This story is part of Image Issue 15, “Diaspora,” a fantastic voyage through the mecca of food, from Hollywood haunts to mall food courts to L.A. staples. Read the whole issue here.
The Hundreds’ food festival, Family Style Fest, is the place where food meets fashion in Los Angeles. This year was no exception: Restaurants and streetwear brands collaborated on inspired and inventive, limited-edition menu items and merch, which festivalgoers — this being an L.A. festival — naturally ate up. The overlap between the two scenes — streetwear and food — is something that makes a lot of sense, says Family Style Fest co-founder Miles Canares. “These worlds are so intermingled. The same audience that waits for two hours in line at Supreme on Thursdays — they’re the same kids who are waiting two hours in line for a sandwich. These worlds have the same people and the same consumers.”
To commemorate the hypebeast holiday, we put together a lookbook of all the merch available at Family Style Fest this year.
