me and this space offers the opportunity to achieve that.”
Opening up shop at 329 E. 2nd Street in Los Angeles, California, the shop will offer a drop off shoe care service! Jason Markk Sneaker Care Technicians will be in the shop cleaning dirty sneakers seven days a week. The new store officially opens Saturday, May 31 a 11 a.m. PST. Store hours will be Monday – Saturday 11 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. PST and Sunday 12:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.. The phone number of the shop is (213) 687-7060.
Jason Markk has been operating for over seven years now and the concept behind their new shop came from the brand’s motto, “live clean.”
Blending a modern aesthetic with touches of industrial design, the interior reflects the Jason Markk’s handcrafted approach and aspirational nature. All counters and cabinetry were custom made for the Jason Markk project. The state of the art audio and visual system sets the mood in the space along with Apple iPads to help educate the customer on products and usage. The store will also be a platform to introduce exclusive projects and to act as a concept space offering influencer-driven events each month.
Now that Jason Markk has a retail space, does this mean they’ll start pumping out collaborations with the likes of Asics, New Balance, and other major brands? Let us know what you think about the new Jason Markk location in L.A. in the comments below! Via Sole Collector.
