Over the weekend, for the exclusive release of her Air Jordan 1 at Undefeated, Aleali May saw her designer dreams come to life. Her highly coveted collaboration with Jordan Brand is a towering success, and she shared it with the city of Los Angeles in a very intimate and extremely nostalgic way.
Tracing back to her youth and that of many others who grew up in LA’s inner city, Undefeated repurposed its brick and mortar on South La Brea Ave. in ode to the famous Slauson Swap Meet. From the bright-colored signage out front to the well placed wall displays, the pop-up ventured back decades to re-create a theme that helped shape May’s adoring yet edgy aesthetic. And the city came out in support of her efforts, lining up in droves for hours on end with hopes to secure the mixed material Air Jordan 1 brimming in corduroy, satin and chenille. They also caught a glimpse of a few celebs in the process.
