I remember being, like, 13 years old and there were only three stores that you’d want to shop at online, and one of them was Karmaloop. They’d sell weird raver clothes and industrial oddities, and I was OBSESSED. I think the other two were Stars and Infinite Darkness and Delia’s, if that gives you any reference point for how cutting edge Karmaloop was at the time. I would just window shop Karmaloop for hours dying over baggy raver jeans and one-armed crop tops. Ah, memories!
It’s cool getting older because you get to see how other things get older, too: companies, friends, your hometown, etc.. It’s been rad watching Karmaloop evolve into the kinda streetwear shop that it is today, and I was stoked when their subscription-based mega-deals website PLNDR reached out to me about partnering. It’s like…life coming full circle or something. But obviously, all with consumption and commerce because duh, America.
Anyhow, they sent me over a Someday’s Lovin’ top, a pair of Hellz Bells shoes (which I’d been wanting for like MONTHS now — love them!!!), and these palm tree sunglasses as a little intro into what PLNDR has to offer. It’s all of the regular brands Karmaloop carries, so there’s lots of good schtuff on there!
