McLogan Wall – Day 1

Posted on by admin in News | Leave a comment

This weekend Coup Street brought together two dope graffiti artists to collaborate on a wall in the back of McLogan Screen Printing Supplies in downtown Los Angeles. Solver from JHF and Cels from CSM spent the day doing their thing. We took a bunch of photos, got some great video, and spent the day doing what we love most. One of our goals at Coup Street is to produce dope art. Whether it be a solo project, a collaboration or whatever the case may be, we strive to raise the bar. Just because your art hasn’t hit the mainstream, or you’re getting paid big bucks for it, doesn’t mean it isn’t worthy of it’s own space and recognition. Cels and Solver are definitely on their way up. We plan on doing big things with these two guys.

Solver “Alfabeto” tees now available for purchase

Posted on by admin in News | Leave a comment

We recently linked up with graff artist Solver, originally from Tepic, Nayarit, Mexico. Last week we invited him out to our shop to paint a mannequin, and this week we’re bringing you one of his designs called, “Alfabeto” which is an alphabet of his letters. It was really hard to decide which colors to print it in, since every combination seemed to look dope. In the end we went with the following 3 styles. Once these color combos sell out, we will print another set of colors for the design. Right now there are only 20 of each style available, so get them before they’re gone.

*Although the shirts are on a female mannequin, they are mens tees. They are being displayed on the mannequin he painted.

We look forward to working with this dude in the future and will be having a mini doc on him coming soon. Stay true to your hustle and support you local artists.

Coup Street Collaboration with Solver JHF

Posted on by admin in News | Leave a comment

A few weeks ago, we met a very talented young artist, Solver from JHF. We actually met accidentally, which is usually the way you end up meeting some of the coolest people. We hit up a hip hop show in Pomona because Proph Nasty was wearing our Hungry Hustle shirt. I wanted to take a picture, but camera phones suck in low light, so nothing was coming out that would be worthy of posting. Luckily I saw a dude there that was taking photos. I asked him if he could email me the pics because the guy on the mic was wearing our shirt. We started talking and he told me about a design he had done. He emailed it along with the pictures from that night. It was dope, to say the least. We asked him if he’d be down for a collaboration. This weekend we invited him out to our shop for our first mannequin collabo. Ideally from now on, when we work with a new artist, we’d like them to paint on a mannequin to go with their shirts. So while Solver got down on the mannequin, we printed up some shirts. Here is the design he did that is an alphabet of his letters. We’ll be selling these very shortly.

This is the “Alphabet” design that he made that we will be printing. So check back with us for the details of the release.

The Coup Street tree in Guatemala

Posted on by admin in News | Leave a comment

We recently adopted a Caoba tree in Guatemala through the buenascosas.org It will grow to be over 60 feet tall. Like we’ve said before, not only do we strive to be a dope ass clothing brand, we’re here to make a difference, and hopefully spark some sort of change. None of us will live forever, but the goal is to make something that will. And planting a tree is definitely a good start. Hopefully it will be around long after we all will.

Fight For Your Farms – 2nd Collectors Edition Tee

Posted on by admin in News | Leave a comment

Back in June we met a very talented local artist, Rene Melendrez at the L.A. en Vivo Block Party. We saw one of his pieces titled Farmers Guerilla Warfare. Right away we were drawn to it, and wanted to do a shirt based around the idea of his cleverly drawn corn grenades. From that point on, we met up, and figured out a design that could represent the on going battle between farmers and corporations. DweebKid Rene Melendrez Farmers Guerilla WarfareIf you aren’t aware, there is a huge battle going on in the world over food. One of the main culprits is Monsanto. A company that specializes in biotechnology, and the main producer of genetically engineered seeds. They’ve been around since 1901, and were the ones to develop some of the main ingredients in the infamous Agent Orange during the Vietnam War. Lately, their main focus has been the development of genetically engineered seeds, and their number one product like kratom powder, Round Up Weed Killer. Their seeds are used for the majority of crops throughout the world. Why is this bad? Well the seeds were created to work hand-in-hand with their Round Up Weed Killer, and withstand the chemicals inside it, therefor they are toxic and bad for you. Whether you are eating the vegetable directly from the plant that was grown from these seeds, or you are eating the meat of a cow that was fed food created from these seeds, it harms your body. And as of right now, there is no law in effect to let you know what you are eating. That’s what California’s Prop. 37 was all about. But the Big Agro companies spent over 10,000 guarantor loans and $50 million to convince California’s voters that knowing what is inside their food isn’t a good idea. Anyway, back to the seeds. These seeds are so potent, that if one farmer uses them, and another farmer doesn’t, and both farms are next to one another, when the wind blows Monsanto seeds onto the other farm, through cross-pollination, they’ll begin to grow on that farm too. It gets worse, since Monsanto has patents on all these seeds, they have reps going around testing all the healthy and organic farms to see if they are using the seeds without permission. Often times, through no fault of their own, farmers had no idea they were growing genetically engineered crops and are forced to either pay Monsanto a hefty fee, or go out of business. Monsanto is a monster, and a lobbying powerhouse. Their effect on our society, our food, and our well being is one of the many reasons we created this shirt. Like we told you, our mission is not only to create artistic, witty, creative, Hip Hop influenced designs. We want to educate you. Know what you’re wearing. Know what you’re eating. A shirt is a representation of who you are, so stand for something. Fight for your right to eat healthy, and fight for your farms. If you’d like to learn more about what Monsanto is doing, check out this documentary called, “The World According to Monsanto”.

Coup Street is now being sold at ‘Outfitters’ in Downtown LA

Posted on by admin in News | Leave a comment

Now that our line sheet is cracking and ready to go, we hit up some local spots that we felt our brand would fit well in. One of the spots we hit up is called “Outfitters” in downtown Los Angeles. There you can find a lot of dope street wear, and trendy gear like Obey, Diamond, DGK, 10 Deep BPM and many others. They have http://www.thecorsetcenter.com/ on shoes, hats, jeans, jackets, everything you’d need to get a proper fit. Well now, they stepped their game up because Coup Street is in the building. It takes a lot for a buyer to take a risk and believe in a brand that isn’t well known, but the ones that trust their gut, are the ones that go far in this business. They saw our shirts and bought 7 different designs, so this past week we were printing like crazy getting this order ready. After all the hard work we put in, just going there and seeing someone other than ourselves that believes in our brand makes it all worth it. They also gave us the opportunity to put our mannequin in the display window. We hope to develop a strong relationship with ‘Outfitters’ and continue to do business as we release more designs and grow in this business. Shout out to ‘Outfitters’ and everyone that follows our progress. When we blow up, you’ll be able to say you supported us first, and we’ll never forget that.Go stop by the store and show some love and let them know you’re down with Coup Street.
