Heineken USA launched an exclusive reverse-weave sports coat in partnership with legendary retail hotspot Union Los Angeles as part of the 2015 #Heineken100 program. Designed by Union Los Angeles Founder Chris Gibbs, the unstructured blazer marks the second of this year’s five collaborations created with local stores around the U.S. The one-of-a-kind product incorporates Japanese jersey with a special coated backing, and will be unveiled tonight at a VIP event at the Union LA store, where five attendees will have the opportunity to take home the one-of-a-kind item.
Now in its sixth year, the #Heineken100 program, which celebrates the brand’s hyper-influential consumers with custom collaborative products, is teaming up with legendary men’s fashion stores in five of its consumers’ favorite U.S. cities. These include KITH in New York City, Union in Los Angeles, Alchemist in Miami, RSVP Gallery in Chicago, and Concepts in Boston. Each partner is creating a custom product that will be unveiled at a VIP launch event and seeded to 100 national influencers.
