The communal, underground spirit of Southern California’s punk and skate scenes has been a fertile source of streetwear inspiration from day one. What sets Babylon LA apart from the pack is their commitment to a physical, local presence that serves as an all-in-one retail space, community hang out, and skate spot.
Babylon LA offers a modern spin on the sometimes mischievous, sometimes confrontational DIY design ethic that papered streets with show flyers, made skateboarding one of the permanent banes of ‘normal’ society, and forever linked the idyllic, sun soaked climes of Southern California with raging, youthful rebellion.
To get the full sensory experience of the Burning Palms Cargo Pants, it would really help if you played L.A. Girl by the Adolescents or Los Angeles by X.
