It's Pow Wow Week in Hawaii where many local and renowned artists amass in Kakaako to (literally) "paint the town." We had the privilege to have RVCA's Artist Network Program (ANP) artist Defer swing by our Ala Moana store (who happened to be here because of Pow Wow) and repaint a mural in our board room. With his eye for urban graffiti and a skillful hand with a brush, he made our wall look like one of the many colorful works of art you can now find in Kakaako. Stop by Ala Moana and check out his complete mural and the rest of his work!
To help celebrate the launching of Dim Mak X RVCA's 20th Annviersary Collection, international DJ/producer/musician/music executive Steve Aoki made a stop by our Ala Moana store for a meet and greet.
A huge eager crowd awaited the man himself in an orderly line outside the store - and when he did appear everyone went wild! As a gift, we got Steve a custom Local Motion straw hat, a maile lei, and customized cupcakes!
Ecstatic fans were able to shake, snap and snap a pic with Steve. Even dropped in convo or two. It was easy to see that he really cared about his fans.
RVCA artist Defer, who happened to be working on the store mural, also had an epic meeting with Steve and exchanged a few comments about Defer's sick work.
Mahalo Steve, Dim Mak and all who attended/participated!
