Daft Punk Is Bringing A Pop Up Shop To West Hollywood
The robot heads are slowly getting back in action this year. Wether it was authentic or a just a ruse by a youtube troll, a video recently surfaced teasing 2017 tour dates. While the video has since been removed, Daft Punk has remained in the public eye. Recently, the duo announced that they would be performing at the upcoming GRAMMY awards. Their last public performance was nearly five years ago at the 2013 GRAMMY awards, but no tour accompanied the single performance.
Earlier this week Daft Punk announced a pop up shop to be held in Los Angeles. From February 11 through the 19th, the pop up shop will be held at 8818 Melrose Ave. in the West Hollywood borough of Los Angeles (directly across the street from Maxfield, the luxury boutique shop that is known for selling Balmain leather pants and other unique streetwear.)
Pitchfork reports that “Fashion and design brands Off-White, Gosha Rubchinskiy, Enfants Riches Deprimes, Darkdron, Hervet Manufacturier, and Han Cholo have all made apparel and accessories just for the pop-up, and there will be special edition Daft Punk official merchandise available as well. And for the first time, pieces from Daft Punk’s online store, including hats, jackets, yo-yos, toys, pens, and frisbees, will be for sale in a retail space.”
Reportedly, designers such as Off White, Gosha Rubchinskiy, Darkdron, Enfants Riches Deprimes, Hervet Manufacturier and Han Cholo have will all be contributing to the pop up event.
The store will open up at 11 a.m. on Saturday and remain open everyday until 7 p.m every day through the following Sunday. The shop will be open at 12 p.m. through 5 p.m. on Sundays, from February 11-19.
While the news is certainly not as thrilling as a Daft Punk 2017 tour, it is still exciting and builds upon our hope that maybe, just maybe, the duo will make their epic return this summer.
