Not only is RSVP Gallery hosting StockX’s RIMOWA creative showcase in honor of All-Star Weekend, the iconic boutique is also launching an in-store Valentine’s Day event in partnership with Ales Grey. Founded by “Sneaker Steve” Patiño, Ales Grey’s repurposed vintage shirts will play host to shiny crystal appliqué in honor of the Windy City’s most famous basketball team.
Limited edition items accompany the upcycled tees, which celebrate both the Chicago Bulls and Michael Jordan‘s legacy. “WORLD CHAMPS” is a common theme, emblazoned across the faded vintage T-shirts along with plenty of basketballs, Bulls logos and Jordan imagery. Ales Grey branding and “RSVP” is executed atop each garment, with RSVP Gallery shoppers given the opportunity to customize the shirt of their choice with the brand’s glittery accents, provided by Swarovski along with a selection of the jewelry company’s state-of-the-art neon UV crystals.
Chicago residents and visitors can head to RSVP Gallery for the in-store experience on February 14, from 5-7 PM, kicking off the store’s weekend-long events.
